NTUC supports MediShield Life recommendations
In a statement, the Labour Movement says it supports MediShield Life, as it will provide all Singaporeans with better protection against large medical bills and assure Singaporeans that they are covered for life.
It says it's reassuring that premiums will be fully covered by Medisave contributions.
NTUC says it's also heartened that the MediShield Life Review Committee has heeded its call to review the potential duplication of medical insurance benefits.
It hopes to get more companies onboard the Portable Medial Benefits Scheme as a possible way of reducing such duplication.
It says employers should consider taking up portable medical benefits that ride on MediShield Life or provide additional Medisave contributions to help their workers pay for MediShield Life or Integrated Shield Plan premiums.
