Using your MediSave

If you plan to use your Medisave to settle your hospital bill, please complete and sign the Medical Claims Authorization Form (MCAF). The Medisave account holder should bring their Identity Card for verification.

For inpatient admissions, the maximum Medisave withdrawal limit for hospitalization is S$450 per day.

Medisave can also be used to cover surgical procedures, with withdrawal limits determined by the type of surgery.

Starting from November 1, 2016, the use of Medisave has been extended to cover deliveries of fifth and higher-order births, regardless of the couple's Medisave balance.

MediSave Maternity Package (MMP)

In August 2004, the Government introduced the Medisave Maternity Package (MMP) to assist couples with delivery and pre-delivery medical expenses, including consultations, diagnostics, and medication charges.

You can utilize an additional $900 from your Medisave account for this purpose, provided you submit the original receipts for pre-delivery expenses upon admission. Please note that an administrative fee will be incurred if the receipts are submitted seven days after the patient’s discharge.

MediShield-approved Private Integrated Shield Plan (IP)

Thomson Medical Centre is accredited by Medisave. Patients have the option to use their Medisave funds and/or their Medishield - Approved Private Integrated Shield Plan (IP) offered by private insurers to cover hospital charges.

Your private insurer may provide an electronic Letter Of Guarantee (e-LOG), allowing the hospital to waive admission deposits up to the specified limit. This facilitates a reduced upfront payment. Upon hospital discharge, the patient is required to settle the hospital bill and doctors’ fees in full.
