Medical consultations and coverings, medical examinations for work cross functions, and telemedicine services might be coated below the plan, which is a part of a brand new primary healthcare system for workers, the ministry stated in a press launch. 

Prices of primary care plans vary from S$108 to S$145 per employee yearly and will be paid by employers in common instalments, corresponding to month-to-month funds.

This provides employers a “greater peace of mind” when migrant workers search medical care, Minister for Manpower Tan See Leng stated at a signing ceremony for the Memorandum of Understanding for Project MigrantWell on Monday.

GEOGRAPHICAL SECTORS

Under the brand new primary healthcare system, Singapore might be organised into six geographical sectors, every run by an “anchor operator”.

Three medical service suppliers – Fullerton Healthcare Group, SATA CommHealth and StarMed Specialist Centre – have been appointed anchor operators for 5 of the sectors.

Non-governmental organisation St Andrew’s Mission Hospital is the anchor operator for the remaining sector.

“The mix of operators will enable MOM to assess the benefits and strengths that different commercial and NGO operators bring,” stated MOM.
