Beside nursing homes/ old folk’s home in Johor Bahru, there may soon be another compelling reason why more Singaporeans will look northward for health treatments.
Usage of CPF Medisave or payment of medical bills overseas (including Johor Bahru) might soon be possible. This covers non-urgent hospitalisation, palliative care as well as nursing homes charges. Currently, MOH has only allowed the use of Medisave overseas under strict conditions such as emergency treatment.
The idea that is not lost in the Ministry of Health (MOH) really, is to ensure all Singaporeans have access to affordable healthcare, and not just developing Singapore itself as a world-class health care provider. Over the years, MOH has received requests from many Singaporeans to allowing usage of Medisave for elective hospitalisation overseas. Extending the usage of Medisave overseas is a viable option towards affordable healthcare.
