Healthier SG is a new, long-term reform healthcare plan for Singapore implemented by the Ministry of Health (MOH).
Given the changing landscape of health issues, chronic diseases are becoming more prominent which can cause financial and emotional burdens in addition to the health burdens. Hence, Healthier SG aims to promote preventive care to allow us to live longer and better with a peace of mind.
Through the Healthier SG scheme, you can enrol with your chosen family doctor who will aid you in your health matters through continuous care.
a. Develop a personalised health plan based on your needs
By choosing Keystone Clinic & Surgery as your family provider, you will be able to regularly see your preferred doctor who will then become familiar with your health goals and conditions. By building this strong rapport, our doctors will be able to recommend a personalised health plan based on your needs and preferences.
b. Greater access to community programmes
Family, friends and the community play a significant role to encourage residents to make adjustments to their routines on an on-going basis. With Healthier SG, community partners such as the Health Promotion Board (HPB), People’s Association (PA), and Sport Singapore (SportSG) will work together to further enhance the range and accessibility of activities which promotes healthier living.
These community activities will support residents in their journey of living healthily and adhering to their health plan. Residents with higher clinical risks will also be able to participate in structured programmes such as weight management or smoking cessation programmes under the guidance of healthcare professionals. Additionally, Seniors Citizens will benefit from additional support from Eldercare Centres.
c. Be able to go for nationally recommended health screenings and vaccinations
Singapore Citizens can enjoy free nationally recommended vaccinations and screenings when they visit us after appointing us as your Healthier SG clinic.
d. Greater healthcare subsidies
Patients under the Chronic Disease Management Programme (CDMP) will be able to use their MediSave to pay the full amount for their treatment in 2024. This replaces the current co-pay system of 15% of the bill.
CHAS cardholders enrolled to Healthier SG General Practitioner (GP) clinics with higher chronic medication needs and bills can opt for the new Healthier SG Chronic Tier. This allows you to enjoy greater subsidies of up to 87.5% for selected chronic medications from 2024 onwards, making prices of these medicines at GP clinics comparable to those at polyclinics. You will also receive subsidies of up to $360 annually for other aspects of your chronic care (e.g. consultation and lab tests).
e. Earn health points
After completing your first onboarding consultation with your chosen Healthier SG clinic, you will receive 3,000 Healthpoints (worth $20) through the Healthy 365 app which you can use to exchange for vouchers from participating merchants. You will also earn health points for staying active.
a. Enrolment Exercise
From May 2023, residents aged 40 and above with chronic illness can enroll with their current GP clinic if the clinic is Healthier SG-registered.
Healthier SG benefits for enrolled residents will commence from July 2023 in line with the National Enrolment Programme.
b. National Enrolment Programme
From July 2023, the National Enrolment Programme will start with Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents who are aged 60 years and above. They will be invited via SMS to choose any Healthier SG clinic or polyclinic. SMS invitations will also be sent progressively to those aged 40 to 59 years.
By registering your interest with us, you consent Keystone Clinic & Surgery to contact you regarding more information on enrolment through Healthier SG.
