What is Healthier SG?
The Singapore government has launched this effort to support all Singaporeans in taking important steps toward better health. To encourage community support for a healthier lifestyle, Singaporeans must be connected to a family doctor.
The number of people needing health care services for illnesses and even chronic diseases rises as our population ages. Through Healthier SG, we can slow down health decline, lessen the load on loved ones, increase healthy life expectancy, and enhance the quality of life for residents.
What are the benefits of Healthier SG?
- You can sign up for Healthier SG with the doctor of your choosing.
- The price of medications at participating GP clinics will be comparable to that at polyclinics.
- Citizens will be given free national screenings and vaccines.
- Residents can schedule a face-to-face onboarding health consultation, which will be fully paid for by the Government by using CHAS
- Can waive the requirement for residents to co-pay part of their bills in cash when using MediSave for chronic care management
When will Healthier SG start?
In the second half of 2023, individuals who are 60 and older will begin to benefit from it.
The Ministry of Health (MOH) hopes that by focusing on preventive care rather than “sick care” through the Healthier SG Programme, citizens would finally be given the tools they need to maintain their improved health.
In order to begin a connection with a doctor who will manage their health holistically, eligible citizens will be encouraged to enroll with a primary care clinic of their choosing through SMS.
The following two years will see enrolment open to those between the ages of 40 and 59.
Doctors will create a health plan during the free initial appointment, which may include lifestyle changes, routine health exams, and vaccinations.
