Medical subsidies for needy Singaporeans who fall ill from the haze: PM Lee

 

The Government will provide monetary assistance to Singaporeans who need help with their medical expenses should they fall ill from the haze, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong announced on Thursday.
At a press conference, he revealed that the Health Ministry (MOH) will implement a special scheme where those who suffer from respiratory problems or conjunctivitis because of the haze can see their General Practitioners, pay $10, and the MOH will settle the rest of the bill.
This applies to young Singaporeans aged 18 and below, elderly Singaporeans aged 65 and above, CHAS (Community Health Assist Scheme) card holders, PA and Medical Fee Exemption Card holders.
Starting today, the Government will also hold a daily press briefing to update Singaporeans of the haze situation and recommend protective measures for the day ahead.
