HEALTHCARE SUBSIDY LEVEL
5.1 Citizens, SPRs and foreigners in Singapore are charged differently for public healthcare services. Citizens enjoy heavy subsidies in Class B2 and C wards.
SPRs receive significant subsidy, while foreigners are not subsidised at all. The subsidy level distinction reflects the privileges of citizenship, and to further sharpen the distinction between citizens and SPRs. Refer to Appendix 2C for the Table of Subsidy Level.
5.2 Owing to the differences in healthcare subsidy for citizens, SPR and foreigners, some insurers apply a citizenship factor on the hospitalization claims. Citizenship factor means a percentage applied to the medical expenses of an insured person (who is not a Singaporean), that is claimable under the policy.

▪ claim form to be completed by the insured;
▪ physician’s statement by the attending doctor;
▪ discharge summary; and
▪ original medical bills.
7.2 These are the standard documents required by the insurer to assess the claim. The insurer reserves the right to call for other necessary documents. As mentioned previously, for any patient claiming under an Integrated Shield Plan approved under Medisave, all he needs to do is to inform the hospital of the name of the insurer, fill in a standard claim form and the hospital will file the claim on his behalf for inpatient expenses, through the MediClaim System. This applies to public hospitals and major private hospitals in Singapore.
