Patients receive drug subsidies based on their paying status and the scheme under which the drug is covered (e.g. Standard Drug List, Medication Assistance Fund, inpatient drug subsidy, etc). Some drugs are subsidised only for specific clinical indications.
The following drugs are subsidised at our public healthcare institutions for eligible patients. These drugs cover up to 90% of the total volume of medication prescriptions. The list is reviewed and updated on a regular basis by the MOH.
