New integrated shield plan from 1 May 2016

Today, 16/3/2016, Insurers to offer new integrated shield plan from May 1

A new private medical insurance plan that offers identical benefits across insurers for stays in Class B1 wards in public hospitals will be available from May 1.

This Standard Integrated Shield Plan (IP), set up by the Ministry of Health (MOH) together with private insurers, comes nearly two years after a committee that worked out the details of MediShield Life pushed for it.

The Standard IP to be offered by five private insurers here — AIA, Aviva, Great Eastern Life, Prudential and NTUC Income — come with standardised benefits, making it easier for consumers to compare premiums across insurers.
