Your loved one can be covered for standard medical and hospitalisation treatment at government or restructured hospitals, polyclinics and approved intermediate and long-term care services if they are sick and need financial assistance, using the Medical Fee Exemption Card.
Your savings must be $6,000 or less, and you must have monthly per capita family income of $800 or less.
Applicants must be residents of MOH-funded nursing homes or MSF-funded sheltered and disability homes.
You must be a Singapore citizen, Permanent Resident or a stateless person with documents from the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority to prove you are not an illegal immigrant.
