What is an Integrated Shield Plan?
A quick recap for those that are not sure what an Integrated Shield Plan(ISP) is (skip this section if you are fully versed with the workings of MediShield LIFE, Integrated Shield Plan, Integrated Shield Plan Rider):
95% coverage for your medical and hospitalisation bills consists of 2 components. The 2 components are MediShield Life and an Integrated Shield Plan (with rider).
Credits: Ministry of Health (MOH Singapore), MediShield LIFE.
The base component, MediShield LIFE is provided by the Central Provident Board (CPF) Board. MediShield Life covers a portion of your bills, sufficient for Class B2 or Class C wards in public hospital.
Deductibles (up to the first S$3,000) and Co-insurance (up to 10% of claim amount) is not covered by MediShield LIFE and is payable via MediSave or Cash.
Integrated Shield Plan with rider
The second component, an Integrated Shield Plan (with rider) is an additional private insurance coverage. The provided coverage is ON TOP of MediShield LIFE coverage and run by private insurers. The coverage provided covers Class A/B1 wards in public hospitals or private hospitals.
Deductibles and Co-insurance can be covered up to 95% with an Integrated Shield Plan rider. Do note that Integrated Shield Plan riders are only payable by cash (cannot be funded with MediSave)
There will be no overlapping of coverage or payment with Integrated Shield Plan and MediShield LIFE.
If you are covered under an Integrated Shield Plan, you will enjoy the combined benefits of MediShield Life, which is administered by the Central Provident Fund Board, and the enhanced benefits of the additional private insurance coverage portion, which is provided by the respective insurers.
