Integrated Shield Plan Claims for COVID-19
As our borders progressively reopen to permit international travel, MOH is allowing Singapore Citizens and PRs who travel out of Singapore to claim for inpatient COVID-19 treatment from MediShield Life and Integrated Shield Plans on or after 20 Oct 2020, should they experience onset of COVID-19 symptoms within 14 days of their return to Singapore.
To support Singapore’s COVID-19 vaccination programme, our IncomeShield plans will cover hospitalisation due to COVID-19 vaccination, if it becomes necessary. The COVID-19 vaccination needs to be approved by the Health Sciences Authority (HSA) and administered in Singapore.
