Pro-ration of Class A/B1 and Private Hospital Bills

Bills for higher class wards (e.g. Class A, Class B1 and private hospitals) are pro-rated to their equivalent Class B2 bill size based on the pro-ration factors in the table below.


Pro-ration of Bills for Singapore Permanent Residents and Non-Singaporeans

For Singapore Permanent Residents (SPRs) and non-Singaporeans, the pro-ration factor due to citizenship status will be applied to the charges incurred by you before the MediShield Life claim is computed. This is to equalize the MediShield Life payout for Singaporeans and non-Singaporeans.


The percentage to be applied to your hospital bill is as such:

Ward Class
Percentage of charges incurred used to calculate MediShield Life Claim
Singaporean SPR Foreigners
C (Public Hospital) 100% 44% 20%
