How will the revised chemotherapy benefits under MediShield Life and MediSave impact my claims from 1 September 2022?
Each cancer drug treatment on the Cancer Drug List (CDL) will have its own MediShield Life claim limits and MediSave withdrawal limits.
You may refer to the MOH website for the list of cancer drug treatments that are claimable under MediShield Life and MediSave, and their respective claim and withdrawal limits. Please also consult your doctor if you wish to find out whether the treatment that you are currently undergoing is on the list.
The CDL will only come into effect for Integrated Shield Plans (IPs) on 1 April 2023. If you have an IP, you will continue to be covered under your current policy terms until it is renewed on or after 1 April 2023.
For example, if your IP is up for renewal on 1 November 2023, the CDL and its revised limits will only apply then. Insurers may decide to cover treatments beyond the CDL under their riders, though the extent of coverage may vary. Your insurer should inform you of the details of your IP and rider coverage by end 2022.
