    • You will be classified as a subsidised patient if your first visit is via:

      • Referral letter from a Government Restructured Hospital under subsidised status, A&E, Polyclinic or SAF, without specifying a specialist by name.
      • Discharge from inpatient class B2 or C without specifying a specialist by name.

    • Under MOH guidelines, patients will be classified as private or subsidised.


      Patient will be classified as the following under MOH guidelines: 

      You are a private patient if your first visit is via:

      • Self-referral or Walk-in
      • Referral letter from General Practitioner (GP)
      • Referral from a Private Hospital
      • Referral letter from a restructured hospital under private status and / or specifying a consultant by name
      • Referral letter from a Polyclinic and specifying a consultant by name
      • Discharge from inpatient paying class ward.

      All foreign residents and non-residents will be classified as private patients.

      You are a subsidised patient if your first visit is via: 

      • Referral letter from a restructured hospital under subsidised status, polyclinic or SAF without specifying a specialist by name
      • Discharge from inpatient subsidised class ward (B2 or C) without specifying a specialist by name.

      Subsidy is only applicable for Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents, who are not existing private patients for the same medical condition.

      If you are a subsidised patient, you will be attended to by a team of doctors, supervised by a consultant. Together they will provide the level of care most appropriate to your medical needs. The doctor attending to you may change at each visit.

      Should you request for preferred doctor, you may do so with the understanding that you will be charged as private patient.
