Drug Subsidies & Schemes

 

11 Dec 2018

The Ministry of Health (MOH) provides subsidies for drugs at our public hospitals, specialist outpatient clinics and polyclinics to ensure that patients have access to effective medications for common medical conditions in Singapore.

Who is Eligible?


Patients receive drug subsidies and assistance based on their subsidy and means-test status, and the scheme under which the drug is covered (e.g. Standard Drug List (SDL), Medication Assistance Fund (MAF)).

What drugs can I claim for?


If you need financial support to pay for the medications you are taking, check the following list to see if they are included.
