INFORMATION FOR PROVIDERS WHO WISH TO OFFER NEW HCSA SERVICES



A new Healthcare Services Act (HCSA) will take effect from 3 Jan 2022, and will be implemented progressively to replace the current PHMCA to meet Singapore's evolving healthcare needs, and better safeguard the safety and welfare of patients as new healthcare models and services emerge.

MOH will be licensing four new non-premises based services progressively, starting with EAS and MTS in Phase 1 (i.e. 3 Jan 2022). We will help new providers obtain their HCSA licences in due course by:

  • Updating you on the licensing timelines;
  • Involving you in the relevant service regulations consultations (setting out the key requirements to provide the service); and
  • Walking you through the e-licensing system (i.e. HALP).
