Name and Constituency of Member of Parliament
Anthea Ong
Nominated MP 

Question No. 3509

To ask the Minister for Health (a) why is "treatment of self-inflicted injuries or injuries resulting from attempted suicide" not covered under Medishield Life; and (b) whether the Ministry will consider removing this from the standard exclusions under Medishield Life.

Answer

1      In general, treatment of self-inflicted injuries or injuries resulting from attempted suicide is excluded from MediShield Life, so as to not encourage such behaviour. Nonetheless, exceptions can be considered where such injuries might arise from mental illnesses.
