Is this post by The Independent Singapore just to create hatred for the Govt. Clearly Ministry of Health website shows you have to fill a form to help pay for a relative. Ministry of Health don’t just deduct premiums without consent!
If you or a family member has insufficient Medisave savings, your immediate family members such as parents or the spouse can help pay for the premiums with their Medisave. The new payer will be informed in writing before any deduction is made, and may review the arrangement at any time.
If you wish to help pay your loved one’s MediShield Life premiums, download the application form here, and send the completed form to CPF Board. CPF Board will update the new payer when the request has been processed.
