Clarification of Newborn Exclusion From Medishield

MOH posted a reply to a letter written in the Straits Times forum about a couple’s newborn being rejected from Medishield.

According to MOH, it was not a case of rejection but more of a deferment as the baby was still undergoing medical treatment at the point of application. The couple can apply again for the Medishield after they have obtained the relevant medical reports although the existing condition could probably be excluded.

While it is good to get a clarification from MOH, one wonders how many other people who had been deferred might have fallen under the radar if they had not gone on to seek a proper clarification like what the couple had done.
