Special Insurance Scheme

Foreign Worker Medical
  • $0.00

Employers are required to purchase and maintain minimum medical insurance coverage of S$15,000 per year for each Work Permit or S Pass holder.

This compulsory medical insurance requirement was introduced in tandem with the withdrawal of healthcare subsidies for foreigners in order to help employers manage the hospitalisation and/or surgical expenses of their foreign workers.

The insurance should cover inpatient care and day surgery, including hospital bills for conditions that may not be work related.

The requirement is for basic coverage, but employers are still responsible for any uninsured medical expenses of their foreign workers as according to the work pass conditions.
