Subsidies for Dialysis Patients

Contributor Pauline Tan commented that subsidies for elderly should not be based on family income. She also called for more subsidies to be made available for dialysis patients. 

The Ministry of Health has responded to the feedback with the following reply: 

Dear Pauline, thank you for your feedback. The Government provides Medisave top-ups for lower-income and elderly Singaporeans through schemes such as CHAS, GST Voucher scheme, and Pioneer Generation Package. Patients who need to undergo dialysis treatment will be able to get a payout from MediShield Life.
