More apply for subsidised GP care under revised scheme

Interest in a scheme which gives older, less well-off Singaporeans access to general practitioners (GPs) at polyclinic rates has taken a leap forward since its qualifying criteria were eased in August.

The Primary Care Partnership Scheme (PCPS) now gets an average of 2,000 applicants a month, up from about 1,000 before.

These figures came from Minister of State for Health Amy Khor on Wednesday on the sidelines of one of her weekly visits to the homes of her constituents in Bukit Batok.

With the change to the qualifying criteria to kick in on Jan 15, individuals aged 40 and above living in a household with an income of no more than $1,500 per head are eligible to apply for this subsidised medical care.
