What is the Healthier SG plan

Healthier SG programme is a national initiative by the Ministry of Health (MOH) focusing on preventive health. Singaporeans can take proactive steps under the Healthier SG initiative to manage their health, prevent the onset of chronic diseases and have strong support to lead healthier lifestyles.

Healthier SG – a long term health vision and why it is important.

Healthier SG’s strategy is mainly focused on preventive care because as people get older, they are more likely to fall sick and suffer disabilities. The prevalence of chronic diseases increases as you age, and that causes significant health, emotional, financial burden on individuals & families.

But healthy habits and preventive care can help older people to stay active and maintain a good quality of life. For those with diabetes, high blood pressure and high blood cholesterol levels, managing these well will reduce the risks of developing serious health problems like kidney failure and stroke.

By taking part in Healthier SG, it will offer patients:

  • Support to keep healthy and prevent diseases, from a family doctor who knows and understands your history and medical condition, has a trusted relationship with you and can take care of you. 
  • Enhanced subsidies for preventive health.
  • Personalised Health Plan with goals, advice and treatment.
  • Connection to a wide range of healthy lifestyle activities to stay healthy and active.

Benefits of Healthier SG

Free Health Plan Consultation 

  • Under Healthier SG, you will be able to schedule a free consultation with your family doctor who will use the session to create your Health Plan based on your medical history and set goals, advice and treatments in order to guide you to a healthier life.

Personalised Health Plan 

  • Your family doctor at the clinic which you have enrolled with will work with you to develop a personalised health plan. This health plan is tailored according to your health needs and what you need to do in order to live healthier.

Free recommended Health Screenings and Vaccinations

  • Healthier SG focuses on preventive care which can help older people stay active and maintain a good quality of life. For people with chronic diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, going for recommended Health Screenings will also help to reduce risks of developing serious health problems like kidney failure and stroke. 
  • Going for recommended vaccinations such as HPV Vaccination is also a key part of preventive care as it helps to prevent diseases.

Subsidised medication for chronic illnesses

  • CHAS, Merdeka Generation and Pioneer Generation patients with high medication needs can opt for alternative subsidy tier, allowing them to enjoy common chronic drugs from their enrolled Healthier SG Singapore GP clinics at prices comparable to polyclinics.
