By 31 March 2023, all employers must buy Primary Care Plan (PCP) for their employees which will cover most of the employee’s primary healthcare needs under a fixed scope of services.
Who is eligible:
A PCP is mandatory for Work Permit holders (excluding MDWs) and S Pass holders who:
- Stay in dormitories
- Work in CMP sectors
PCP is optional for Work Permit and S Pass holders who live in the community and work in non-CMP sectors.
Benefits of PCP:
- Provide quality, accessible and affordable primary care to migrant workers
- Support proactive public health surveillance to minimize risks of large outbreaks and work disruption
- Provide peace of mind for both employers and migrant workers
- One statutory medical examination for work pass application or renewal
- Unlimited acute and chronic consultations
- One annual basic health screening
- Telemedicine and medication delivery
- Scheduled transportation to and from dormitories and MOM medical centers. Prioritized for workers who are reporting sick at MOM medical centers. Excludes routine specialist appointments.
- Ambulance or special transport services to other medical facilities, if necessary.
Eligible employees can get the services at:
- 24/7 telemedicine services (FWMOMCare)
- Medical centers
- Designated GP clinics in partnership with Anchor Operators
PCP price range from $108 to $138 per worker annually, payable by monthly instalments.
You must buy PCP for eligible employees from Anchor Operators (AOs) based on where your employee stays.
