Medisave use for mammograms & colonoscopies

Medisave use for mammograms & colonoscopies

SINGAPORE : With effect from July 1, patients can use their Medisave for screening mammograms and colonoscopies. The Ministry of Health said this would make screening tests more affordable and accessible to Singaporeans. It said the change would benefit around 450,000 women for mammogram screening and one million Singaporeans for colonoscopy screening. Patients can withdraw up to S$300 from their Medisave account each year to offset the cost of their mammograms. On average, mammograms cost about S$100. Subsidised mammograms are available for Singapore citizens and permanent residents at participating BreastScreen Singapore centres. The Medisave withdrawal limit for colonoscopy screening will be pegged at the prevailing withdrawal limit for day surgery procedures.
