Medisave for mental illnesses

>> Saturday, September 26, 2009

The Straits Times.  Sep 26, 2009.
By April Chong

FROM next Thursday, patients will be able to use their Medisave for outpatient treatment of two more chronic diseases: schizophrenia and major depression.

Patients with these mental illnesses can make use of their compulsory health savings to pay for consultation, medication and relevant tests at public hospitals, polyclinics and participating clinics.
The list of diseases under the chronic disease management programme, which was started in 2006, currently comprises diabetes, high blood pressure, lipid disorders, stroke, asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

The latest additions will reduce out-of-pocket expenses for patients and make treatment more accessible, said a health ministry spokesman.

As with the other chronic diseases, general practitioners can also apply to be under the programme.
