Medisave can be used starting from the birth of your first child onwards. For your fifth and subsequent children however, Medisave can only be used if the combined Medisave balance of you and your spouse is at least $15,000 at the time of the delivery. This is to ensure that you have sufficient Medisave for future hospitalisation needs, especially after retirement.

 

Medisave may be used at both public and private hospitals. You can claim your pre-delivery charges from Medisave with these 3 simple steps.

 

Step 1: Keep all your receipts from your pre-delivery visits (includes pre-natal consultations, ultrasound scans, tests and medications)!

Step 2: Present these receipts at the hospital where your baby is delivered.

Step 3: The hospital will submit these bills, together with the delivery expenses, for Medisave claims under the Medisave Maternity Package.
