From 18 February 2020, the Ministry of Health is activating the Public Health Preparedness Clinic (PHPC) scheme. This will enable primary care clinics to better respond to the current COVID-2019 threat.
All 4 clinics under Mutual Healthcare are part of the PHPC scheme. Singapore residents diagnosed with respiratory illnesses will receive a special subsidy from the government.
Singapore citizens and permanent residents will pay a flat subsidised rate of $10 for their consultation and treatment of the condition at PHPCs. Pioneer Generation and Merdeka Generation seniors pay $5.
We urge all patients who have respiratory symptoms (such as cough, runny nose, sneezing) to wear a mask when they visit a doctor or head out to the community.
We will stand with our patients and continue to provide care for all our patients in this difficult time.
