MediShield Life is a basic insurance scheme, designed to give adequate coverage for stays at Class B2 or C wards in public hospitals. However, there are certain medical scenarios where patients would need to pay cash (as a top-up to MediShield Life) or use their Medisave account for their hospital stay or medical treatment.
