Complements MediShield Life to provide more protection


Provides as charged coverage at public or private hospitals


Covers pre and post hospitalisation treatment charges


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.

MyShield plan is an additional cover that integrates and complements the benefits of MediShield Life. This provides you with higher and wider coverage for the medical expenses incurred.
