Usage of CPF Medisave in Malaysia Hospitals and Medical Centers

Greater than 1 year since our first posting, the Singapore Government acted fast and at Feb 2010, the Ministry of Health (MOH) declared formally that Singaporeans will have the ability to use CPF Medisave for payment in 12 hospitals/medical centres in Malaysia starting 1st March 2010. The closest of those 12 hospitals/medical centers to Singapore is that the Regency Specialist Hospital situated in Johor Bahru (Regency is only an hour drive from Singapore or just 25 minutes from the Johor Bahru CIQ).

Together with the medical bills in Malaysian hospitals expected to be a 20%-35% cheaper in comparison to Singapore hospitals, this is good news for Singapore citizens who now have an option in handling escalating health care expenses. To top this up, these 12 hospitals and medical centers in Malaysia are actually owned by two health care group at Singapore: Health Management International (HMI) and Parkway Holdings. Expect a specific standard of health health-care and facilities to be provided.

For example, Regency's patient care centers and medical equipment are similar to Singapore hospitals. It's the most recent state of the art diagnostic and medical equipment such as a 64 multi-slice Computerized Tomographic ("CT") Scanner and 1.5 Tesla Magnetic Resonance Imager ("MRI") from General Electric ("GE"). In addition, its new Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory ("Cath Lab") increases the comprehensive range of cardiac care treatments for individuals experiencing acute coronary symptoms in need of cardiac catheterization, angioplasty, stent, balloon or pacemaker implantation.

The list below shows the 12 medical facilities and hospitals now accepted by the Ministry of Health for use of CPF Medisave.
