The MediSave Maternity Package is a package that allows MediSave to be used to:
Each MediSave Maternity Package has a different MediSave Withdrawal Limit, which depends on the delivery procedure (e.g. caesarean or vaginal delivery).
If you do not wish to claim for pre-delivery expenses, you can still use your MediSave savings for the delivery procedure and daily hospital charges. Each delivery procedure has a different withdrawal limit. The amount of MediSave that can be used cannot exceed the actual bill and the withdrawal limit.
From 24 March 2016, pre-delivery expenses claimable limit has increased from $450 up to $900.
To claim pre-delivery charges from MediSave, parents need to submit the bills incurred for pre-delivery medical care to the hospital where baby was delivered. The hospital will submit these bills, together with the delivery expenses, for MediSave claims under the MediSave Maternity Package.
You will be able to claim your MediSave for pre-delivery expenses after you have delivered.
For obstetrics cases from 1 November 2016, Medisave can be used to pay bills incurred in delivery, regardless of the birth order.
Mrs Tan gave birth via vaginal delivery at SGH. She stayed in class B2 ward for 1 day before discharge and does not have any third party insurance plan. The total bill is $2,737.40. She is able to claim using her MediSave $2,100.
