As many may know, all Work permit holders (excluding migrant domestic workers) and S Pass holders living in dormitories or work in CMP sectors must be PCP-covered.
All eligible workers must have PCP by 31 March 2023 even if the renewal is after the deadline. However, MOM also strongly encourage employers to purchase PCP for all migrant workers for better protection against unexpected healthcare bills.
What is PCP?
PCP is a plan provides integrated healthcare services for the eligible workers. MOM has introduced this requirement on1 April 2022 as the COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the care and systemic gaps in the availability and accessibility for migrant workers’ healthcare services.
The PCP will not only provide quality, accessible and affordable primary care to migrant workers, it also reduces the cost on the employers’ side when their workers are healthy. This will also minimise another outbreak in the community.
PCP includes the following services:
One statutory medical examination for work pass application or renewal.
Unlimited acute (e.g. flu, fever) and chronic (e.g. hypertension) conditions consultations.
One annual basic health screening.
Telemedicine and medication delivery.
Transportation to and from dormitories and MOM Medical Centres.
Eligible workers can get these services at:
24/7 telemedicine services
Designated GP clinics
For employers with eligible migrant workers, you must complete the purchase of the PCP within 30 days after the work pass is issued or renewed, in accordance with the Employment of Foreign Manpower Act (EFMA). An early purchase of PCP upon receiving the IPA letter or renewal notice for your worker can be made as well.
