Using Medisave in Malaysian Hospitals

Singaporeans, Singapore PRs and their immediate families can use Medisave to pay for private care at 12 approved hospitals and medical centres in Malaysia. This policy had been effective since March 2010.

The care at these approved hospitals and centres costs about half of what it does in Singapore.

Medisave accounts can be used only for day surgery or in-hospital admissions, and is subject to the same withdrawal limits as in Singapore.

The approved facilities are owned by two Singapore health-care groups. The two groups are Health Management International (HMI) and Parkway Holdings.

At the moment, only HMI has facilities in Johor.

Patients who opt for approved Malaysian hospitals must be referred by the Singapore groups’ referral centres first.

The referral centres must provide a pre-admission clinical assessment that the eligible patient needs the treatment. The doctor at the referral centre is also responsible for any follow-up care the patient might need. The referral centres will also help prepare the patient records and Medisave documents for the patients to use in Malaysia.

Where to go for treatment in Johor

Referral centre in Singapore:
Balestier Clinic and Health Screening Centre

Facility in Johor:
Regency Specialist Hospital (Johor Baru)
1, Jalan Suria, Bandar Seri Alam, Masai
Johor, 81750, Malaysia

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
