Employee Medicare Insurance

  • Foreign Worker Medical Insurance (FWMI) is a mandatory medical insurance coverage for foreign employees who are on “Work Permit” and “S-Pass”. The business owner must purchase a minimum lump sum of S$15,000 cover for their foreign worker’s hospitalisation and surgical medical expenses.


  • Employee Medicare Insurance covers more than just the mandatory requirements. Depending on the policy you purchase, it can also cover repatriation expenses, special grant if the death of a worker occurs during the treatment of an injury or illness / after discharge from the hospital, and provides personal accident cover for accidents which occur in Singapore.
