Key Highlights
The largest category in the personal accident and health segment was health insurance, which accounted for a 59.1% share of the segments total gross written premiums in 2014.

The segments growth was supported by the countrys economic expansion, a rapidly growing older population, an increase in outbound travelers and favorable legislation.

In addition to underwriting profits, Singaporean personal accident and health insurance insurers are focusing on generating returns on investments, aided by sustainable economic growth.

Singapore has a sophisticated healthcare system, but the current national medical saving schemes such as Medisave, Medifund and Medishield cannot meet the countrys rising healthcare requirements, as these schemes only cover a limited range of diseases and meet low-value medical expenses.

On June 5, 2014, the MediShield Life Review Committee proposed changes to the existing government-run Medishield plan. The proposal introduces a new universal healthcare cover: MediShield Life. Under the proposed changes, the maxim age limit of 90 years for coverage will be removed and lifetime coverage will be introduced.
