Medisave Maternity Package


What is it?

Parents can use their Medisave for:

  • Delivery expenses – up to $450 for each day in the hospital
  • Pre-delivery medical expenses such as consultations and ultrasound – up to $900
  • Additional surgical withdrawal limit for delivery – $750 for vaginal delivery or $2,150 for caesarean delivery


Am I eligible?

  • All single mothers with Medisave can apply but not single fathers.
  • You can tap on the Medisave of your own parents if help is needed.
  • However, it may be possible for you and the biological father to appeal with the hospital that is handling the birth. This is assessed on case-by-case basis.


How do I apply?

  • Present the bills incurred for pre-delivery medical care to the hospital where the baby was delivered.
  • The hospital will submit these bills, together with the delivery expenses, for Medisave claims.
