The PAP Seniors Group (PAP.SG) committee has released its first set of policy recommendations to the Government for inclusion under the Pioneer Generation Package and in its formulation of Medishield Life.
The PAP.SG's paper had drawn key inputs from views and suggestions of over 100 participants, young and old, about their hopes and expectations in this Package for seniors during its inaugural dialogue held on 28 Jan 2014 at NTUC Centre. The session arrived at strong consensus that Healthcare should have top priority in the Package because healthcare costs are recurrent and are a big cause of concern for our seniors.
The Seniors' Group calls for more financial support in healthcare in Pioneer Generation Package.
Themed "Our Seniors, Our Asset", the session was held to galvanise ideas to shape policies for better representation of seniors' views.
The PAP must continue to provide Singapore with leadership and take the country forward: Lee Hsien Loong.
