1. Healthier SG (the “Programme”) is a multi-year transformation strategy by the Ministry of Health (“MOH”) to shift the focus of Singapore’s healthcare system beyond caring for individuals who are sick, to proactively preventing individuals from falling ill.
2. The Programme aims to empower Singapore Citizens and Singapore Permanent Residents who enrol to the Programme (each, an “Enrolee”) to become healthier and improve their quality of life through preventive care, anchored by a strong patient-doctor relationship with a participating primary care provider, and supported by the relevant healthcare cluster. Enrolees may also be granted enhanced access to relevant lifestyle and preventive health programmes. The features of the Programme may be adjusted from time to time to improve the experience and health outcomes for Enrolees.
3. Enrolees are bound by and shall comply with the provisions set out below (the “Enrolment Terms”).

Enrolment and Benefits
6. Under the Programme, an Enrolee will be required to enrol with a Healthier SG Clinic or a polyclinic. In these Enrolment Terms, the Healthier SG Clinic or polyclinic that an Enrolee is enrolled with from time to time shall be referred to as his “Clinic”. At the time of enrolment under the Programme, an Enrolee shall specify the Healthier SG Clinic or polyclinic which he wishes to enrol with. The Enrolee shall be enrolled with that Healthier SG Clinic or polyclinic unless and until (a) the Enrolee applies for a change of his Clinic and MOH approves of such application, or (b) MOH requires the Enrolee to change his Clinic, e.g. if the Clinic has ceased operations. If MOH requires an Enrolee to change his Clinic, that Enrolee shall specify to MOH another Healthier SG Clinic or polyclinic that he would like to enrol with. If MOH approves the Enrolee to enrol with that other Healthier SG Clinic or polyclinic, then from the date of such approval, the Enrolee shall be enrolled with that other Healthier SG Clinic or polyclinic.

(3) after the Initial Period, change his Clinic only once in each calendar year; or
(4) after his first visit to the Clinic, in the period commencing on the date after his first visit to the Clinic and ending on 31 December of that calendar year (both dates inclusive), if that Enrolee enrolled onto the Programme from 2025 onwards, change his Clinic once.
8. The benefits which an Enrolee may receive are:
