Health Care Voucher Division

The Health Care Voucher Division* was set up in 2008 to plan, implement and administer the Elderly Health Care Voucher Scheme which was launched in 2009 to provide subsidies for eligible elderly to receive private primary healthcare services that best suit their needs. The work of the Division includes promoting the Scheme to the elderly and healthcare service providers in the private sector to encourage their participation; processing the enrolment applications of healthcare service providers and their voucher claims; and implementing monitoring measures to ensure the proper use of vouchers.
