  • 2. What is the average amount that Singaporeans spend on pre-delivery expenses? On average, how much would a Singaporean couple see their out of pocket (OOP) costs reduced, by the policy change?

    The amount of pre-delivery expenses can vary significantly, depending on the type of care that the couple chooses and whether it is subsidised or not. Basic subsidised pre-delivery care in KKH, including consultations, investigations and scans, costs about $900. This can be fully covered by the enhanced Medisave Maternity Package.
