The Primary Care Partnership Scheme (PCPS) aims to provide needy elderly and disabled Singaporeans with better access to primary healthcare by bringing affordable services closer to such residents. From 1 Jan 2009, PCPS will be extended to cover treatment of three chronic conditions: Diabetes, Hypertension and Lipid Disorders, in addition to acute medical conditions and basic dental services. We hope that this will help GPs to provide holistic care for their PCPS-eligible patients, in line with the vision of "One Family Physician for every Singaporean".
 
 
Overview of Primary Care Partnership Scheme
The aim of the Primary Care Partnership Scheme (PCPS) is to provide needy elderly and/or disabled Singaporeans with better access to primary healthcare by bringing affordable services closer to such residents. Under the PCPS, the Ministry of Health (MOH) engages private general practitioners (GPs) and dentists to provide common outpatient medical and dental treatment to the needy elderly and/or disabled at subsidised charges.

Only Community Medical Benefit (CMB) cardholders or Public Assistance (PA) scheme cardholders are eligible for treatment under the PCPS. Public Assistance (PA) scheme cardholders are eligible for treatment under the PCPS.

From 1 Jan 2009, the existing PCPS that provides coverage for the treatment of common acute conditions and basic dental services will be extended to cover chronic conditions as well. The aim of this extension is to provide subsidised evidence-based chronic disease treatment for needy elderly and/or disabled Singaporeans at a primary care facility near their home. With this extension, patients eligible for treatment under the PCPS will be able to visit the same GP for both their acute and chronic conditions.

The treatment of chronic diseases under the PCPS will be aligned with the Chronic Disease Management Programme (CDMP) framework and the chronic diseases that will be included in this extension are Diabetes Mellitus, Hypertension and Lipid disorders. The existing coverage of acute conditions and dental procedures under the PCPS will remain unchanged with this extension.
