Health Renewal FAQs

We understand the importance of reconnecting with you in-person to support your employees’ wellbeing and empower them to make informed decisions about their health, while effectively managing costs. We are excited to partner with you to promote meaningful and sustainable lifestyle change through educational health and wellness activities, including seminars, wellness challenges, and participation in chronic disease management and preventive care programmes that appeal to a variety of lifestyles.

This year’s premium calculations remain the same as in previous years. Your total premium will be inclusive of the Standard Premium Rate (SPR) and your Supplementary Premium, as follows:
