Are employers required to bear the pregnancy-related medical costs incurred by their S Pass holders?

From 1 April 2018, employers are no longer required to bear the pregnancy-related medical costs incurred by their S Pass holders. This is to achieve a better balance of the medical obligations between employers and S Pass holders.

However for S Pass holders covered under the Employment Act, employers must still:

  • Bear the medical consultation fees, which refers to the component of the medical bill that states "consultation" or "consultation fee".
  • Provide maternity benefits.
