What is the Primary Care Plan (PCP)

You must buy a Primary Care Plan (PCP) for your eligible workers. The PCP provides quality, accessible and affordable primary care to workers.

What is PCP

The PCP aims to provide eligible workers with accessible and affordable healthcare and is part of a larger Primary Healthcare System (PHS) established by MOM.

PCP benefits employers and workers by:

  • Supporting proactive public health surveillance to minimise risks of large outbreaks and work disruption
  • Providing peace of mind and protection against unexpected healthcare bills

PCP is optional for all other Work Permit (excluding MDWs) or S Pass holders. However, we strongly encourage you to buy PCP for them for better protection.

When to buy the PCP

You must buy the PCP before you can get your worker's Work Permit or S Pass issued or renewed.

You are strongly advised to buy the PCP once you receive the in-principle approval letter or work pass renewal notice for your worker.

Once you have bought the PCP, make a declaration via eServices:
