In yet another determined social media post, Chief of People’s Voice Party, Lim Tean, called out the incumbents on Merdeka Package’subsidy for Life .

The Merdeka Generation Package offers healthcare subsidies to Singaporeans born between 1950–1959. At present, as part of the Merdeka Package, an additional 5% subsidy is given for annual premiums, increasing to 10% after the elderly turn 75 years old.

In a social media post yesterday, Lim Tean wrote, “But don’t be happy because most Singaporeans don’t realise that this coming November, the yearly declining transitional premium subsidies when MediShield Life was introduced four years ago will end. So your premiums are going to shoot up by between 50-100%!”

“Is this not the classic case of giving you a wing but taking the whole chicken back from you?” he continued.
