Elderly Health Care Vouchers

150.      The Government launched the three-year Elderly Health Care Voucher Pilot Scheme in January 2009. Under the Pilot Scheme, elderly citizens aged 70 or above are each offered health care vouchers of $250 annually to subsidise their use of private primary health care services. Having completed the interim review of the Pilot Scheme, we propose to extend the Pilot Scheme for another three years, double the value of health care vouchers to $500 per person per year, and strengthen the monitoring of voucher utilisation under the Pilot Scheme. I will allocate $1 billion to implement this proposal. The Secretary for Food and Health will announce the review report and detailed proposal in due course.
