Macao’s next round of medical e-vouchers for permanent residents will start on 1 May, the government’s Executive Council has announced.
The e-vouchers worth MOP 600 (US$75) will be valid for two years, until 30 April 2023. The government expects to spend MOP 428 million on the latest round of medical e-vouchers, reported the Macau Post Daily.
The e-vouchers are only valid for consultations and treatments offered by health professionals in the private sector not subsidised by the government. They are also fully or partly transferable to their beneficiaries’ spouse, parents and children who are permanent residents.
The medical voucher scheme was launched in 2009 by the government to “promote family health and co-operation between the public and private health sectors,” the announcement pointed out.
