Free medical check-up for all civil servants aged 40

KUALA LUMPUR: The Government has decided to extend the medical examination benefit to civil servants aged 40 and above including those from the support group. 

The examination is not mandatory but those on permanent service are encouraged to go for it as part of government efforts to ensure civil servants maintain a certain level of health. 

The conditions and procedures for such an examination are contained in a Feb 13 circular signed by Public Service Department director-general Tan Sri Jamaluddin Ahmad Damanhuri. 

Cuepacs welcomed the decision to extend the benefit to all civil servants.  

Previously, it was available only to those in the superscale, managerial and professional groups. 

“This means that close to 600,000 civil servants, including those in the police, judicial and education services can have the examination free,” Cuepacs president Datuk N. Siva Subramaniam told Bernama. 

According to the circular, the examination would cover physical examination, laboratory tests (glucose, blood and lipid serum), dental checks and other tests as prescribed by the attending medical officer. 

The examination could be made at government health clinics, the Armed Forces Hospital or teaching hospitals under the purview of the Health Ministry. 

Civil servants who wish to go for the examination should apply on prescribed forms through their respective head of department. 

Cuepacs was confident that civil servants would take advantage of the examination to detect diseases early and seek treatment, said Siva Subramaniam.
