GPs invited to join Madani Medical Scheme pilot, says Dr Zaliha

PUTRAJAYA: Private general practitioners (GPs) in 10 selected districts are invited to participate in the pilot programme of the Madani Medical Scheme, says Dr Zaliha Mustafa.

Health Minister Dr Zaliha Mustafa said the districts were Gombak, Hulu Langat, Klang and Petaling in Selangor; Kuala Lumpur; Kinta (Perak); Timur Laut (Penang); Johor Bahru (Johor); Kota Kinabalu (Sabah) and Kuching (Sarawak).

"The Health Ministry invites GPs in these locations to register as Madani Medical Scheme panel clinics starting today," she said in a statement Friday (June 2).

Registration can be made through the ProtectHealth website at or by calling 03-8687 2525.

The Madani Medical Scheme, which will start on June 15, is a free health service for recipients of the Sumbangan Tunai Rahmah (STR) cash aid.

The scheme was announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim when tabling the 2023 Budget in February as one of the government's initiatives to reduce congestion and patient waiting time at its health facilities.

Dr Zaliha said ProtectHealth would organise online briefing and training sessions for registered GPs. - Bernama
