The clinics, which are all under the Access Medical group, had made numerous non-compliant Chas claims such as claims for patient visits or chronic conditions with no relevant supporting documentation. These were revealed following audits by the MOH on the Chas claims.

MOH added it has referred this case to the Police, and will also be referring specific doctors involved to the Singapore Medical Council for further investigation.

Access Medical is a private medical group which is reportedly founded by Dr Lim Yong Chin in 2012.
