KUALA LUMPUR: The Social Security Organisation (Socso) today denied there had been any collaboration with MY E.G Services Bhd (MYEG) pertaining to the implementation of its Prihatin Screening Programme (PSP),
Socso in a statement today said applications for the programme can only be made through its portal at https://prihatin.perkeso.gov.my.
“Conditions and screening procedures are also available on that portal, Socso’s website at www.perkeso.gov.my as well as Socso’s official social media accounts.
“COVID-19 screening is free for employees and employers registered with Socso,” the statement said.
The denial comes after MYEG issued a statement yesterday saying it is working with Socso’s panel clinics to arrange for screenings to be conducted on-site at the employers’ premises by trained medical practitioners adhering fully to the Health Ministry’s guidelines, besides offering a one-stop portal to employers in Malaysia to manage requirements related to COVID-19 screening.
Currently, employers registered as Socso’s contributors, including foreign workers, may get their COVID-19 testing cost covered under PSP.
