KUALA LUMPUR (May 12): My EG Services Bhd (MyEG) announced today the electronic government services provider will begin offering a one-stop portal for employers in Malaysia to manage requirements related to Covid-19 screening for their workforce.

In a statement to Bursa Malaysia today, MyEG said employees, including foreign workers, who are contributors to the Social Security Organisation (Socso) are eligible to have the cost of testing covered by Socso’s Prihatin Screening Programme.

"MyEG’s portal is an option for companies that wish to streamline the process of getting workers tested, providing employers with the necessary tools to register and receive confirmation of the eligibility of their workforce for the Prihatin Screening Programme. At the same time, through a partnership with a panel of Socso registered clinics, MyEG will also arrange for screening to be conducted on-site at employers’ premises by trained medical practitioners adhering fully to Ministry of Health guidelines. For workers not covered by the Prihatin Screening Programme, the cost of testing can be paid out-of-pocket.
