KUALA LUMPUR, May 13 — The Social Security Organisation (Socso) said today that it is not working with MyEG Services Berhad on its coronavirus screening programme for workers.

Socso said registration for its Prihatin Screening Programme (PSP) can only be done through its portal at prihatin.perkeso.gov.my.

“These Covid-19 tests are provided for free to workers and employers registered with Socso,” the social security fund said in a statement.

MyEG said yesterday in a statement that it would offer a one-stop portal to companies that want to register with Socso’s PSP.

“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,” MyEG said.

The e-government services provider claimed that workers will receive a QR colour code on a mobile app upon completing coronavirus screening, with the digital certificate recognised by the Department of Labour as proof of testing.
