Singapore Healthcare System very good for Pioneer & Merdeka Generations

Real-life examples: An uncle of mine (who is the Merdeka Generation), he went for a heart operation but he only needed to pay $100 plus in cash for such an important operation, most of the operation costs are covered by Medisave.

My father (who is the Pioneer Generation), he has cataract and his eye drops only costs 20 cents and his cataract operation only costs $4.00 in cash (more than $1000 was deducted from his Medisave account)

What I want to say is that only little cash are involved which S'pore Govt is helping to lower the healthcare costs of the elderlies.

You can have Pioneer Generation and Merdeka Generation packages which benefit those in these 2 groups but what is most important is the ability to use most of your funds in your Medisave account . Reply

Do not confuse Medisave and MediShield life. MediShield life is hospital insurance funded by the Govt. Each of us pay a yearly premium. It is very helpful to lower income grp and those who do not have other hospital insurance plans. Hospital bills are usually covered by MediShield life (if B2 & C class) and the balance by medisave (your own cpf savings) or cash. Reply

“Little cash” is also your own money. And deduction from your Medisave account is still your money. Any deduction from this account will mean you have less in your savings. The biggest question is what will happen if you don’t have enough money in your Medisave account? Reply
