Heart implant at subsidized rate

A part time teacher told me that his teenage daughter had a heart implant recently. She was treated in a subsidized ward. The orignal bill was $10,000 but, after subsidy, the bill was reduced to $5,000. The major portion was paid by Medishield and the remainder by Medisave. The cash outlay was quite small.

He gave this advice on how to get treated as a subsidized patient. The daughter went to a polyclinic and obtained a referral to a private hospital but as a subsidized patient. He wanted to share this tip with other people in a similar situation. If you need medical treatment as a subsidized patient, go to a polyclinic and get a referral.
