Medical charges in Japan

In Japan, the Ministry of Health negotiates the fees with hospitals and doctors for various types of treatment every year. The negotiated fees apply throughout the country. The hospitals are, by law, operated as non-profit entities.

This is an excellent system to control medical cost and still provide good quality.

We have to follow the practice of Japan.

Totally agreed. Healthcare cost keeps rising in Singapore. Our government should work on controlling the cost
