High medical fees

Here is a letter from the public about the shocking revelations on high medical fees. How can Singapore become so bad, and doctors can charge so astronomical fees?  

This is why the Singapareans have to vote for a change at the forthcoming general election. It is about the future of our country and our children.

There are many who would argue that Dr Susan Lim should not be faulted. There are willing buyers !
Sounds familiar ? It is the decades of PAP- philosophy that breeds such attitudes.
The current HDB flats pricing is one such outcomes. Charge as much as the market can bear. They forgot that these are "PUBLIC" housings, but so what. They have the mandate, no ?

Many people did not realised that the current medical science is heading to the dead end. Why, if this doctor can rally save her life for sure do't say RM26 million RM260 MILLION WAS NOT for a royal familiy to pay. But what have end up the true is the patient died. So please have a second tought about the medical science of today. It can not save life.

All high earners will now learn from this:

Draft agreements on fees that has legal weight and include clause for non public disclosure.

Perhaps they should also attend courses on conflict management and negotiation skills.

useful for pre and post operation.

S$24m over 7 months is about S$3.5m per month. Just on one patient? Come on. You can start a medical group or even insurance company with that. Prudential Singapore converted from branch to subdsidiary with S$25m paid-up capital in 1990. Life is precious and invaluable, yes. But this is obviously atrocious overcharging.

What kind of consultation and nursing time, medication and facility can cost S$3.5m per month?
