MOH should not inflate polyclinic consultation fee, large government subsidy non existent

Dear PM Lee

Further to my email dated Jan 31, I hope MOH could clarify the cost/"full amount" of polyclinic consultation fee of about $48. Please take note that consultation fee of $20 plus 2 medications at a neighbourhood private GP cost only $44.45, ie without any subsidy. (see image blow)

Have costs been inflated by MOH to give the illusion of a large subsidy?

Please reply.

Thank you and have a nice day.

Macau’s handling of viral outbreak puts PAP to shame

After first confirmed case
Macau –
20 million masks distributed from national stockpile 1 day later.
Singapore –
5 million masks distributed from national stockpile shortly; 5.2 million masks from 8 to 16 days later (1 Feb to 9 Feb).

Population
Macau – 667,000, ie 30 masks per person
Singapore – 5,700,000, 2 masks per person

Wuhan virus: PAP should quickly address shortage of masks issue, cease all propaganda

It’s blatantly clear there’s insufficient masks in our national stockpile.

Factually:

– Government released 5 million masks to retailers.
– Singapore population: 5.7 million.

These will last only a few days at most.

Factually:
– Government will release 5.2 million masks to 1.3 million households.
– Resident population: 4.03 million

These will last a couple of days at most.

MOH has claimed that our national stockpile has sufficient masks to last as least 6 months.

A conservative estimate of 3 million/day needed during a serious viral outbreak, there should be 540 million masks in our national stockpile.

3 million X 6 months X 30 days = 540 million masks

If we have 540 million masks, why would MOH release only 10.2 million masks, knowing full well that they could last only a few days?

Why is the government telling healthy Singaporeans not to take preventive measures by not wearing masks?

The government should quickly address the issue of insufficient masks before the outbreak worsens.

Does MOH engage in fictitious costing?

(Please note that this email is copied to mainstream media, online media, WP, SDP, friends ….)

Dear PM Lee

I refer to my email to Health Minister Gan Kim Yong dated 20 August 2014, 6 years ago. For reasons known only to senior management at MOH, Minister Gan was unable to reply to my queries.

One of my queries pertained to polyclinic GP consultation ‘full amount’.

The ‘full amount’, ie cost to MOH, in 2014 was $38.97. (see image below) This is of course ridiculous, considering neighbourhood private GP rates are much lower; more than 50% at some clinics.

Did MOH engage in fictitious costing?

Healthcare costs have been inflated by MOH arbitrarily?

Since 2014, MOH has been inflating the ‘full amount’ of polyclinic consultation fee, almost every year. By 2019, it was inflated to $48.13, a whopping increase of 23% in 5 years.

However, neighbourhood GP consultation rates have remained unchanged, or increased marginally.

Obvious to an idiot, the ‘full amount’ of polyclinic GP consultation fee could not be $48.13.

Needless to say, the subsidy of $36.13 is … ‘fake’.

Of concern is the ridiculously-high ‘full amount’ of $48.13 consultation fee, ie it is a cost to taxpayers.

Questions:
1. How did MOH arrive at $48.13 when private GP rates are about 50% lower?
2. Since $48.13 is not paid to polyclinic GPs, who are the real beneficiaries?

MOH should clarify.

Thank you and have a nice day.
