MOH should clarify SingHealth polyclinic costing

EMAIL COPIED TO FOLLOWING
(Email is copied to the media, friends, etc.)

Dear PM Lee

I refer to my email to Health Minister Gan dated 20 August 2014.

The ‘full amount’ – cost to SingHealth polyclinic – of 20 tablets of generic paracetamol was $5.29 in 2014.(see image below)

PARACETAMOL POLYCLINIC 2014 SINGHEALTH2
For reasons known only to MOH, the “full amount” of paracetamol was drastically reduced by more than 80% by 2017.
PARACETAMOL POLYCLINIC 2017 SINGHEALTHA

Cost of paracetamol in 2014 and 2017.
PARACETAMOL POLYCLINIC 2014 VS 2017
Questions:
1. Is the “Full Amount” an actual cost to taxpayers?
2. Or is it merely an inflated amount to showcase an overly-generous grant/subsidy given to polyclinic patients?

MOH should also clarify the huge reduction in the “Full Amount” of paracetamol since 2014.

Please reply.

Thank you and have a nice day.

Regards

Phillip Ang
