Expensive hospital bill for an angioplasty

Preciously, it is good that people talks about their problem so that others can benefit from it!

SINGAPORE - Retired businessman Steven Choo, 60, underwent angioplasty at the Singapore General Hospital (SGH) to unclog blood vessels in his legs last November. On the day he was discharged from hospital, he received a shock: His medical bill came up to $14,501, but Medisave and MediShield would cover only $900 and $810, respectively, or $1,710 combined. SGH also told him he would not get his $6,620 deposit back, and that he still owed it $5,381.

Six months later, the problem has been resolved but it has left Mr Choo irate. He said: "If I did not fight for it, where would I get the money from?"

Mr Choo added that he hopes that others would not have to be put through the same ordeal.

Preciously, if people don't stand up for their rights, the system just makan (eat) away the people's money.
