Mean Testing - The beginning
Brenda Tan Dun Lin wrote to MyPaper on how mean testing is affecting her. She said she belonged to a category that 'doesn't look that bad' yet the hardest hit. With the high cost of medical treatment, only the very rich will be spared. No amount of mean testing can help the 'doesn't look that bad' group. There must be a serious effort to bring down exorbitant hospital bills in hospitals funded by public money. Can't call them govt or public hospitals anymore as they are privatised, I think. With hospital bills in the thousands of dollars a month, my god, how many got such a fat bank account to pay for them? And mean testing is to make the 'doesn't look that bad' group to pay more. What will be the consequences? Ok good, everyone will have the chance to empty their Medisave account.
