Actually I don’t blame them with a system that is so flimsy and full of holes that a herd of elephants could waltz through. How not to want to take advantage of a scheme asking to be taken advantage of, you ask me lah? But in Parliament some doctor did not think so and did not think the problem is so big and so serious. Seah Kian Peng cannot tahan and was heard saying it is big money, big public money. And it is only the tip of the iceberg. Not his exact words but something like that.
When asked to enforce the medical and dental clinics to itemize the bills, Lam Pin Min was reluctant until an angry auntie blew up. ‘Why is it so difficult, given so many feedback on overcharging?’ Dr Lam, the current Minister of State for Health then replied that the MOH is ‘seriously considering making it compulsory’. ‘Seriously considering’ only mah. To do or not to do still dunno. Maybe auntie should shout at the top of her voice to be heard. We need more fierce aunties in Parliament to get something serious done. Auntie Bee Wah should call on the support of uncles like Seah Kian Peng to make sure things are not forgotten and swept under the carpet. Oh, now I remember the exact words Seah Kian Peng said, ‘These are serious monies that are going out, taxpayers’ monies.’ Did MOH think so and agree with him? This part not reported in the media.
You people out there, you think this Chas cheating thing is serious enough or not? Say leh, must say then they would say got feedback from the people. If not they may think not serious enough and the not so straight medical and dental clinics would continue to be very happy with this Chas scheme. Maybe they will set up a COI to study study first then make the final decision, to itemize or not to itemize.
Being doctors and dentists also chiat lat. Rental so high, how to cover cost? This Chas scheme is really a gift from God. The Chas card holders and pioneer generations would be swarming the clinics for free treatments. Who cares about itemized bills or no need bills, free ok leow. This is the best system so far. Win win for everyone.
