Question by Lover: How does the health care system work in Singapore?
Is health care in Singapore free like in the UK and other European countries? Or do people have to pay to get check ups, have surgery, use the hospital, etc?
What if somebody is poor and they can’t afford to pay for health care?
And what happens if somebody is living in Singapore but is not a Singaporean citizen?
Answer by baba
In Singapore there is no free health care. We pay
for all the services however citizen pay much less.
All working singaporean will have an government run insurance
(the citizen themselves contribute to the cost of insurtainsurance will ensure citizen will not overly burden by too much medical cost.
For Singaporeans there are safeguards to ensure everyone can have reasonable care.
non citizen pay more or can choose to have private insurance.
I am a Singaporean
