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?

for all the services however citizen pay much less.

For Singaporeans there are safeguards to ensure everyone can have reasonable care.
non citizen pay more or can choose to have private insurance.
