MOH: WE CANNOT CONTROL HOW PRIVATE HOSPITALS SET THEIR PRICES

Private hospital charges do not fall under the Ministry of Health’s (MOH) purview; private hospitals set their fees independently. According to the Singapore Medical Council’s Ethical Code and Ethical Guidelines, a doctor cannot abuse the doctor-patient relationship for personal gain. This means a doctor shall not let financial considerations imposed by his own practice, investments or financial arrangements influence the objectivity of his clinical judgment in the treatment of his patients.
