Dear A.S.S. Editor,
I went to NUH recently for my followup treatment for my diabetes after the speech by our PM LHL.
After the consultation I was given my supscriptions to collect from the pharmacy in NUH itself. Upon given the medicines I saw the amount stated there to which I was supposed to pay was $72/+ but when I go to the cashier’s counter and told them I wanted to pay using my medisave a/c.
I was told to hold on for them to arrange to charge to my medisave a/c. I am fully shocked and surprised when they came back and told me thar the amount was $86/+ and I have to pay the difference of $12/+ in cash.
I then question the cashier why the difference in the amount, and his answer was a I don’t know. I had to pay up with no choice.
I hope the NUH managment and the MOH can give us Senior Citizens who have had no more income.
Why are you forcing us to pay additional for the medicines given to us?
