Dear ASS Editors,
Recently, MOH issued a press release regarding having clinics issuing itemised billing for CHAS and it was reported in the Straits Times.
However, I went to see my dentist recently and was informed that the government has sneakily reduced the CHAS/PG benefits given to all Singaporeans. Actually expected after getting a big mandate from the recent election.
Previously there was no limit on how many consultations, fillings, extractions, crowns or root canal treatment. The govt will subside what you need. Also they will subside 1 set of dentures a year.
This has been changed. They will now only subsidise 6 fillings, 4 extractions, 2 consultations, 4 crowns and 2 root canal treatments. Now denture is 1 every 3 years.
This drastic reduction is subsidy was totally not reported at all by the mainstream media. I hope you can help educate the ignorant public, thinking that they govt will look after their healthcare needs.
