Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam has announced that the government will soon make announcements on more help for older Singaporeans with their hospital and outpatient costs. He also said that Singapore must look after its senior citizens, who worked hard to build the country. There will also be more help to the older Singaporeans, especially for healthcare costs -- hospital, polyclinic, nursing homes, all the aspects of healthcare costs."
I think that now most of the elderly have financial problems, they do not have enough money to pay for medical needs. Hence it is good that the government will lend more help to senior citizens who worked hard in the past by paying for part of their hospital and outpatient costs.
