The Citizens’ Healthcare Coalition (CHC), together with the Federation of Private Medical Practitioners’ Associations, Malaysia (FPMPAM), denounced the health ministry’s 1Care initiative to implement this national insurance-based system to fund healthcare.
“We should all support the CHC on this. The goverment has shown that they do not care about the rakyat and keep coming up with scams every now and then to benefit their crony and steal more money from the rakyat.
What happens to those who do not have a job, where will they go for healthcare.
What about the poor and aged. The government wants us to pay 10% of our salary per month for this insurance. According to what the government wants to do is assign the patient to only 1 doctor and the patient will not be able to see another doctor. On top of that the patient will only be able to see the doctor 6 times a year. So imagine if you are earning RM2,000, RM200 will be deducted every month which totals RM2,400, divide this by 6 times, it comes to RM400 per visit. This is madness. Even private hospitals charge less for each visit,” commented FAIRNESSFORALL in Malaysiakini today.
