A Straits Times report by Salma Khalik reported that fees have increased or are slated to increase soon in most public hospitals and some polyclinics.
Fees at specialist clinics for subsidised patients at four major public hospitals - Singapore General Hospital (SGH), Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH), National University Hospital (NUH) and Kandang Kerbau Hospital (KKH) - have gone up to $24/25 from $20/21 previously. Fees at Alexandra Hospital (AH) and Changi General Hospital (CGH) remains the same at $20.
Meanwhile, many government polyclinics will also see standard consultation fees increase from the flat $8 to as high as $8.80. Fees for children and elderly patients will go from $4 to up to $4.60.
