他是一名身家百万的部长。他只支付了8元,是的,只是区区的8元,他在心脏绕道手术的医疗过程中享受到顶端的A级病房待遇,主流媒体将之大事喧嚷。身为一名卫生部长,我猜想你会在你的医院里得到不一样的招待,主流媒体也是如此另眼相看。我的意思是,没有人会和自已的上司过不去?

身为卫生部长,他为何要向世界宣告医疗痼疾和潜伏心脏病是可以如此的便宜?

他是不是要告诉我们:

1、新加坡的医疗费是便宜的。

2、公积金医疗储蓄是一项好计划?

3,公积金医疗保险可以带来的神奇魔术效用?

4、每个人都应该购实更多的医疗保险以弥补公积金医疗保险的不足,无论是否能够负担的起?

5、他是一名财务计划专家?

6、他非常的富有,有能力支付公积金医疗保险保金之外的更多保金。

7、他,是否和吴作栋一样,尝试让更多的贫穷新加坡人去购实保险,以避免这群人因为不幸事故的发生如意外,疾病和丧事时去骚扰政府部门要求协助?

这神奇的8元!象牙之塔确实是蒙蔽了许多权贵们的眼睛。为何要大事渲染进行这项令人惊心动魄的心脏绕道手术是可以如何节省费用或者说手术费是如此的便宜?在获得了第二回的活命机会之后,我想一个人应该会变得更有责任心以及感恩之心。从此之后,会以更具同情和关怀心态去生活,能够体恤别人感受,尤其是对病人,生话潦倒,穷人和其他不幸的人群。

这群高高在上的权贵知道多少?或者他们是拒绝面对应该懂得的事?

1、他是否知道许多新加坡人都不是象他们一般的富有,一般的聪明,或者一般的幸运?

2、他是否知道许多没有钱去私人诊所看病的穷人要在政府诊所开门之前就必须提早去排队轮候?

3、他是否知道有些人必须等候几个星期,甚至于几个月才有机会(通过政府诊所)去见专科医生求诊。

4、他是否知道病人必须支付额外费用以动用公积金医疗储蓄去支付长期性疾病的用药。要支付一笔行政费才能够去动用公积金医疗储蓄,对不幸的病人而言是最残酷的笑话。这不就如同支付敲诈者去领取打开银行储蓄箱的钥匙?

5、他是否知道这社会上有些人是手停口停。如果你连肚子都没有办法填饱,还谈什么保险?在大事谈论可以省下的费用和保险公司的高额赔款之前,要想想,要细心的思考那随后高涨的保费。我们都很厌倦,非常厌恶,讨厌他们在没有得到我们同意之前就不断的操弄我们的公积金。

6、他是否知道什么是吃饱不要忘记饥饿年头,或者还记得在进入冰冷的手术室前说的那一声再见?

7、他是否知道炫耀可能赢得一些无谓奉承,但有教养的年青人痛恨吹牛?

我如果是一名卫生部长,我不会告诉我的国人在医院进行手术是如何的便宜,我会告诉他们:

1、要健康,要保持健康。

2、小心饮食,要有保健的心思。

3、避免久坐不动的生活方式,要经常运动以维持身心健康。

4、避免压力紧张不要盲目追求金钱,房子,信用卡,汽车和赌场。

5、学习使得自已更有信心,创新和能干,更重要的是学会知足,不要成为竞争老鼠世界里的一只老鼠,去贪恋权势,为了增加自已与同流合污之辈的财富去吸干别人的血汗钱。

6、要知道我们所能给于我们的挚爱的最大礼物是保持健康。

不会的,我不会告诉他们生病是不太花钱的事,相反的,我会鼓励他们不要生病,要过一个健康的生活。应该做的事是鼓励保健和避免疾病,不是如何精明的只花区区的8元就可以进行一宗心脏绕道手术!

这不是疯了吗,这种作法不就是在嘲弄健康这一回事。

那么,可以投我一票吗?

I did not have a $8 Bypass but can vote for me?
Thursday, October 28, 2010

He’s a millionaire Minister. He pays only $8, yes, a measly $8 and he gets to stay in a top of the table “A” Class Ward when he went for his Coronary Artery Bypass Graft surgery and the mainstream media made a meal of it. Being the Health Minister, I guess you get different treatment in your Hospital or even from mainstream media. I mean who would want to mess around with Boss?

As a Health Minister, why on earth would he want to tell the whole world of how cheap it is to get serviced for a dreaded disease and potential heart attack?

Is he telling us:

1. How affordable hospital charges are in Singapore?
2. How great CPF Medisave is?
3. The magic that CPF Medishield can do?
4. Everybody must buy much more health insurance than what Medishield provides or more than one can afford?
5. He is an expert in his financial planning?
6. He is so rich he can afford to pay premiums over and above CPF Medishield?
7. He, like GCT, is trying to get more poor Singaporeans insured so that poorer folks won’t have to disturb the Government (MYCS?) for help when things unpleasant like accident, sickness or bereavement happens?

Holy $8! The ivory tower has indeed blinded so many in power. Why on earth brag on how much you saved or how cheap it is to go through a traumatic experience like CABG? Having been given a second chance at life, I would have thought that one would have been humbled and be grateful for a second shot at life. One would live a life of empathy and caring and be sensitive to the sensitivities of others. especially the sick, the down and out, the poor and less fortunate.

What do they know from so high up? Or is it their refusal to know?

1. Does he know that most Singaporean are not as rich or as clever or as lucky as he?
2. Does he know of those who are too poor to see a neighborhood GP and have to queue for hours to see a doctor at Polyclinic long before the Polyclinic opens its doors for business?
3. Does he know some have to wait for weeks even months before they can have an appointment (through Polyclinic) to see a Specialist about their suspected serious illness?
4. Does he know about the additional cost patients have to cough up to use their Medisave to pay for medicines for chronic diseases. To pay an Admin Fee to use one’s own Medisave is the most cruel joke on hapless patients. It’s just like paying an extortioner to have the key to your own piggy bank?
5. Does he know of those who can only survive from hand to mouth. If you cannot afford food to fill your tummy, what insurance are we talking about? Before getting swell headed by his own savings and get carried away about higher payout by insurance companies, think, please think carefully of the hike in premiums. We are tired, very sick and tired of them messing around with our CPF without our permission.
6. Does he know about “Chiak pa, mai bway kee yau” = “When your tummy is full, do not forget the hungry years” or “Remember the goodbyes that were said before entering the cold operating theatre”?
7. Does he know that showing off may win some senseless toadies but decent blokes abhor braggarts?

If I were a Health Minister, I would not tell my countrymen and women of how cheap it is to pay for hospital procedures. I would ask them:

1. To be healthy, to stay healthy.
2. To eat carefully with good health in mind.
3. To avoid sedentary lifestyle and do regular exercise to stay fit.
4. To avoid stress by not mindlessly chasing after Cash, Condo, Credit Card, Car and Casino.
5. To learn to be Confident, Creative, Competent and most important to be Content and not to be rats in this crazy rat race where the creed is to ‘fix and buy’ power, pay yourself and yours obscenely well and suck the rest dry.
6. To understand that the greatest gift we can give those we love is to stay healthy.

No, I would not tell them how cheap it is to get sick but I’d encourage them to avoid sickness by living a healthy lifestyle. It should be health promotion and sickness prevention and not about how money-smart one is to pay only $8 for a CABG surgery!

It’s crazy. It makes a mockery of what health is about.

So, can vote for me?
