i would like to freedback on the mefiasheild premium. I thin the premium should be at a higher rate at younger stage not the other way round. When we r young,we are able to pay the higher premium as we are at he peak of earning power. When i saw the premium table shown that when we are at old age still need to pay at such high premium rate is tought and no sense at all. Firstlu, cpf and mediasheild doesnot not cover every claim of the medical,such as general clinic claims, regular check up and etc Please think ehen you are at old age, you are not working, you need to pay daily expenses, medical bills and this huge mediashield premium,is it tough? Why ministry of health NEVER think of the other way to adjust the payment of premium? o
OR why never think of to use cpf acoount member to contribute 5 or 10 from each of cpf mber account every month to subsidary the old age group. I believe this will be a huge amount and should be able to help tjis categary group of people. everybody will be enjoy the benefits as we will old at one day.
Hope Minstry or govt can use or come with more practical way to cope with higher cost of medical bills and cist of living. Gorn should not just keep on thiking increase the premium. Please think f better if solution.
