If about half of the patients are in default in one nursing home, how many in total are in default in Singapore?
How is a family with total income of less than S$1,440 able to afford to pay the 25 per cent balance, which I understand is about S$400 a month, after the subsidy?
So, is it any wonder that so many families are defaulting on their payments?
I would like to suggest that the subsidy for needy patients be reviewed.
Also, how much of the charity donations of S$896 million last year went towards helping needy patients?
