Biggest Govt spender: MOH (1st), MOD (2nd)

4 in 10 households earning $1,000 couldn't pay living expenses (37)
The Ministry with the highest total expenditure is the Ministry of Health (MOH), followed by the Ministry of Defence (MOD)
However, there may arguably, be a fundamental difference – the MOD has no cash inflows, only cash outflows, whereas the MOH has both inflows and outflows
From a cashflow perspective, may still not be spending any money on Healthcare (excluding Covid-19 related expenditure)?
From a cashflow perspective, does “annual Medisave contributions ($11+b) + Medisave accounts’ % ($4.4+b (4+% on $116b total balances 2021 Q3))”, exceed “Government operating healthcare expenditure ($9.9b FY2019) + MediShield $1.53b/CareShield Life premiums $137.2m (2020 Q4 – 2021 Q3) + Medical expenses/private insurance/ElderShield premiums’ withdrawals ($2.61b)”?
