How does it work?
Adam, a 28 year-old Singapore Citizen, suffers from slipped discs. A visit to the doctor, which costs him S$100, led to him being admitted to the hospital. He was warded for 4 days in a Class A ward in a public hospital, where the doctor advised him to manage the condition through medication and physiotherapy. The final bill for the hospital stay was S$7,000.
Recovery took a year after Adam was discharged from the hospital. It included post-hospitalisation treatments amounting to S$1,000, and 3 home physiotherapy sessions at S$300 per session in the initial months.
Medical bills totaled S$9,000 for Adam.
