Healthcare: A comparison between the PAP and SDP systems

PAP The total amount the country spent on healthcare in 2012 was about $12 billion. The Government's portion was only $4 billion, or about 33 percent. The rest was paid by the people and the private sector. This places a heavy burden on Singaporeans many of whom cannot afford medical treatment. At the end of 2011, patients owed the Government $110 million in hospital fees. SDP Under the SDP Plan, the Government will assume more responsibility by paying up to 70 percent of the nation's total expenditure on healthcare. This is more in line with other developed economies whose healthcare systems are caring and people-centric. This makes healthcare more affordable especially for those in the lower-income groups. No one will be in debt as a result of being hospitalised, as the poor and unemployed will be subsidised in full.
