Health Care Stories: Singapore

In Singapore health care is good. We have a system called CPF (Central Provident Fund) and Medishield, where the government takes a portion of your salary and gets your employer to pay for an additional amount, which will go to this fund. This personal fund will be used should you require medical attention. The Singapore government further subsidizes the medical fee although that would vary based on your salary. It's quite "socialist" here. But it works well, and we Singaporeans have been receiving good health care attention in general.
