deductible ("excess" in car insurance lingo) to increase. can, but what is the trade-off. coveraqe increased? max amt to be used for medishield increased? serious changes to the policy and waiting for details.

"To keep the scheme's focus on large bills, the deductibles - portions of the bill that patients have to pay before MediShield payouts kick in - for B2 and C Class bills will be increased by S$500. The deductible for Class B2 bills will be S$2,000, and S$1,500 for Class C bills."

To meet with rising costs and stagnant wages.. shouldn't the deductibles be decreased to help citizens?

What is the Govt doing..? Discouraging pple from seeking medical treatment by demanding higher cash layout?
