FINANCIAL HELP/ASSISTANCE IN THALASSEMIA MAJOR PATIENTS

Posted by Goh Chun Hui on August 27, 2010 at 12:00 PM



As you might know, all of my medical bills for Thalassemia treatment are covered by Medifund (Hope fund/Health Endowment Fund) except for my blood transfusion every month. Which is paid by my mum Medisave. The reason I don't have any medisave is that you will have to have a regular full time job in order to have. The medifund actually covered all my necessary medications, doctor visit, blood test and screening. That actually do help me a lot as I don't have much income. I am working part-time 5-6 hours every day and hourly pay basis.In order to be subsidized by medifund, they will have to review on your finanical status. Some example are looking into are your salary,household income, bank saving, all the necessary expenses you spend it on. Whether you have any money left after every month of your job income. If there's, you may not be 100% covered by medifund. They will determine how much they're paying and how much you will have to paid. That's basically it for this blog post, I will see you later :)

Of course not, only citizen of Singapore can apply for subsidized treatement if they really can't afford. These Patients in Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok you mention should try applying in your own country, normally under the current hospital they're having there medical treatement.

Apply for governement help in your country, since the doctor suggest your child to undergoes stem sell operation, you should also inform that you can't afford the expensive procedure, your doctor should guide you on where you can get help.
