Khaw Boon Wan's Policy to spend Medisave in Malaysia is rubbish

I will be supportive for a PROPER policy to allow Singaporeans to spend their Medisave abroad to get health care for themselves or dependents, however the recent policy by famiLEE LEEgime's Khaw Boon Wan Minister for Health ought to be strongly opposed.

For Singaporeans I can see at least in 3 ways they could require to spend their Medisave abroad in order to safe their own lives:

  1. When they got accident / injuries / sudden ailments while traveling or studying or working overseas
  2. When they need a certain medical treatment which is unavailable in Singapore, but available overseas, e.g. cancer treatment by Chinese TCM in specialized PRC hospitals 肿瘤专科医院。
  3. When they can no longer afford the expensive medical expenses in Singapore, but they are suffering and dying while their Medisave still can afford them a medical services overseas where cost is much lower
Medisave of famiLEE LEEgime had in all these past decades been a very badly monopolized system that channels only and strictly towards famiLEE LEEgime's own medical businesses, while peasants suffered and died while being ripped off. These victims includes many late senior citizens who contributed very much to this country and loved and cared for us the Singaporeans who live under famiLEE LEEgime.

I can safely say that Malaysian New Citizen Minister Khaw's policy to spend our Medisave in Malaysia, can NEVER fit into #1 nor #2 above, and can hardly fit into #3. WHY MALAYSIA in the very 1st place? Because it is Mr. COW's hometown? Why not Thailand where their hospitals are as good and as low in cost? Why not so many other countries?

It would become very ugly if some one raised suspicious speculations that there are linkage of interest between Medisave policy makers or high officials with certain Selected and Approved Facilities in Malaysia.

Khaw Boon Wan had since GE2006 wanted to dumb Singaporeans into Cheaper Nursing Homes in Johore & Batam, which had been opposed by angry Singaporeans.

If the objectives of policy is only to safe cost, then why not just setup Special Medical Zones within Singapore with lower cost similar to Free Trade Zones? Why not bring these more cost competitive foreign medical services into Singapore instead?

Why transport our sick and dying Singaporeans to Malaysia and then if they died there, it will be a great hassle to bring them back for funeral, this is not funny, but recently a Singaporean died in JB by accident and the casket shipped over to Singapore from JB is too large to fit into Mandai Crematorium cremation furnace, this caught the family by great nasty surprise and in most awkward bind.
