    I can afford the bill but I don't expect to pay that much at a polyclinic.
    i heard malaysian only need to pay 2 RM at polyclinics there.

    10 times cheaper.

    What is the income tax there? GST? VAT?
    In the industry we see a good trend to overhaul the entire IT landscape in healthcare sector, the RM2 will not last for long.

    if you want to troll, troll with intelligence.

    what Octarine said is true. the M'sian government can't sustain itself by throwing money away carelessly without planning.

    so, you want to pay more tax and GST that could go into the hundreds, or just pay about $60 a year to see a doctor in the polyclinics.

    Feel free to move there then if you think that's a good option. There is a bloody good reason why private hospitals and clinics are flourishing there, and it has nothing to do with the nation's affluence.
