Health Ministry looking into private hospital charges, says Liow

KUALA LUMPUR: The Health Ministry is addressing complaints of private hospitals charging patients with private insurance more than those paying on their own.

Liow said that this was among the complaints that he had received on private hospitals, adding that he would meet private hospitals, insurance companies and others on the matter.
