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.

Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said that the charges should be the same for both.

“We hope this will stop because it will increase insurance premiums,” he said at the Private Hospitals Board of Visitors meeting.

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.
