Visiting the Doctor


The Government has introduced the Pioneer Generation Package which will help Pioneers with their healthcare costs for life.

My mum meets the criteria as stated, which is Born on or before 31 December 1949, aged 65 and above in 2014, so she was eligible for the Pioneer Generation Package.

Recently, my mum health has took a turn, and she's the type who dislike to go to the doctor till yesterday morning, something "happen" and she called up her younger Brother, her younger Brother wife has manage to persuade her to go to the doctor. So her younger Brother wife came and together with my mum and her younger brother wife, we bring her to the doctor.  At the doorstep of the clinic and when it's my mum's turn to see the doctor, she was a bit hesitating to go in and her younger brother wife mange to "bluff" her to go in.


The doctor did blood test and took her urine for test.  The result will be out in 3 to 5 days and the clinic will called when the result is out.

Finger crossed.

As from what I understand, for Consultation, Pioneer Generation Card, they are entitled to $28.50 subsidy.  As for those test, I'm not too sure whether if there are any subsidy, at first, I thought the bill will be a shock, till when payment time, the staff collected $38 from me, then I know that there is subsidy.  So to say, the subsidy is $71.50 for the Laboratory Test.

When back home, my mum was grumbling that the medical bill, 100 plus, so expensive, so I have to sweet talk, by telling her, u have Pioneer Generation Card, there is subsidy, the balance, the clinic will get from Government, since Government introduced the Pioneer Generation Package.

  6. Hope everything is well with your mom and the test result will show nothing serious. And it is good that the government gives subsidy for seniors to lessen the financial burden.
