MORE TO BENEFIT FROM FREE ADMISSION AT GOVT HOSPITALS

PETALING JAYA: Parents of serving civil servants will, for the first time, be entitled to free ward admissions at government hospitals.
Ward charges will also be waived for government retirees, civil servants and qualified immediate family members.
Public Service Department (PSD) director-general Tan Sri Ismail Adam said the directive would take effect from April 1, and that some 450,000 government retirees would benefit from the new perk.
“The Government has decided to abolish ward charges imposed on officers and retirees of the civil service, their family members and parents when seeking treatment at government hospitals,” he said in his latest circular.
However, Ismail said the abolition of ward charges would not affect the current ward qualification, which was based on grade levels or the last grade held.
He said those who wanted to be admitted to a higher-class ward than their entitlement would have to pay the public rate and deposit for that particular ward.
Current rules state that officers and those who had retired from public service, their parents and family members were required to pay ward fees according to the fixed rate.
Cuepacs president Omar Osman thanked the Government for waiving the ward charges.
“It is comforting to those still in service to know that they will be taken care of by the Government after retirement,” he said yesterday.
Omar also welcomed the move to include parents among the free ward beneficiaries, but said it should include parents of retirees as well.
