Medical Costs

As of April 2007, private doctors in Singapore are free to set their own fees, instead of referring to guidelines (see below) drawn up by the Singapore Medical Association (SMA), which has been in place since 1987. This has been mooted as a good move as it endorses the concept of free competition.

Consultation fees are normally dependent on a few factors namely:

  • The seniority of the doctor
  • The duration of the consultation
  • The complication of the disease
