Good news for senior citizens..

PUTRAJAYA: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has announced that senior citizens (aged 60 and above) will be exempted from paying the RM5 registration charge for specialist outpatient treatment at all government clinics and hospitals from May 1.

Najib said this was in addition to the exemption from paying the RM1 registration charge at all government hospitals and clinics, including the 1Malaysia clinics that was extended to them this year.

Besides this, he announced that they would also be entitled to a 50% discount for admission to third-class wards.

“With the reduction, the maximum charge at the third-class ward will be RM250 per admission,” he said when launching the Federal Territory Islamic Religious Council’s 1Malaysia low risk maternity centre at Precinct 8 here yesterday.
