The Ministry of Health (MOH) revealaed the benchmarks on professional fees for patients who opt to do surgical procedures at private hospitals.

The benchmark fees for 222 common surgical procedures, including Caesarean section, heart bypass and knee replacement, are published on the MOH website. They make up more than 85% surgical procedures done in private hospitals on Singaporeans in 2017.

Apart from looking at fees charged by private doctors for more than 200 surgical procedures in 2017, committee chairman Dr Lim Yean Teng said other indicators such as inflation were also taken into consideration.
