(檳城24日訊)財長林冠英說,明年起,B40群體若生病(36種疾病)進入政府醫院並住院接受治療,就可以向政府申請每天50令吉的補貼,一年最多14天即700令吉。

他說,這項政策將由國家銀行從明年1月開始執行,所有申請需在網上進行,沒有紙張表格。國家銀行將在下個月發布有關網站的消息。

涵蓋36種疾病


他說,這項福利原本只涵蓋4種疾病的患者,後來經討論後決定擴大至36種疾病患者,就像市面上的醫藥保單那樣。

他說,B40群體「手停口停」,一旦生病就會影響生活,他們沒有能力負擔醫藥保險,這是聯邦政府為他們提供的醫藥福利。

橡膠底價 稻農補貼增加

林冠英說,橡膠的底價將從2令吉20仙增至2令吉50仙;政府給於稻農的補貼也從每公噸300令吉增至360令吉。

他說,這些都是將在明年開始執行的政策,他提呈明年度財政預算案時已提及,但不獲媒體廣泛報道,所以他希望媒體再次報道,讓人民知道。

他今早出席喬治市文學節後在新聞發布會上發言。出席者有檳首長曹觀友。

Social health insurance scheme for B40 expanded to cover 36 critical illnesses

GEORGE TOWN: The social health insurance scheme for the bottom 40 per cent (B40), which will be rolled out on Jan 1 next year, will provide coverage for 36 critical illnesses.

This is an expansion from the initial four critical illnesses announced in the 2019 Budget.

Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng said under the scheme, those in the B40 group who are hospitalised in government hospitals, could apply to get RM50 daily for a maximum of 14 days or RM700 a year.

「This will be given free to the B40 group and they need not pay for insurance.

This is the first time the government is rolling this out to the B40 group as we know they can’t afford to pay for health insurance.

「It was initially restriced to cover only four critical illness but has since expanded to cover 36 critical illness, just like when one buys the health insurance,」 he told newsmen here today.

He was met at the George Town Literary Festival where he was honoured for founding the festival and lending continuous support of the festival for the past eight years.

Lim was awarded the patron of George Town Literary Festival. Also present was Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow.

Elaborating, Lim said the social health insurance scheme for the B40 would be managed by Bank Negara Malaysia.

「There is no need to fill any forms as everything will be conducted online,」 he added.

He said Bank Negara would launch a website on the social health insurance scheme for the B40 next month, which will enable the target group to get more information about it.

On a separate matter, Lim said in the 2019 Budget, the government had also announced that the floor price for the Rubber Production Incentive (IPG) would be increased from RM2.20 now to RM2.50 beginning next year.

Similarly, he added that the Padi Price Subsidy Scheme (SSHP) rate would also be increased from RM300 a tonne to RM360 a tonne.

「All this is done to help the farmers and smallholders who are facing pressure due to the drop in commodity prices,」 he added.
