Hospital charges – Malaysia, Singapore, US

Medical fees may be a drain on household income if any member of the family falls sick.
Besides long term medication costs, one of the big portion of medical fees will be hospital charge.
Malaysia hospital charges
Malaysia’s government hospital charges (various types of medical fees and dental fees, for class 1, 2, 3; refer to form A to G)
Malaysia’s Ministry of Health website
I wonder whether there is similar compilation on medical fees in private hospital.

Singapore hospital charges
Singapore’s medical charges (different types of wards, surgery, different procedures)
Information about different hospitals, volume, average length of stay, 50th percentile bill size, 90th percentile bill size are included.
Singapore’s Ministry of Health website

US medical procedure charges
US medical cost by principal procedure from a health insurance website
The data above are older data.


  1. It looks US hospital have more comprehensive principal procedure compared to Singapore, and the last is Malaysia. Malaysia got a lot of catch-up to do.

  2. Hi Min,

    Thanks for visiting my blog.
    For the link on M'sia medical cost, it is only for government hospital. I couldn't find the website which compiles M'sia private hospital fees.

    I couldn't really judge the comprehensiveness of procedures based on the websites as they may have lumped procedures into categories. I think in reality your deduction should be right.

    Feel free to add more info abt medical cost if you have any.. Thanks. :-)

  3. My cousin recommended this blog and she was totally right keep up the fantastic work!
