Changes to improve elder shield proposed

The Straits Times 4 april 2007

Not long ago the government finally decided to improve the elder shield , this is a scheme that provides assistance to senior citizens by reducing their medical fees which normaly cost quite a large sum of money.

Now the government has proposed a more elaborate scheme that helps to further reduce medical costs for senior citizens.

I think that this is a very good move by the government , as it shows that the government is still very well in line with the citizens , and at the same time the government is still constantly trying to improve the living standards of its people.

As some of the elderly are less capable to pay for thwir medical expenses, the elder shield will be in place to "protect" them financially. Thus overall this is a smooth move by the government.
