Currently, they pay charges levied on local first class patients, which are much lower, compared to fees in the private sector. Among the first class charges imposed on them since June last year are (third class charges in brackets):

# Outpatient treatment - RM15(RM1);

# Normal childbirth delivery - RM500 (RM10); and

# Caesarean section - RM1,000 (about RM100)

Charges for normal childbirth delivery under MMA schedule is RM800 while caesarean section costs RM2,250.
