Persons classified as medical fund Special Account contributors, due to fund rules regarding such matters as pre-existing ailments, have previously received benefits at reduced levels. The Government has now decided that the medical Special Account system should be extended along the same lines as the recent extension of the hospital Special Account system. This means that any discrimination against persons such as those who suffer pre-existing or long-term illnesses will be entirely eliminated; all contributors will receive the same medical benefits for the same medical service.
