If they continue to grow sg population with massive immigration then there will be need for more specialists

So for the sake of your careers doctors better pray and hope for that. Remember to vote wisely.

That poster is obviously non-Singaporean FT la, trying to steal our rice bowls which by the way is no longer iron. If it is to accommodate fellow Singaporean sons and daughters who studied abroad I can understand, but to open the floodgates to IMGs is too much.

If GP refers to a GP who has special interest in Obstetrics they bill the GP code ie $124.25

There is also time modifier CMXC30. If consult goes over 30 min add $31.43

SKLL is for Skill

Codes like ANES is for anaesthesia, E/M is for Emergency etc
It's interesting that a GP can bill more than an OBGYN for the same consult in AB.

I have a friend who joined rmg. Get paid around 12k. No gdfm/mmed yet (he is still doing gdfm course)
Think that is higher than a ops family physician with mmed? (Plus you can locum as well)

Because I saw that SKLL OBGY is only $92.55.
