In addition, the reality on the rising cost of living added to the financial hardships of many people. Another known fact is that Singapore population is aging, and therefore, there is more urgency to help alleviate the cost of living, especially on healthcare cost.

"It's getting tougher to save these days; and it getting harder to find considerable savings from just one area" said Raymond Yeo, who is a frequent contributor to the media. A tip is to take advantage of more affordable healthcare services just across the border.
