What is Full Paying Patient (FPP) Services?

FPP is a private healthcare service offered through selected hospitals in Malaysia whereby patients need to bear the cost of treatment on their own.

Implementation objectives

  • Reduce “problem” of private hospitals referring clients to government hospitals
  • Profit sharing given to doctor treating patient to offer competitive compensation
  • Reduce government medical treatment subsidy to citizens

 

FPP Advantages

  • Patient’s choice of doctor/specialist/medical officer (min 3 years experience)
  • Scheduled (presumably faster) treatment/procedure date & times
  • Better room facilities with executive / 1st class / VIP room choices
  • Separate check-in counter (depending on hospital)
  • Food based on 1st class or equivalent food at the hospital

 

FPP Disadvantages

  • Costs (which are stated to be competitively priced) are fully paid by patient (or insurance)
  • Treatment is scheduled after the doctors official working hours (kira OT lar)
  • Some patients have complained that queues are long & wait times almost as long as subsidized patients

 

FPP Eligibility

  • Malaysian or non-Malaysian paying on own
  • Government employees choosing for FPP
  • Corporate/private employees with medical expenditure under FPP agreed to be borne by company

 

FPP Services

  • Outpatient treatment
  • Daily treatment
  • Admission treatment
  • Consultation
  • Therapy services
  • Surgery & procedures

 

FPP Admission Process

  • Sign & register bringing IC/birth cert/passport/visa
  • Guarantee letter from company or insurer (if applicable)
  • Deposit payment (as informed by hospital – est. min 3k or 50% total costs)
  • Reference letter (if applicable)

Overall

FPP services may be good to get affordable paid healthcare especially if you are looking for a particular doctor/treatment that is only available (or the best choice) at a government hospital with less of the common issues & grievances faced with govt hospitals. This may include patients referred by private hospitals to the government hospital under FPP.

 

FAQ

Q: Does this mean that I need to pay for all govt hospital services? No more RM1 treatment?

No. Subsidized services are still subsidized. Only affected are FPP services.

Official response from MoH

 

Q: Can I claim government hospitalization benefit from my insurance if admitted under FPP?

Believed to be no. We have yet to receive confirmation from insurers.

    Azreena boleh terus “walk-in” atau mendapatkan maklumat di Kaunter FPP. Alternative email atau call direct ke hospital.

    Hi Mashita, congrats on your coming bundle of joy. There should be no restrictions for FPP as long as the hospital has doctor and room availability.

    If for delivery purpose, I can expect this is not a ‘first come first serve basis’ right?

    Hi ummu, no it’s not on a first come first serve basis. You will need to check though if the hospital has availability (similar with a private hospital)

    I called Hospital Sultanah Nur Zahirah Terengganu to ask about FPP scheme, however I was told that the scheme has not been rolled out by the hospital yet. Is it true? I plan to deliver in HSNZ.. any info about this?

    Hi Fatin, Good that you called up Hospital Sultanah Nur Zahirah, Terengganu to confirm on the FPP status. We have updated the list to state that HSNZ is pending implementation.
    There is currently no full official listing of FPP info. One way is to check is to search the MOH website for the particular hospital’s FPP info & to get the hospital’s contact info to check.
