Generally, the bill prescribed at discharge will be the final bill. Occasionally however, late charges for items used on the day of discharge may not be included. If this is the case, the hospital will post a final bill indicating the balance on the account.
Amounts received in excess of the total bill will be refunded depending on the initial payment mode. Refunds made via credit cards will be settled within 7 working days. However, cash refunds amounting to more than RM 500 will be done via cheque, within 14 working days.
