How much does angiogram cost in PPUM?
My mum underwent a heart surgery in PPUM mid of year 2022.
Early of the year, my mum had a chest pain (mild heart attack) when she was working in the office.
At the drop of a hat, she put down everything on hand a drove to PPUM.
The doctor said that based on what he seen, my mom might needs a bypass surgery.
Angiography alone cost RM600.00
Yes. Six hundred ringgit only.
2. Total Cost
My mom underwent angiography, which reveals that no blockage hence there’s no further procedure such as angioplasty with stents and bypass.
Besides the RM600, PPUMP charges RM210 per night in ICW (Interventional Cardiology Ward), three night costs RM630. The room fits only one patient. She had the whole room to herself for three nights, and complaint about the freezing aircond every few hours. It is no wonder when I came to discharge her and mentioned her name, the nurses went “ohhhh, XXX”. It’s either they found my mom cute or annoying.
We heard from friends a patient discharged ICW with final bill around RM8,500. We weren’t sure what procedures were involved, so, limited informations. For stents PPUMP charges each stent with a fix price.
3. Deposit required
She collected refund the following week, not upon discharge because it was a Saturday. Refund office closes on weekend.
4. Service provided
Bring your own tooth brush, toiletries, blanket, and thermos.
That’s what my mom would suggest.
They did not supply extra blanket, they ran low on supplies.
About my mom:
Debbie Teng. She eats an apple a day, keep the doctors at bay. She works in the same company for the last 40 years, visited UH every month for various check up for the last 20 years. A very persistent person I’ll say. Hobbies are travelling the world, taking photos, Korean drama. Her major weakness is sense of direction.
