SINGAPORE — A dental surgeon who duped the Central Provident Fund (CPF) Board into disbursing nearly $400,000 in bogus MediSave claims pleaded guilty to his crimes on Monday (15 April).


Daniel Liew Yaoxiang, 37, admitted to 30 out of 280 charges including conspiring to forge documents, and conspiring to cheat the CPF Board.


Liew, a former employee of The Smile Division Dental Group (TSD), had committed the offences over some three years and received half of each claim that was disbursed.


Three other parties were involved in the fraud: TSD managing director Cecil Goh Chin Chye, 48; TSD practice manager Yeo Meow Koon, 47; and TSD dentist Steven Ang Kiam Hau, 43. Goh and Yeo have yet to be dealt with, while Ang was jailed two-and-a-half-years last year.


Scheme cooked up by fellow dentist


Ang first conceived of the scheme sometime in 2009 while working at TSD’s Lucky Plaza branch.


According to the statement of facts, when Goh learnt of Ang’s ruse, he implemented it at a number of TSD clinics and encouraged the dentists there to get onboard as well.


When Liew joined the company in early 2011, he also jumped on the bandwagon and made fraudulent claims through the Hougang, Clementi and Choa Chu Kang TSD clinics where he worked.


Patients consulted at the clinics involved would be given a rough estimate of their treatment costs. They would then be given financial advice based on their MediSave account balance and be offered the option of paying for their treatments entirely through their MediSave.

Why resort to fraud?

Now with CHAS subsidy just do-first-then-tell all the heavily subsidised treatments and also can hike all fees. Still can say cheap, cheap to the patients.

Really, the govt should do more to prevent doctors from mis-earning all the subsidies. 5 5 5
Stop trying to calm the storm. Calm yourself, the storm will pass.

Although he actually provided the services, not that he provide no service and charge the client, in the eye of law this not allowed, essentially a day surgery , u split into few, so that u can circumvent daily limit ...
This is no different from nkf former ceo flew first class , which has same price as sia business class ...in the eyes of law this is not ok
Especially, when r in profession of doctor, teacher, enforcement , charity etc...because these are profession of helping peoples by nature
On surface it does seems to be very ok, nothing wrong.
I wonder so many ft amid outsourcing wave, IT contract, corruption among ft is totally unheard of ....
It can't be they so good , so good on.hiding they chiak...
U are offspring your tech hub to a country with serious corruption problem, and technology is your lifeline...
I can assure you, one day , these peoples will hold you ransom, 霸工..this happened in Indonesia before in factory, u don't feel it because is just a factory, has no impact to Singapore, but if is atm machine computer in India...who knows they can program withdrawal from there without one knowing
