A heartless society

Ever since becoming a Singapore Permanent Resident I am flooded with letters from various Singapore government agencies. Today I received a letter from the Central Provident Fund (CPF) Board informing me that I will soon be covered by MediShield. Reading the information I found this:

"The following expenses are not covered by MediShield and cannot be claimed:
treatment of any illness, disability, injury or any condition arising from or due to the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) virus.

What a heartless society......I am sure my friends who are HIV+ are happy to be covered by a medical insurance system that helps everyone.
