  • 1. USSR/CLOZE 2010 Secondary 4 NA R Name: _______________________ No: ____ Date: ________ Class: __________ KEY Main Instructions: 1. Fill in each blank with a suitable word. 2. Write each answer in the space provided in the passage. Important information: 1. Spelling errors. You receive a ½ mark if the word is a correct fit, but wrongly spelt, e.g. “missery” for “misery” or “sufficent” for “sufficiently”. You receive 0 if the spelling is so bad that the word is unrecognizable by the marker. The marker’s decision is final. 2. Grammatical errors. You receive O if the grammatical form is incorrect, e.g. “construct” for “constructed” or “suppose” for “supposing”. CLOZE 4: Letter of Recommendation: A national dental insurance plan Recently, I had to [1] undergo a yet-to-be-completed root canal treatment which includes a crown on one of my molars. As a subsidised patient of the National Dental Centre, I was [2] quoted / offered / charged a price of between $800 and $1,200 for the entire procedure. This excludes future treatment costs. The [3] waiting time for subsidised patients awaiting root canal treatment is seven months. Use of Medisave is not [4] allowed /applicable / available as this is not a surgical procedure. I was shocked to learn that the entire procedure must be [5] paid/ accounted for in cash. The Ministry of Health (MOH) said previously, in [6] response / reply to public feedback, that it does not allow use of Medisave for procedures such as root canal work and tooth crowns because 'the current Medisave contribution rate has not [7] factored / added / worked inthe funding of such non-surgical dental procedures'. MOH also said that Medisave coverage has been kept largely to hospitalisation needs to [8] keep the contribution rate to the minimum. Greater Medisave coverage will require a higher contribution rate. As Singapore's [9] population / citizenry / grows and ages in the years to come, demand for dental services is set to increase. The challenge is for Singaporeans to be able to afford and have easy [10] access to dental care. Having to wait a long time to receive treatment does not augur [11] well for Singapore's push to be a health-care hub. Using one's Medisave money to pay for dental services is also [12] not the way to go. The solution is for the authorities to come [13] up with a national dental insurance plan. Citizens can pay for this cover with a percentage of their Medisave funds. This plan can be [14] tailored/crafted to be similar to the present MediShield plan. It could be called DentalShield. The authorities may also invite private insurers to add value to DentalShield. The plan can be tailored to be portable. It will encourage more people to [15] visit the dentist regularly.
