Compulsory for foreign workers to have health insurance in Malaysia

The news:

Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai recently announced that health insurance for foreign workers would be made compulsory from Jan 1 as it was costing the government RM18 million a year to treat foreign workers at government hospitals and that the cost was ever increasing.

The annual premium has been set at RM120 per foreign worker.

My comments:
1. Is RM120 per worker enough?
2. Locals then have to compete with the foreign workers for hospital beds... They took our jobs and now the facilities at the hospitals. WAKE UP Malaysian ...!! The country NEEDS you!!!!
