Few hospitals are Completely against the Norms released by the government, Here are fixed high rates for patients normally and if you have any renal diseases or if you are an diabetic patient then you should be ready to get surprised with your bill as these hospitals are doing Business with Treatment.
A 53 years old-man who got admitted to a hospital in Banjara Hills was charged around 20 Lakhs for 23 days, his medical insurance was claimed around 7.5 Lakhs and rest of the amount should be payed from his own Pocket.
I think medication in Private Hospitals is of Gold and diamonds instead of tablets. So that bills have become too expensive.
If you have an doubt and got admitted in a hospital, Your tested samples should be sent to Laboratory, It take minimum of 2 days until report Arrives, So even if the charges of the isolation room is for ₹10,000/- per day and The cost of Covid-19 Test is of ₹6,000/-(As per private Hospitals) Some of other fees and charges would be applicable, Main part is that – the patient should pay for the PPE kits used by Doctors and other staff – One set Cost for ₹4,000 to ₹5,000 According to the price of Private Hospitals, So until the report arrives the charges per day would be around ₹60,000/-
I Personally Visited one of the Branches of Yashoda Hospital and ask the process to get tested. “First you would Undergo some Screening and some of the tests and then if reports differ then you will be referred to get tested. Private Labs which are permitted to conduct Covid-19 test can charge ₹2,200/– per test , The treatment for the infected in private hospitals would be cost as ₹4000/- per day For normal isolation Ward, If in support of ICU without Ventilator is for ₹7,500/- Those who need the support on ventilator it would be ₹9,000/- per day “.
Since the cost of some anti-viral injections is in the range of ₹40,000 ₹50,000, such business treatment can be charged separately said an official. Even after issuing clear Norms Few Of hospitals are Looting the Money from public.
Already 2 Hospitals barred from treating Corona virus patients following several complaints for overcharging for the Treatment of corona virus patients, which are too High compared to the price-cap Government.
Government should Put on a New Committee which would inspect every reports and related prices toward the Test, screening etc, also Issue the report of costs per every single medication which will be used excluding the charges which are mandatory.
So that it may help to question them by showing the Reports issued by the government and also helpful for bring down the Cost of bills.
As World Health Organisation(WHO) gave a statement that Corona will be with us and it would be new normal in the coming months, following this AP’s Chief Minister Y.S Jaganmohan Reddy Garu, Have Included the treatment of Corona virus in Aarogyasri, So that this would be helpful for people who wont able to bare high bills.
One of my friend suggested me an Corona virus family health insurance policy cover plan named “CORONA KAVACH” Which helps you to cover your hospitalisation bills up to 5 lakhs or minimum of some particular amount, I this this would be in help for us in current and further situations as well.
Let us see how Government would take actions against the hospitals which are literally looting the Public. Stay home and stay safe even if you are out please do follow this SMP Sanitizer , Mask and Physical distancing.
These people are doing business treatment which needs to change.
