The patient is harmed in this way
Private hospitals cannot bill more than the rate fixed by the government. Therefore, there is a separate bill for the cost of medicines.

The Mediclaim company does not approve more than the package and the patient has to pay the additional bill spent in the treatment. The hospital gets upset like this
Hospital management says that the government has fixed the same treatment for all patients. The cost of bed, room, nursing may be the same for all patients according to the category, but it is not necessary to give the same medicine to all. The MD of a major hospital told that five patients are admitted in ICU, some of them are more serious, some less, some will be given high dose and some will be given low dose. Because of this there is a difference in price. This causes trouble.
this can be the solution
Experts say that drugs should be separated from capping. The price of medicine should be controlled. The drug controller can do this. The rates of the medicine should be fixed according to the category. Due to the reduction in the rates of medicines, the bills of those who get treatment from Mediclaim can also be made inside the package.
