Covid charges in private hospitals need to be standardised
This attached is from a private hospital’s lobby in mumbai.
I know this circle takes up healthcare charges and localcircles escalates to Govt to cap prices or fix MRP.
The need of the hour is to standardise price of covid treatment basis hospital facilities rating.
A 5 star hospital may charge 8-10K per night per room but not 32K per night. This is LOOT.
Govt hospitals are in bad bad state. Private hospitals are needed but they cant charge through the nose like this. More so in these times more
Yes,Private Hospitals are looting the public.Govt should come out with guidelines.Also Govt should improve the conditions of Govt/Municipal Hospitals to a reasonable level. more
Our government appears to be toothless in bringing these private hospitals under the preview of its laid down norms and to strictly comply with them. It is necessary to keep the expenses of treatment of the patients of Covid19 within the reach of our common people or otherwise those suffering from the infection with entire family members will leave with no option but to die without treatment in absence of government hospitals. However, one who wants five star facilities in a hospital should be prepared to bear its cost. more
What a shameless comment? One one hand the people do not wear masks, not not observe social distancing, not being careful and contract the virus and expect the Government and Private hospitals to give free or subsidized treatment for the Covid 19 cases. more

I think the Private insurance companies need to work out with these so called 5 Star hospital s. We as a consumer don't want to pay from our pockets. Moreover don't judge a hospital by swanky interiors. There's a lot of infection and disease in every nook and corner of a hospital. more
