In many hospitals, the charges are shown separately under different heads. However, it is observed that the major portion of most of the hospitals' bills pertain to cost of medicines, which is not verifiable in usual course and easy to dupe. more

The government has already capped the rates, However, spliting the bill is a good suggestion. more
Every now and then we read in the newspapers that prices of medicines and medical appliances have been reduced. Yet, the sellers find newer ways of hiking prices. Someone should open their eyes and monitor the situations properly. more
Ha.. !!!!this is a big racket linked with insurance firms, doctors, labs, ambulance ( accident victims converted to Donors) even minor muscle cramps are treated as surgery once they knew the injured is having medi-claim not only that they split the billing to the insured value and claim and also another 1 or 2 lakhs from he patients analyzing the patients family back ground by the counselling team of the hospital , Doctors are target fixed (like marketing target for other retail or business)to earn 50 times minimum their salary every month.
