Every patient is different and their needs are different.  As a result the cost of treatment varies from one to another.  In a broad sense the costs fall under three categories:

  • Hospital fees.
  • Doctor’s charges.
  • Other costs that you may incur.

Hospital fees: Includes room charges, admission charges and other charges.

Room charges: Include the following services:

  • 24-hour nursing care.
  • All inpatient meals and coffee/teas/snacks served at the normal hours.
  • Medical supplies.
  • Use of medical/surgical equipment.
  • Access to 24-hour emergency care.
  • Toiletries.
  • General housekeeping.
  • Room facilities.

Admission charges: These are minimal admission charges towards hospital stationary and administrative expenses.

Other charges: This includes theater fees (if any), X-Rays, laboratory charges, medicines, physiotherapy services, dressings etc which are charged separately.

Doctor’s charges: The fees charged by the doctors, specialists/consultants, and anesthetists would be separate from that of the hospital charges.  The charges of the consultants and visiting doctors are not under our control.

Miscellaneous costs:  These include:

  • Extra meals.
  • Relative accommodation. For children less than 12 years of age one parent can stay free of charge.
  • Internet, telephone calls and faxes:  Charged per minute depending on place and time.
  • Beverages like soft drinks and mineral water.
  • Any damage to hospital utilities.
  • Room service for snacks outside normal hours.
  • Special nursing.
