Currupt CathlabMy father had angioplasty done in breachcandy In 2014.I think hospital have intentionally left lot of scope for corruption by not making angioplasty packages like many other hospital. So doctors can rip you off patients after working out their financial capacity. All patients go out with different bills even though most use stent of same range. All staff from reception and billing seems to be aware of all this practices as few of them kept enquiring about stent prices. Also Cathlab technicians receive cheques from stent distributors openly. In my case Doctor charged me rs 20000 more than what was initially agreed and final bill was nearly rs 50000 more than what was initially estimated. I could have saved at least 60-70000 rs if I would have went to Bombay or Hinduja hospital where the angioplasty packages starts from 65000 which includes everything except stent prices. In breachcandy I paid rs 210000 excluding stent prizes.I have now realised that all major hospital in mumbai have developed packages with includes doctors fee, cathlab charges, bed charges, all stuff used in cathalab only leaving out stent and ballons. Many hospitals starting packages are rs 65-85000 whereas I paid rs 80000 doctors fee in breach candy.Today we talk about corruption in govt sector but how one can address same in private sector.
