People without access to liquid cash and health insurance need not postpone surgery procedures or visits to the doctor for a check-up anymore. In response to the government’s cashless drive, Patni Healthcare’s Currae Hospital will now be providing treatments to all patients regardless of liquid cash or health insurance.
In an alliance with Bajaj & Aarogyam Finance, Currae Hospital will be providing the EMI payment option for surgeries and treatments. The hospital has introduced its Happy EMI Scheme to enable treatments without processing fees and interest.
Specialties covered under this cashless scheme include birthing, gynaecological surgeries, infertility, digestive disorders, gastrointestinal cancer surgeries, orthopaedics and spine surgeries and dental treatment.
Speaking to Bayside Journal about the initiative, Suhas Aradhye, MD and CEO of Patni Healthcare, says, “Currae Hospitals are empanelled with all TPAs and insurance companies that include GIPSA. I personally know many people who postpone their surgeries because the unavailability of cash and a lack of health insurance. Out of social concern, we have taken this initiative to provide cashless treatment even for those who are not insured. This initiative is supported by our team of experienced doctors.”
He further added, “As of now this offer will be valid till December 31, 2016, but we may extend this initiative further after consulting with the doctors and taking into account the patients’ benefits.”
