Doctor who died of virus slapped with Rs 13 77 lakh bill family protests
| Tuesday | 30th June, 2020
The hospital started his treatment and on June 13, his condition started deteriorating and he was put on a ventilator.
A senior official said that the patient was twice given injections worth Rs 40,000 each and other treatment as well.
The treatment continued for 20 days so the expected amount is nearly Rs 4 lakh but the hospital is asking us to pay Rs 13.77 lakhs which seems to be nowhere justified," said the son.
Significantly, Millennium Post had reported that the district administration in Noida had already approved a price regulation chart for private COVID-19 treatment but had chosen not to make it public or enforce it in private hospitals here.
These charges were fixed between Rs 8,000 to Rs 11,000 per day with extra charges for ICU beds varying between Rs 10,000 to Rs 15,000 and ventilators at Rs 5,000.
