Why Pay More for Medicines, Tests and Procedures..!!

Despite the fact that Indian govt. through their initiatives and decisions are making a significant impact in the area of healthcare. But one area in which nobody seems to be paying attention is the generating awareness and information availability among members of public and lack coordination among the stake holders of the industry for the benefit of common people.

Increase in medical bills

 Per-Capita income in India grew 100% from the year 2000 to 2012. Impressive, isn’t it?
In the same time frame, the expenditure on medical bills by an Indian family increased by more than 300% … and we wonder why we aren’t getting as rich as many statistics indicate. The impact of increased costs is so much that more and more families opt not to get hospitalized, a drop from 19% to 15% in those 12 years. Think of the patients who didn’t get hospitalized because they feared they might end up selling their homes. Frequently, this fear is caused by lack of knowledge about how much something costs at some place.

The Lost Patient

For instance, one has to walk into a dispensary, clinic or a hospital to know what the ailment is, whether it can be treated there, what is the cost involved. Is there any alternative to what is suggested to the patient, can the cost be reduced w.r.t. tests, procedures medicines? Can he get more specialized treatment nearby or he has to go to a place which is beyond his reach. Does a small time doctor in a village know that this can be treated by one of his senior counterparts in a nearby town?

Cost Variance

For instance, cost of a Prostate Surgery can differ by a factor of 10 in the same city. The price of bypass surgery of heart may vary from big to huge to astronomical figures. A medicine may be available at 10% or 20% or sometimes even at 33% discount depending on how well you know the medical map of your region.

India is huge country growing at a very fast pace. There are 10s of thousands of Hospitals, Laboratories,100s of thousands of Chemists all over the place. It is hard to make an optimal choice when you are already dealing with a health problem.
