Treatment Schemes
SCHEME FOR TREATMENT OF INDIGENT, WEAKER SECTION AND POOR PATIENTS:
The Hospital maintains an “Indigent Patient Fund (IPF)” for giving free/subsidized treatment to the Indigent and Weaker Section Patients in accordance with the Hon’ble Bombay High Court Order dated 17th August 2006. In addition, the Hospital also maintained “Poor Patient Subsidy Fund (PPSF)” to provide Free/Subsidized Healthcare Services to those poor community members whose income limit exceeds the limits specified in the Court Orders but are in a state of financial distress. Thus not only do we have beds for Indigent and Weaker Section Patients far in excess of the percentages specified by the Court but our definition of poor patients is much wider and the volume of Charity Care provided by our Hospital far exceeds the directions issued by the Bombay High Court.
