PATIENT CARE

Drop in beforehand!

As soon as you know the date of admission to hospital, we advise you to drop in to our Admission Office a few days in advance, if your state of health permits. This gives you a chance to complete the administrative formalities and save yourself the trouble on the day of your admission to the hospital.

Checklist for your admission:

  • The letter of referral for admission from your doctor.
  • Your insurance card or cover guarantee from your health insurance fund or insurance company.
  • A government issued identity document (Passport, Driver’s License, Aadhar card)

Check Your Insurance

If you are covered by international and foreign insurance, we suggest you to check your cover and make sure that the cost will be met before you are admitted. You should apply for a guarantee of full cover for your stay. You may have been refered for outpatient treatment but may have to spend one or more night in the hospital. In such cases your stay is considered to be hospitalization.

Your insurance does not cover cost of personal laundry, telephone & personal expenses (Newspaper, Hairdresser etc.) You have to meet these yourself.
