Patients who require open-heart surgery, kidney transplant, dialysis and other highly specialized procedures, should obtain an estimated cost of such procedures from their doctors before arriving at Vellore. Such patients should generate funds from their own contacts. However, some economically backward patients have been able to collect money from sources like Prime Minister’s relief fund, Chief Minister’s relief fund, various charity organizations and appeals in news- papers for expensive treatment.
Another important factor that will affect the total cost is the length of admission which is determined by your illness and the subsequent treatment. Though doctors will give you information as to the approximate duration of hospitalization, it is sometimes difficult to give an accurate estimation as it will, depend primarily on your condition, the number of investigations and consultations required before treatment and how well you respond to the treatment given.
Apart from the above, there will be other costs incurred such as board and lodging. It is wise to budget for all the above and to provide for sufficient reserve. It is important to keep in mind that specialized treatment is expensive and takes time.
