CHARGES AND SETTLEMENT OF BILLS
At the time of admission patients usually pay an advance. After admission weekly bills are presented to all in-patients on every Monday evening. If you do not receive a weekly bill contact the ward sister or ward clerk. These bills should be settled on a weekly basis within 48 hours. A final bill will be presented on the day of discharge which should be paid before the patient vacates the room/bed. The final bill includes special procedures, major interven- tions etc. You can settle bills through cash, demand drafts (D.D) or credit / debit cards.
If you are claiming reimbursement, proceed to Credit Authorisation and Reimbursement (CARE) Section on the first floor of the main building room No.106.
Please check and verify the details and the total amount to be paid.
Please ensure that the receipt shows the correct amount paid.
If possible, please tender exact amount to be paid.
For further clarification regarding your in-patient bills, please contact the sister-in-charge of your ward who will be able to help you.
