Hospital to extend 7.5 per cent to 25 per cent subsidy depending on the cost of cards

Aayush Hospitals on Tuesday launched Aayush Health Card to offer subsidised medical services to patients, on the occasion of the hospital’s second anniversary. The 200-bed multi-specialty hospital was opened on May 13, 2012.

Pointing to two different health cards, costing Rs. 10,000 and Rs. 2,000, hospital director Mahesh Bikkina said depending on the cost of the cards, the hospital would extend 7.5 per cent to 25 per cent subsidy to outpatients and inpatients.

The subsidy, however, can be availed by a maximum of four members in a family.

Besides, one person can avail a year-long 50 per cent subsidy on health check-ups, he said, adding that the scheme would come into effect on June 1.

Dr. Bikkina said the remarkable growth of the hospital in a span of two years could be attributed to the high satisfaction levels of patients. Maintaining that the hospital offered up to 16 specialities, he said bifurcation might necessitate further expansion.

Speaking on the occasion, Lingamaneni Group chairman L. Purna Bhaskar Rao complimented the role of doctors in society.

Aayush Hospitals management committee chairman Y. Ramesh Babu said the hospital, equipped with a state-of-the-art technology, had over 25 full-time specialists.

Srinivas Sai, P.S.S. Chowdary and Lingamaneni Raja were present.
