Though our country has become a hub for medical tourism, many hospitals are run like businesses. Just a consultation with a doctor today, has become expensive. Tests and medical procedures are prescribed for simple illnesses. Moreover, tests done in one hospital are deemed unacceptable in another. Quality healthcare is available only at high costs. For those below poverty line and in the lower middle class, healthcare is a mirage.
