Private hospitals ignore government request

Several private hospitals are ignoring the Govt’s call to lower charges for blood reports in the light of the raging dengue. They have arbitrarily reverted to the earlier rates charged for blood reports as of this week.

Recently, private hospitals slashed the fee charged for a full blood count (FBC), essential in the management of dengue, to about half (Rs 250) following a Health Ministry request to help the country overcome the crisis.
