Free surgeries in private hospitals

Good news to Delhites. They can undergo specific surgeries free of cost.

AAP government has tied with 41 private hospitals in Delhi to allow 30 kinds of surgeries without any charge. The list includes major surgery like heart bypass as well.

Those who require these surgeries can utilize the opportunity. They need not pay any money to these private hospitals.

The hospitals that are tied with government will be reimbursed by the government at the rates of Central Government Health Scheme.

The treatment covers pre-surgery consultation, surgery, medicines, accommodation at hospital and food, and follow-ups for a month after discharge.

However, those who want to utilize the facility should have to be referred by government hospitals that they need these surgeries.
