Cashless medical facilities - 449 hospitals allowed

New Delhi: Cashless medical facilities for persons insured with PSU companies have been restored in 449 hospitals in four big cities after hospitals have agreed to charge them at par with non-insured patients, Rajya Sabha was informed on Tuesday.

Minister of state for finance Namo Narayan Meena said public sector insurance companies had to resort to rationalisation of rates for cashless facilities as they suffered a loss of Rs 2,000 crore because of overcharging by hospitals in Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai and Bangalore.
