Covid treatment: Govt revises room rent at private hospitals


KOCHI: The government has fixed the room and suite rates for Covid treatment in private hospitals. The govt told the HC in a review petition filed by the Private Hospitals Association against the first order.

On June 10, it was ordered that the room and suite rates be fixed for the hospital, while the ward rent was fixed earlier. Dissatisfied with this, the Division Bench directed that the decision be reconsidered. The new order followed as the court quashed the June 10 order.

When the government informed that the decision was taken in consultation with the association, the plaintiffs stated that they would act at this rate and will approach the government if there are any deficiencies. A division bench of Justices Devan Ramachandran and Dr Kauser Edappagath adjourned the case till August 26.

Hospitals are categorized by NABH accreditation and number of beds.

Terms of order

  • This is the maximum room rent that can be charged from 1 Covid patient
  • Covid patients with other conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure are also included
  • If you need cardiac treatment, pay extra
  • ICU and ventilator facilities may be charged at a pre-determined rate
  • This does not include scans, PPE kits and expensive drugs like Remdesevir
  • Companies must pay the contractual amount to patients with an insurance claim
  • General Ward at Rs 2645 where there is no accreditation, Rs 2910 at accredited hospitals
