Patients of Organ transplantation in Telangana to receive complete healthcare

 

Patients of Organ transplantation in Telangana to receive complete healthcare package under Arogyasri scheme Telangana state govt. has determined to give better financial help to the patients undergoing organ transplantation in the state and accordingly has brought up with a complete healthcare package for the patients under the existing Arogyasri free health insurance scheme of the
government.

As part of the new package provided by the state government under the Arogyasri free health scheme, the patients who are undergoing organ transplant surgeries like liver, heart, lungs, kidneys and even stem cells will be provided a complete financial package not only for the cost of transplantation surgery, but it will also involve financial aid for lifelong support by giving free immunosuppressant drugs all through the life of patient.

However, except the Nizam institute of Medical Sciences and a few major government hospitals, the private hospitals are not allowing this package and they have gone out of it under Arogyasri as they feel the packages are very low, with this it has become tough for the patients to get highest quality organ transplantation treatment in private and corporate hospitals and waiting for their turn to be operated in NIMS.
