Telangana authorities on Thursday issued 88 show cause notices to 64 private hospitals for purported to overcharging Covid-19 patients and set a 48-hour deadline to respond or lose licence to cure corona virus patients. The action was taken after receiving strict orders from task force committee headed by IT minister KT Rama Rao.

Health department officials stated that hospitals function from Hyderabad and Cyberabad to a large extent. After many patients complaining regarding the exorbitant fees charged by hospitals, the management teams are now on the verge of loosing their operating licenses as they have multiple complaints against them in this matter

“Of the 88 complaints received, 39 are from core Hyderabad city, 22 from Medchal- Malkajgiri, 135 from Ranga Reddy. Majority of the hospitals are in Hyderabad. The one that has the highest number of complaints is a hospital in Kukatpally,” Telangana public health director Dr G Srinivasa Rao said.

As a result of more discharges shooting up in the recent past, number of complaints too raised accordingly. In the review, it was known that most of the complaints received are about excessive billing, vaccination, bed occupancy and drug related issues.
