My mother had bypass surgery recently. We were charged Rs. 4.4 lakhs, out of which Rs. 40, 000 were under administration charges (10 % of the total billed amount). Is it common practice for hospitals to collect administration charges and more importantly is it covered by insurance companies?
Yes, it is common practice for hospitals to charge administration fee per patient.
Health insurance doesn't cover the admin charges.
