With several insurance firms reportedly discontinuing cashless facility in some of the city hospitals due to inflated bill claims, Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Sunday promised to look into the issue.
Dikshit, when asked about reports that people having cashless insurance cover for treatment at private hospitals are facing difficulties following non-availability of the facility, said her government needed a week's time to try to find a solution.
"We will do something. Give us some time. We will hold talks within a week and try to find a solution to the problem," the Chief Minister said.
Some health insurance companies apparently stopped the cashless facility with effect from July one for treatment in some of the city hospitals citing submission of inflated bills by the hospitals.
People having cashless health insurance policy do not require to pay any amount for treatment at the hospitals covered under the scheme as the hospitals get the cost of the treatment from the insurance companies.
