theres no legislation regulating the industry to ensure prostitutes are being looked after and that no one underage is employed.which is usually charged as a "package" in corporate hospitals has not changed significantly since then trade experts said In January this year 72-year-old Pramila Madan was brought to a Delhi-based corporate hospital after she had bouts of vomiting and fluctuating blood pressure She was diagnosed with a blocked blood vessels in the heart and her family was charged Rs 34 lakhs of which nearly 15 lakh was the "package" cost of angioplasty The package included the charges of the Cath Lab (where angioplasty is done) but excluded the stent price diagnostics doctor’s visit charges etc Madan eventually died of complications in February Representational image Reuters "We were not explained anything about the procedure" said Jitendra Madan her husband "We were made to sign several consent forms We had no idea that they were inserting a stent inside her We did not know anything about the package or about what other costs were involved" The family did not get an itemised bill after Madan’s death and had to write to the hospital to get the records They got it only in March In fact a report commissioned by AdvaMed a medical device trade association showed that at most hospitals including large and small private institutes the government’s decision to cap the costs of stents resulted in just 8 to 18 percent reduction in angioplasty costs whereas the price of stents had been capped at 85 percent lower to the earlier price Insurance companies too had said that price of the procedure has not gone down since a the price of stents were capped "Since the price of cardiac stents was capped last year the cost of the procedure for the patient did not change dramatically in the initial period" said Malti Jaswal Chief Operating Officer Health Insurance TPA of India Ltd "It did not have the impact it was supposed to have and there was a tendency in the hospitals to make up for the reduced price one way or the other through consumables other charges/components of the package etc" She added that with the revision of the cardiac stent price this year to Rs 27890 the hospitals seem to be "coming around" and that they are noticing "better discipline" in trying not to add made up costs to the bills In several studies that NPPA had undertaken before finally capping the price of stents the body observed that that highest margins were made by the hospital (654 percent on an average) before the maximum retail price was fixed The current trend of not reducing the costs points to the hospitals’ reluctance to reduce their profit margins So far any attempt to regulate the private health sector in the country has been futile The Clinical Establishment Act has been adopted by only 16 states and Union Territories most of whom are yet to implement the Act a Central government official said The Central government relayed the problem related to private healthcare saying that health is a state subject and that it is up to the states to adopt the Act The Indian Medical Association or IMA largely made of private doctors in nearly every state have opposed the Clinical Establishment Act tooth and nail So far the only attempt made by the government to directly reduce healthcare costs in the private sector is by capping the prices of 871 essential scheduled drugs and monitoring the prices of non scheduled drugs Scheduled drugs are part of the National List of Essential Drugs and its prices are fixed by the NPPA This year the government has started monitoring the prices of medical devices now deemed as drugs such as syringes needles intraocular lenses heart valves bone cements among others But an NPPA analysis of four hospital bills from National Capital Region showed that the trade margin between price to stockist and maximum retail price was up to 789 percent in the case of different kinds of syringes and up to 450 percent in the case of consumables related to cardiac procedures such as balloons catheters among others Hospitals are major stockists of these products and make a very high margin The analysis also observed over the years the use of non scheduled drugs has been increasing since the Drug Price Control Order 2013 was instituted "When the price of a drug is capped the pharmaceutical manufacturers start marketing the same drug of a different dosage (which is not under price control) or make fixed dose combinations with scheduled drugs" said Malini Aisola from All India Drug Action Network a group of nonprofits that work on increasing access and affordability of drugs As per the AIOCD Pharmasofttech a pharmaceutical market research company the growth rate of market of non-scheduled drugs is nearly double that of the growth of the market of scheduled drugs in 2017 Scheduled drugs could make up only 10 percent of the market last year The NPPA in its reportanalysingallegations of overcharging by hospitals also noted that the expenditure on scheduled drugs is only 410 percent and that of non-scheduled drugs is 2567 percent "It is clear that for higher margins doctors/hospitals preferred prescribing and dispensing non-scheduled branded medicines instead of scheduled medicines .
