Guys, not just Manipal hospital. Please be aware below kind of incidents may happen in some other hospital as well in these days, as some Hospitals and their staff look only to make money... esp, once they know you have an insurance.

Can’t we do anything for this below incident???
Even I was got cheated when I took my brother for just stomach pain and the bill was around 6k.. to be frank, my bro was infected with food poison which he had in Nandhini..
This is the conversation happened between me and doctor.,
Me: Doctor, Why the bill is so high just for 2 hours??
Doc: Your brother is infected with high stomach pain. We cannot give medicine without knowing the exact reason..
Me: So what????
Doc: we need to take test tomorrow to find out, what exactly was the reason??
Me: Humm, if you cannot able to find the right reason now then what medicine did you gave him now???
Doc: This is just a first-Aid kind of stuffs.
Me: What do you suspect for this pain???
Doc: It could be Stomach Cancer or Ulcer Or some stone might have formed..
Me: (I was Literally Shocked!!!!) he never experience this kind of pain before and it’s the first time..
Doc: So it means, you brought it on right time than coming at last..
Me: I agree all the points but none of the test were done so far then why so bill high???
Doc: I billed it in advance, you can pay now and take your brother to home and get him tomorrow..
Me: Okay, then..
Doc: tomorrow when you get him, you no need to pay anything.(As if, they are providing free of cost..) Just get the testing done and we verify..
Me: I am not ready to pay now.. if reqd, I will come tomorrow and pay.. You just strike out everything and get bill only for the actions what you have done now..
Doc: If that is the case, no probs.. I will revert all the bills and pay only the bill for tonight..
Mani and Satheesh were with me the hospital.. I hope they remember this incident..
Such a shame…..!!!!
This is shocking but true.... Please read this... its worth it….!!!
Dear All, I am Ravikumar
I would like to get one of the incident happened this weekend to ur notice.
One of my co-brother met with an bike accident and expired on Friday night.(A BMTC bus came in wrong side and hit him)
This accident happened around 6.30 PM near whitefield and initially he got admitted to a hospital called Vydehi near whitefield.
Later it was proposed by Vydehi doctors to take him to either Nimhance or Manipal.
So we took him to Manipal around 8.00 PM since NIMHANCE is very far and also by considering traffic at that time. To reach even Manipal it took too much time, Most of the delay caused because of Heavy Traffic in airport road. As soon as we took him to the Manipal hospital doctors said his state is very critical and 95 % he is out. Still they said they will do CT-Scanning and then they can clearly confirm the status.
Then around 10.30 PM they arranged for CT-Scanning ( Too much of delay ). Soon after the CT-Scanning one of the doctor reported his BRAIN is damaged , 2 kidney's and small lever also was damaged for which he needs to be operated for a head surgery and a stomach surgery, during the operation he may die also or at any moment he may die. Soon after they took him to ICU instead of taking him to Operation Theatre. There was around 1 hr delay in answering us back from this point. They didn't allow any of us to see him when he was in ICU until we demanded and shouted on them. When we demanded and asked them to discharge so that we will take him to NIMHANCE, Then the answer from them was they will operate immediately but we need to Admit and pay around 2 lack Rs. Since we didn't had that much of cash and also we doubted on whether he is still alive or simply these doctors playing a game..., But still since they demanded around 2 lack rupees for the operation before they start it, I went ahead to fill up the forms and pay money immediately with using credit card , But when our uncle had a look at him in ICU noticed that he is already dead (this was around 11.30 PM). Then immediately he asked me to not to make any payment. We went to doctor in-charge and asked(when we shouted) about his status and chances of he being saved. Doctor informed that chances are less than 1 percent, then only we realized that MANIPAL Administration guys playing a game, and trying to fool us to collect some money in the name of operations to operate a dead body !!!
We took it seriously and tried to contact TV9 on the same day but could not get the contact numbers...,
Since we were strong enough fight back on Manipal Hospital they agreed that he is dead and asked us to pay Rs. 30,000 to release dead body.
As we know they didn't give any treatment other than doing a CT-Scan and keeping the dead body in ICU for 2 Hrs.. We shouted on them and demanded to release the dead body with CT-Scan charges only. Finally we were able to fight and take the body with out paying any money as they were trying to cheat us.
Some how we escaped from being paid for dummy operations being planned by Manipal Doctors. But if it was some other innocent poor people they would have ended up with paying full money and cheated by MANIPAL.
The whole idea behind my write up is : we all know MANIPAL is one of the big and well known Hospital in Bangalore. But these people cheat innocent people by colleting huge money to operate even dead body!!! and try to fool as if they are going to save the patient. I request you all to forward this mail to all your friends and inform every one on how BIG Private Hospitals can cheat .. and to Beware of these..
