GB Pant sets its own price cap for cardiac stents
Bringing relief for the patients suffering from heart attack and blockage in the arteries of the heart, GB Pant Hospital has made it possible to provide cardiac stents at Rs 22,500, including taxes. The hospital's previous fee was fixed at Rs 23,625, with taxes driving up costs even more. The prices will, however, continue to start at Rs 9,000.
According to a senior doctor from the hospital's cardiology department, the new approach will benefit patients across India, as other government hospitals that presently charge up to Rs 30,000 for stents are expected to follow the new price set at GB Pant.
