Plea in Kerala HC seeks fixed rates of COVID-19 treatment in various hospitals


Thiruvananthapuram, Apr 27 (ILNS) A petition was today filed in the Kerala High Court, seeking fixed rates of COVID-19 treatment by Private Hospitals, Labs and Diagnostic Centers.

Filed by Advocate Sabu Thomas through Advocates CN Sreekumar, Manju Paul and Sureshkumar C, the plea was mentioned before a Vacation Bench of Justices Ashok Menon and Murali Purshothaman, this morning.

It alleged that private medical centers and testing centers in the state were charging high prices for diagnostic tests and treatment of COVID-19 patients.

The petition claimed that the state government was bound to take appropriate action or remedial measures to control and regularise the high charges imposed by Private Hospitals for the treatment of COVID-19.

“The state government should assure that every citizen should be provided with facility to get adequate treatment through Government Health Service or else, assure the treatment through other private facilities, with availability of beds, ICU’s and Oxygen-supported beds in Government Hospitals,” the petitioner prayed.

Further, the plea sought direction to ensure free treatment for COVID-19 patients below poverty line in both Government and Private Hospitals. ILNS/SHV/RJ
