Aarthi Advanced CT Scan And MRI Kilpauk - Master Health Check up

Reliable scan centre

I always go to Aarthi scans in case of any diagnostic procedure or for any Master health check up. I have taken all sorts of test right from EEG, ECG, X ray, ultrasound etc.., Neither me nor the friends or relatives i have referred have had a bad experience there. Recently i went there for a master health check up. the appointment was at 7 am and the labtechnician came at 7am sharp to collect the blood samples, the best part is when opening the sealed syringe covers, they show us for ensuring us that they dont use resued syringes. In case of emergency the tests are conducted and reports are given immediately. Overall staff behavior is good and all the tests are done reliably at an affordable cost.

Star Health & Allied Insurance Co. Ltd - Orthopeadic procedure

Break your hip, we pay...not for preventive procedure say Star Health

Sometimes i am baffled by the logic the underwriters employ while approving insurance claims. What are they looking for 'misuse of the cover by doctors/surgeons'.....'misuse of the cover by hospitals'.....'effectiveness of the treatment'...... or are they crippled by the premise of their policies so one doesn't get to experiment the modern techniques in medicines or their policies do not provide for the experimental procedures which are preventive in nature. In which case they expect the patient to actually aggravate the disease so that the policy comes into effect. Ok lets take a real life example and apply the same to their logic..

I was diagnosed for 3 spinal disc bulges and avascular necrosis on both my hips.
The surgeon's opinion : it is ridiculous to perform surgery for 3 discs & performing a surgery for a single disc does not guarantee stoppage of nerve damage. Necrosis in the hip region could aggravate and the femur could collapse resulting in a hip replacement surgery.

Plan : Epidural injection in the spine / faucet joint region to reduce pain followed by physiotherapy.
De-compress hip bone and infuse stem cell tissues to rejenuvate the necrotic area.

I had a 10 lakh floater policy with Star Health, serviced for about 4-5 years. Thankfully i went for a pre-authorisation and the insurer agreed to allow the claim for hospitalisation e.t.c but sent a rider which categorically denied the claim for bonemarrow injection/stem cell infusion. I argued with insurer that the whole purpose of this surgery evolves around stem cell infusion, but they woudn't relent.

When i spoke to their top management they said that bone marrow injection & stem cell are permanent exclusions and they can't do anything about it. They also clarified that hip replacement is not under exclusion and would be allowed in the claim.

So the insurer wants me to break my hip and go for a claim, but would not pay for preventive therapy. What is the logic behind this brilliance !!!

Let say in the case of a cardiac patient undergoing a stent, what is the guarantee that he would not go for a by-pass surgery in the future ?? So a stent is covered but not a bone marrow injection or stem cell infusion..

With this comparision in mind i did a little more research on the exclusion and found that the insurer's attribute it to the misuse by surgeons as there is no tangible evidence that the stem cell was performed post op.

This costed me a packet. While trying to negate a false claim they have turned down a genuine beneficiary. Even if you buy the stem cell package ( one time processing machine ) directly from the company trying to save 40% in cost, the hospital would come down with a surprise package of their own.....they would bill you 30% as surcharge on the market value...its like carrying your own bottle into a club and paying corkage..

So, before you press the 'buy now' button for an online policy or cut out a cheque to the agent please please read the exclusions part very carefully. Some could be temp & others could be permament. It would be prudent to spend a little more time to compare other insurers or simply spread your policies/risk with more than one insurer. This way you can probably use to one that best suits your current needs.

If you find that my interpretation of this is incorrect kindly update as i would like learn more on this subject.

Ps : Apart from the stem cell infusion, Star Health reimbursed 90% of my claim. The rest was usual over-billing by the hospital for insurance cases.

RM Noble Hospital - Low blood pressure

No Transparency in Treatment

Health Issues: I fainted early in the morning at six and had excessive sweating and vomiting.
Treatment: I visited RM noble hospital in Thiruvanmiyur around 1 PM and was asked to visit Dr. Prakash by the receptionist.
While I waited for the doctor, a male nurse checked for my BP and informed me the BP level was 100/60.
I explained all that had happened from the time I woke up to doctor Prakash. I also informed him that I didn't take any food except for a chikku juice.
He immediately insisted that I should be given vitals and IV and prescribed tablets and injections after inquiring me about my job, the food I had the previous night, etc. The nurse couldn't find the right vein for the IV twice and finally with a butterfly needle she succeeded(The 2 needles which she wasted are also billed).
When I woke up after the drips and the tablets I still had the drowsiness. ECG readings were taken and it was normal.The injection that was put in my low hip was the bad experience I had so far.It was not rightly injected. The nurse didn't even tell me to rub on the injected place.
Dr. Prakash had left after his shift and I had another Doctor who said everything is normal and asked me to have my food properly and sleep well without stressing yourself.
This cost me 2220 Rupees(consulting - 400, bed charges - 500,tablets and IV - 1000,ecg - 320).
And finally even after I came out of the hospital I had no idea what exactly caused me faint, sweat, and vomit. I had no idea why fluids were given, why this treatment was suggested, why ECG was performed.All I heard from the doctors was have your food at the right time whenever I insisted for the reason I fainted.I could have done this at home by myself.Complete dissatisfaction.

Dr. Smilez Dental Clinic - Dental treatments

Scaling and Cleaning

Recently went for scaling to the alwarpet branch of Dr. Smilez dental clinics. It is located at Anandapuram and is in a quite locality.

The clinic itself was very clean and hygienic. I was welcomed by the person at the reception and called in for my treatment within 5 minutes. Scaling took about 25-30 minutes and I found it to be value for money.

Dr.Rajkumar, who listens to patient problem and then prescribes medicines. He has never talked to the patient in the operational theater, medicine prescribed by the doctors is very effective, need not repeat the same concern with doctor. Staff are patient friendly.

Good Service

I have been into this pharmacy many times and bought many medicines for my family members. They have all medicines in stock and their service is good. Most medicines which are not available in local stores are available here. I would suggest this pharmacy to many people and this is one pharmacy with more space and one of the best pharmacy in our locality.
