It is the patient's responsibility to settle the hospital account. Some insurers or other sponsors will settle the hospital account directly. The guidelines below help explain our hospital billing & payment procedure.

Payment
Patients paying on their own account, will be asked for a deposit payable on or before admission. For emergency admissions or discharges after office hours, payment can be made at the reception desk.

Company Sponsors
Patients need to supply on admission a signed letter from their sponsor clearly accepting responsibility for payment of their account and also define the patients eligibility.

Medical Insurance
Patients are asked to supply a completed claim form. Medical Insurance cover is a contract between patients and their insurer and patients are ultimately responsible for settling their account. The Trust strongly advises all patients to check their eligibility before admission, with particular reference to exclusions and waiting periods.

Mode of payment
All payments must be made in Cash, Demand Draft or Pay Order only.
Demand Drafts and Pay orders should be drawn in the name of:
"N.M. Wadia Institute of Cardiology"

We accept all Master & VISA credit cards, American Express.

Outstanding accounts will be reviewed regularly and reminder letters sent. Unfortunately where non-payment of accounts remain outstanding after reminder notices have been issued, the Trust must refer the account to our legal debt collection service. It is hoped this service will not be required.
