Diabolical: When healthtech and fintech combine

In Financial competency on 04/12/2020 at 4:23 am

When my mum was hospitalised in Raffles (Bill: Private hospital treatment, public hospital fees ), the bill would have been about $15,000 for nine days’ stay and treatment. Thanks to the PAP govt, she paid “peanuts”: a few months earlier our dog’s hospital bill was more, more a lot more. I joked that the Gods saw how well we treated our mongrel that they gave my mum a treat when she was hospitalised. How she struck Toto: Private hospital treatment, public hospital fees.

But in future, need $ to pay private hospital bill?

Patients of India’s Apollo Hospitals can use an app to get drug refills, tele-consultations and remote diagnoses—and even secure a medical loan through Apollo’s partnership with HDFC Bank.
