Private hospital charges to be regulated says minister



article_image

The government is now in the process of regulating private hospital bills because most private hospital charges are exorbitant, Minister of Health, Nutrition and Indigenous Medicine Dr Rajitha Senaratne said.

" I have given the task of preparing an audit report to a leading audit firm and its report will be released soon, probably in two weeks' time. Once it is released, new private hospital charges will be regulated, Senaratne said at a function recently that announced the Tradmed International 2017 Trade Fair. 

The Ministry of Health, Nutrition and Indigenous Medicine and Department of Ayurveda in collaboration with the University of Sri Jayewardenepura and World Health Organization (WHO) have initiated a programme to provide the world a platform to share expertise, knowledge and skills on cutting edge research interventions and inventions on traditional and complementary medicine. This will take the form of the Tradmed educational exhibition & trade fair –to be held on November 23, 24 and 25 at Water’s Edge, Colombo
