Chandigarh, November 19

Taking a major step towards stopping the fleecing of Covid patients by doctors, the state government today decided to cap the charges of CT-scan at Rs 2,000 in private hospitals and diagnostic centres.

As per an order issued by the Director, Health Services, the state government, in exercise of the powers vested under the Epidemic Diseases Act, 1897 (Covid-19 Regulations-2020), has directed that no private diagnostic center should charge any amount of more than Rs 2,000 for CT-scan/IRCT chest scan, inclusive of GST/taxes, documentation and reporting, in the state. The diagnostic centres conducting the CT-chest scan must share their data with the district civil surgeons. — TNS
