Giver complaints here

  • For complaints regarding information call 1800-4258330 and give the complaint directly.
  • There is no tie-up for all types of treatments at all the concerned hospitals. Therefore, one needs to ascertain which hospital provides what treatments under the scheme. Hence, all hospitals have “Arogya Mitra” counter at their premises for this concern.
  • Although treatments of up to Rs 5 lakh may be availed, it cannot be availed for only one person or as a group. If admitted in an ICU, the payment will be in phases.
