A small appeal to you all,
My father suffered from Brain Hemmorhage on the 7th of September and has been admitted to the ICU at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital, Mumbai. There has been a brain surgery and he has been on ventilator post the surgery.
He hasn’t gained consciousness since he has been admitted. We haven’t seen him wake up from the last two weeks and it is very painful for us.
Very unfortunately my insurance claim of ₹15 lakhs has also been rejected by Star Health insurance on the grounds that this is a complication due to a pre existing disease i.e. Hypertension and hence they aren’t approving any claim. We have been following up with them to no avail. We are unable to move him back to our hometown or to any other economical hospital until he is out of ventilator and gains stability and consciousness. We have tried all other resources such as meeting the Social worker of the hospital and other such institutions, all have denied help on the grounds that the patient is not admitted in our home state(Telengana) and we don't belong to the Below Poverty Line category. Also as we don't belong to Maharashtra, we are being denied help from the NGO's in Maharashtra.
He has been in ICU since the day of admission and we now have exhausted all means and angles in our attempts to bear the medical costs. We have already incurred a bill of about ₹10 Lakhs in two weeks and the doctors are saying that it will take a minimum of another 2 - 3 weeks for him to be atleast out of the ICU, which will push the bill to a minimum of ₹22-25 Lakhs.
We're going to have another surgical procedure today called - "Tracheotomy".
As we do not hold enough funds to currently clear the outstanding bill, we've been asked to wait. This will inturn increase our ICU and ventilator expenses.
My father is lying on the bed unconcious for more than 2 weeks now. It is obvious that I will make the payment, a little time is what I need, but the hospital is refusing to give me even that time.
All our savings has been washed away already and we're not able secure any more loans and the daily expenses are extremely high.
Currently I need your support to save my father. I would request you to kindly contribute whatever you are comfortable with, be it any amount. Please do help me in this need of the hour.
Thank you all in advance for the support extended
