You will be discharged upon your consultant's advice. Your final bill will be processed as soon as we receive the discharge order from your consultant.
For personal case (cash payer), your bill will be ready approximately one hour from the discharge time ordered by your doctor.
If you are under hospitalization insurance, the entire verification and bill processes may take approximately five hours depending on the confirmation from the insurers. You will be informed when your bill is ready. You may be asked to pay subsistence fee, if applicable at the time of your discharge. If there are items found to be broken or missing upon your discharge, they will be charged to your bill accordingly.
Check out time is 12.00 pm.
Discharges from 2.00 pm - 5.00 pm, an additional half day room charge will be incurred.
Discharges after 5.00 pm will be charged as a full day's rate.
Take home medication & follow up appointment.
Medication will be given to you in the ward upon producing the discharge slip.
Your follow up appointment with the consultant will also be made prior to your discharge.
Generally, the bill prescribed at discharge will be the final bill. Occasionally however, late charges for items used on the day of discharge may not be included. If this is the case, the hospital will notify the patient.
If you have a long stay in the hospital, we will update you or your family on your hospital bill's status periodically. If you are under GL or insurance scheme, our staff will file claims for you with your healthcare insurers or other programs.
