Hospitalization of self or a loved one can be distressing, unexpected medical emergency or prolonged illness can strain finances if such expenses are not provisioned for through Medical Insurance taken in form of individual policy or covered by the employer. Central and State Governments also provide medical benefits to their employees in varying forms. Sir Ganga Ram hospital encourages all individuals responsible for families to take up Medical Insurance as early as possible in their life. Individuals can also opt for increased cover by taking separate medical insurance apart from that provided by the employer (please check the total sum assured of the Group Insurance policy provided by the employer).

Your consultant will decide about the treatment, investigation and procedure which are required.
