Manipal Hospitals Admission Process
Once it is sure that a patient will need to be admitted, the doctor will help the patient by telling them the treatment plan, under which the patient will be admitted, the required number of days and will provide other details such as what type of bed and room the patient will require. Once this is done, the patient will be required to go to the admission lounge and will be required to fill out the form and finish all formalities to get admitted.
Once the treatment is complete, upon the advice of the consulting doctor, a bill is created and offered to the patient. The medical records held by the pharmacy as well as the hospital will be used to create the medical bill. The bill will be presented to the patient, and the patient can pay through cash, debit/credit cards or through insurance. The bill will be given to the patient at the time of discharge.
