I will really appreciate your advice here.
Last year I was diagnosed with Hypertension. During my pregnancy, Sep 2012, I was hospitalised due to hypertension. Unfortunately we also lost our new born after 4 days. Since then we have seen number of doctors and conducted several tests to understand the cause. Since I have been on medication to control my high BP.
On march 16th due to certain symptoms I learnt that my BP had shot up to 200/140. Doctor was called home who gave me oral medications, but that failed to control it. He advised immediate hospitalisation. At Thunga hospital, doctor advised us to get admitted to an ICU. I was in ICU for 24 hours and during this period I was given some injections to lower my BP; and then was moved to another ward for another 24hours for further observation.
Oral medication billed to some Rs.600 and the remaining was some Rs.14870 was for tests, ICU and other room charges and several doctor visits. My Husband's Group mediclaim through TPA-GHPL rejected our claim stating the medical bill was only Rs.600 and hence this was only investigative hospitalisation and not active line of treatment. Please advise the next steps and if we should involve a lawyer to fight this case.
