Notice from Yeshaswini and Arogyashree insurance network Hospitals

Kannada Version

We regret to inform you that we, the Hospitals treating Yeshaswini and Arogyashree patients, are under tremendous economic pressure. When these schemes were introduced 11 years ago we embraced it, as it gave us an opportunity to treat the poor of Karnataka. We were willing to treat the scheme patients even at a loss, since it comprised a manageable component of our patient volume. By cross subsidizing scheme with paying patients we managed to stay afloat.

Our Organisation

WE believe that the opportunity to choose and have a say in all matters of importance ought to be resting with the member. Hence the opportunity to serve our community of members should be provided as widely as possible, at the same time ensuring continuity and stability. Thus the emphasis on the Taluka/City/Town/Village level self governing member-cells. These are the base and origin of our forum and it's strength. Accordingly, the organisation begins with the Taluka/City/Town/Village level, bubbling upwards for effectiveness and strategic reasons.
