Insurance policies have now taken up the change and included Day Surgery as reimbursable, doing away with '24 hrs' admission. It has taken more than 4 years to make this change. Correspondence is in progress to instruct the insurance agents in the changes, so that disbursal of claims can be done easily. We have positive support of the TPA Association. CLICK HERE

The Association was formed in 2003 and the First Founding Body was incorporated and installed in 2005. Constitution was drafted for the working of the Association. Now, regular amendments have been made during the AGM, minutes of those have been sent periodically to you. Elections are due, rules have been framed and winds of change are proposed, implemented and executed. Elections do not mean rejection of an individual, but, in a true democratic spirit, it allows you to express yourself. The progress of the Association should be foremost in our minds. Whoever contests, gets elected or nominated, let us all continue to be as supportive for this is our organization, collectively.
We need to push for recognition of a Day Surgery Centre as a category for registration with the local Municipal corporations. Working with NGO,s or hospitals in setting up Protocols, standards and parameters for Day Surgery, for the betterment of our patient population.
Day Surgery should be made a part of of our UG and PG teaching.
An appeal to all, please send in your suggestions. Come forward and make this Association move forward.
A balance between the economics and top quality, safe medical care, is what every individual strives for.
