Medical expense estimate in private hospitals

This petition had 45 supporters

It's an unfortunate thing that we face in private hospitals. Have you ever been through this and does it sound familiar. Your dear one is hospitalised in hospital and you approach the Estimation department to give you an estimate of expense. You make necessary financial arrangements basis the estimate provided for the estimated no. of days. Day one of hospitalization passes and next day you receive a call from hospital to arrange more funds as the hospital expenses on day 1 itself have overshooted the total expense estimated for entire stay. 

At this point imagine the state of a poor person who has to run from pillar to post to arrange for funds which is not an easy task and the trauma is just too much to manage.

We plead that hospitals do not fool us. How can the estimate be so grossly incorrect. They should own up for the Estimation and if the same is wrong hospital should not be liable to ask for anything more beyond +- 20% of what was estimated unless there was has been a life saving intervention that was required.
