We are committed to provide world class healthcare services at an affordable cost.

We provide a personalised approach to all those who walk into our Hospital as we offer "Care With Personal Touch". Transformation of Patients’ Status.

Transformation of Hospital’s Attitude. 
 Transformation of Doctors’ Profession.   We, at KMC Hospital, Mangalore, have gone back to the roots of the medical profession. Where, compassion, selfless service and a personal bonding between the doctor and the patient existed. Over the last few years we have successfully changed the relationship of treating a patient as a customer to a guest and now are on the threshold of re-defining defining them as a blood relative. The view being that we would like our every patient’s experience of medical care to be the same as that we would want our own blood relative to experience.

KMC Hospitals have instituted Corporate help desk and Insurance help desk for an easy guide to cashless hospitalisation facility.

Today, most Health Insurance policies do offer cashless hospitalisation facility and route your policy through a Third Party Administrator (TPA). TPA’s have certain hospitals called “Network Hospitals” which are eligible to give cashless facility to the patient. If one is admitted in a “Non-network” hospital, then the bills are to be settled by the patient’s party and later seek re-imbursement through the TPA.

There is no free treatment provided by the hospital. This facility just enables oneself to undergo the entire treatment without any direct payment. The cost is borne by the insurance company partially or fully on your behalf. Hospital doesn’t reserve any rights to approve or disapprove your bills. It just mediates between you and your TPA.

For planned admission you should get the pre-authorisation form approved by your TPA 3-4 days prior to hospitalisation. In case of emergency admissions our help desk shall fast track your approval/denial with your TPA. It should be clearly understood that the hospital authorities can in no way influence the approval of your pre-authorisation form with your TPA. In case it’s not approved or the approval comes after your discharge process has commenced, you shall be liable to pay the entire amount before being discharged from the hospital.Our help desk is experienced enough to advice you on the filling of pre-authorisation forms. It would decrease the chances of denials.
