Six months old Shaheen Khan (name changed) was born with a heart defect. She was advised surgery by the doctor. Shaheen's father contacted Credihealth for hospital and doctor recommendations and cost estimates for the surgery.
How We Helped:
The medical expert took a detailed medical history and suggested hospitals and cardiac surgeons in Mumbai, along with the cost of the surgery.
Since the cost was not budget-friendly for the family, the medical expert coordinated with the hospital management and managed to negotiate a discount on the surgery.
The family was also able to avail discounts on the doctor consultations for Shaheen, through Crediplus.
Shaheen is undergoing treatment now. Her parents are happy with the discounts and thanked the medical expert for all the help and support provided for Shaheen's treatment.
