Aarogya Raksha Follow Up Packages

A medical contingency can be divided into various parts. One of these parts is follow-up treatment. Without appropriate follow-up, medical treatment may not be of any good use. Considering this fact, the Aarogya Raksha scheme includes cashless follow-ups for certain treatments. Here are the details:

The expenses related to diagnostic tests, consultation, medicines, etc. are covered under Aarogya Raksha. Cashless follow-up treatment begins from 11th day after discharge from the hospital. A patient covered under Aarogya Raksha benefits can continue to make use of follow-up services for one year. It is not required to raise a separate claim for availing follow-up treatment

The follow-up packages are divided into four parts corresponding to four quarters of one year. More amount is dedicated to the first quarter as comparatively more follow-up is required during this time after hospitalization. These treatments are facilitated by MEDCO along with VAIDYAMITHRA

The cost for each follow-up package can be viewed by visiting the official website of Aarogya Raksha. You can also use the follow-up registration form to keep track of treatment and visits.
