Financial Help for Poor Patients

Mounting medical expenses are bleeding India’s poor.  Out-of-pocket expenses still account for bulk of medical spending. The benefits of insurance cover or Government health schemes have not reached the vast majority of rural poor. Millions in villages are pushed into poverty every year due to medical expenditure.

Among all medical treatments, it is cancer treatment which is one of the most expensive. Since cancer care is long-term in nature, it translates into recurring expenditure. This has a huge financial implication for an underprivileged family, making it imperative to obtain financial assistance from NGOs and funds.

Fortunately, many organisations endeavour to financially assist the needy and some of them are listed below.

Aster Sick Kids Foundation (ASK Foundation)

Provides expert medical care for cancer care for deserving children under age 18, with the support of funds raised through various charitable activities. Treatment is carried out in Aster Medcity at Kochi, but children undergoing treatment in other hospitals are also considered.
