Bengaluru: Since CT- Scan or X-Ray is becoming increasingly necessary to detect Covid-19 infection, Government has decided to cap the price of CT-Scan and Digital X-Ray in private hospitals and labs at ₹1,500 and ₹250 respectively, said Dr.K.Sudhakar.

We have received complaints that some hospitals and labs are exploiting people by charging high prices. To check this government has decided to cap prices of CT scan and X-ray at private hospitals and labs.

Strict action will be taken against hospitals and labs which violate rules and charge high prices. Government hospitals are providing CT Scan and X-ray facility free of cost. People should utilise these government facilities, said Minister.
