In our state many children are born with heart disease by birth. When Going to a private hospital for common cardiovascular diseases can cost a lot of money. Hridayam is a project launched by the state government in 2017 as a solution to this. Let’s see what are the features of this heart project hridyam.
Hridyam is a treatment plan that can be used equally by all people up to the age of 18 if a child has any heart condition from the day of birth, be it a heart valve defect or any other cardiovascular disease. In addition, the cost of treatment is 100% free. The cost of a heart operation in a private hospital would be around Rs 1.5 lakh.
But you can definitely do this surgery using the hridyam plan. If you have been treated at a private hospital, you will need to register online and submit any other documentation that is part of the Heart treatment. All documents uploaded in this way will be checked by a pediatrician on the part of the government and you will receive a call from the authority if your application is accepted.
There are currently 7 hospitals under the Hridayam project which will provide operational facilities where there are vacancies. These include Amrita Hospital and Sree Chitra, Lisi Hospital. You can choose a hospital of your choice. Then contact the hospital, your name will be registered with the hospital and follow-up action will be taken.
