This is a research article for the ‘cost of hospitalization’ for the in-patients in private hospitals in India. I restricted the review to the corporate hospitals and analyzed the cost of hospitalization for the patients throughout five years. The average ‘cost of hospitalization’ for in-patients over the years in these hospitals, shows surprisingly less increase and the inflation-adjusted rise of these costs is marginal. This is counter intuitive, and I am publishing this analysis so that there can be further studies dissecting these costs and if this data reflects the accurate picture. If so, it would be interesting to understand why this is so.
