Public sector insurer, National Insurance Company (NIC) on Wednesday made a strong pitch for monitoring pricing in private hospitals and a need for a regulator in this regard.

According to AV Girija Kumar, Chairman and Managing Director, NIC, there was a need to have a regulator who would monitor pricing in private hospitals and stop them from charging exorbitant rates.

“There is a need for monitoring pricing in private hospitals,” he told newspersons on the sidelines of an interactive session organised by the MCC Chamber of Commerce & Industry.

“Healthcare financing and delivery should be integrated and this will help the insured people immensely,” he added.
