  1. There has been a noticeable increase in Oncology related treatment at Empanelled Hospitals. The proportion of expenditure on Investigation and Treatment will definitely have an impact on bill settlement for other morbidities considering fiscal limitations Some RCs esp at metros have reported an increased preference amongst HCO’s for prescribing costly investigations within powers of SEMO which necessitate approval by Senior Advisor Oncology to justify its indication and prevent misuse.
  2. The following measures are advised to check unnecessary investigations and Chemotherapy on the online BPA billing portal:-

(a) Chemotherapy. Most oncology drugs are single use and therefore uploading of the vial wrapper is essential and uploaded as one image, preferably as a printed sticker with following details:-
