everything commercialised!..


today i went to get my blood tested.....just wanted to do some basic tests like complete hemogram...these basic tests are really easy to do[since have done those myself at my uncles lab]..was surprised when i saw my bill..it was abt 400rs just for some 4-5 basic tests...
some rightly said medicine has really been commercialized these days and to be frank cant blame then also since they have to recover their investment!....

Mariposa said...

Well, everything is an investement...prevention is worth more than a cure they say...so, if those tests can help us stay healthy, so be it! LOL

My health insurance covers all lab tests...so I'm not caring how much they cost, yet, I hear people complain...so it must be costing them!

Hope the results we all good!
