Pune (Maharashtra) [India], July 8 (ANI/BusinessWire India): According to a report by the Indian Journal of Community Medicine - "In India non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are now the leading cause of death in the country, contributing to 60% of deaths. Four diseases namely, cancer, diabetes, heart, and chronic pulmonary diseases contribute nearly 80% of all deaths due to NCDs."
However, with healthcare inflation in India rising at an alarming rate, availing medical care isn't cheap. In fact, many often people resort to drastic measures such as liquidating assets or mortgaging property to get the required funds.
An alternative and hassle-free solution to this is EMI financing with the Digital Health EMI Network Card offered by Bajaj Finance Limited, the lending and investing arm of Bajaj Finserv. Using this health card, customers can divide the cost of 800+ medical treatments, including elective and non-elective procedures, and pay for them in No Cost EMIs. These EMIs can then be repaid comfortably over a period of 24 months.
These treatments and procedures can be availed across a network of 5,500+ healthcare partners, which include multi-specialty hospitals and clinics, spread across 1000+ Indian cities. What's more, is that existing Bajaj Finserv customers can get a pre-approved offer of up to Rs. 4 lakh with which they can pay for these treatments.
Here's the list of a range of treatments that can be converted into No Cost EMIs-
General/ vascular/ cardiac surgeries
