New Delhi: Glamyo Health, a healthcare brand that specialises in elective and cosmetic surgeries, has announced a collaboration with Milaap to provide surgical treatments to marginalised communities earning less than Rs 20,000 per month. With a vision to change the dysfunctional healthcare system in India, the brand looks forward to facilitating the required surgical help to old-age homes and orphans, labourers, migrant workers, rickshaw pullers, auto-rickshaw drivers, house-helps, security guards, drivers, vegetable and fruit vendors, tea-sellers and anyone who cannot afford the treatment.
“At Glamyo Health we are extremely glad to have joined hands with Milaap to launch an initiative #healthcareforall. While more than 80 per cent of people in India do not have insurance support, they depend on their immediate earnings to cater for daily expenses, leaving no savings to bear the medical costs. Glamyo Health envisions positively impacting the lives of millions of people suffering from pain and discomfort, ensuring that no one is denied the opportunity to live a healthy life due to financial constraints,” says Archit Garg, Co-founder, Glamyo Health.
The collaboration of Glamyo Health and Milaap to launch the #healthcareforall campaign is applicable under the following conditions:
- Patients’ medical conditions make it difficult for them to work productively.
- Patients must be under the age of 50.
- It should only be possible to curtail a patient’s ailment through surgery based on the doctor’s recommendation
- The monthly income of a household should not exceed Rs 20,000.
- The patient has no insurance coverage (group or individual).
- The patient is ineligible for any government programme (Ayushman Bharat, CGHS, ESI, state subsidies, etc.).
- The cost of treatment should be less than Rs 3 lakhs.
For us, it is just a small contribution, but it can save someone’s life. For the patients who are untreated because of financial constraints, it can be a breadwinner situation. Through this initiative, Glamyo Health wants to extend all the medical support we can to enhance the medical standards of our country. We believe that through this #healthcareforall campaign with Milaap, we will be able to work progressively towards our mission of ensuring quality surgical care for all,” says Dr Preet Pal Thakur, Co-Founder, Glamyo Health.
With 300+ co-branded hospitals, Glamyo Health is a full-stack healthcare service provider enabling patients with a hassle-free experience from admission to discharge. Glamyo offers the most advanced surgical procedures and specialises in treating conditions, like Piles/Fissure/Fistula, Hernia, Kidney Stones, Gallbladder Stones, Enlarged Prostate, Lipoma, Painful Gynecomastia, Cataract, Diagnostics, Varicose Veins, Knee Replacement, and many other conditions. As elective surgery is essential, delay can cause serious medical conditions or pose a threat to life. Given the same, Glamyo Health shares the belief with Milaap that no one should be denied access to healthcare, particularly due to a shortage of funds. Milaap is the largest free crowdfunding platform in India for personal and social causes. Anyone in India can use it to raise money for healthcare, education, sports, disaster relief, and other personal causes.
“The pandemic has taught us the value of healthcare, and it was heartwarming to see everyone banding together and taking a stand to help those in need. Glamyo Health’s collaboration with us has launched a ground-breaking initiative to raise funds to provide timely healthcare to those who require it urgently but lack funds,” says Mayukh Choudhury, Co-Founder & CEO, Milaap.
Glamyo Health also collaborates with various financing stakeholders, such as insurance aggregators/EMI partners, to provide patients with single-window clearance for their healthcare financing needs. Glamyo Health has ambitious plans for the future by giving relief to 2,000 patients and reaching 45,000 lives every month. Over the next two years, Glamyo is motivated to mark its footprints in 45+ cities, add more than 500 healthcare providers and 400+ highly experienced surgeons/doctors to its platform and arrange 100 Mn USD in patient financing.
