Lanka Hospitals offers special packages for Agrahara Beneficiaries on eye care services for 1st time


Comments / {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}} Views / Wednesday, 8 November 2017 00:00


Leading healthcare provider Lanka Hospitals has extended its extinctive service by offering Agrahara Beneficiaries special benefits for eye care treatments for the first time in Sri Lanka. The new venture will help public sector employees to obtain superior quality eye care treatments such as Cataract surgery and the LASIK Laser eye treatment for conveniently affordable rates at the Lanka Hospitals. 

Agrahara insurance scheme was established by National Insurance Trust Fund Board Act No 28 of 2006 with the Ministry of National Policies and Economic Affairs, to uplift the living standards of government employees and their families island-wide. Nearly 700,000 government employees and their dependants are entitled to premier healthcare services from private hospitals under Agrahara insurance scheme. Driven by the strong sense of corporate social responsibility, Lanka Hospitals has partnered with the NITF since 2010 and has continued to offer superior healthcare services leaving no additional burdens or anxieties on individuals attached to the public sector.  

As the most preferred and trusted hospital by the NITF and its beneficiaries, Lanka Hospitals facilitates a state-of-the-art Eye Care Centre with LASIK Laser Eye Surgeries, Cataract Surgeries and other related all eye surgeries and procedures where comprehensive procedures and surgeries are conducted. The centre also provides the services of internationally recognised and highly experienced Consultant physicians and Specialist Doctors. Operating on par with international standards, the LASIK Laser Eye Surgery Unit is backed by a team of highly skilled technicians and optometrists. The package prices are specially designed exclusively for Agrahara beneficiaries and are unmatchable in the market. 

Commenting on the matter, Lanka Hospitals Group Chief Executive Officer Dr. Prasad Medawatta noted, “The affiliation paves the way for more transparent costs, thus letting them prepare their finances accordingly. The collaboration between the NITF and Lanka Hospitals was particularly encouraging as both entities are under the auspices of the same government entity, and are therefore able to better understand and efficiently serve the particular needs of the public sector employees.”

Furthermore Lanka Hospitals exclusively facilitates a range of offers such as admission deposit being exempted, 10% discount on room rates and laboratory services and 5% discount on radiology procedures, a Rs. 25,000 discount for heart surgeries and procedures (CABG/PTCA) and the hospital fee will be waived off for three post-surgery consultations. An exclusive facilitation counter is available including an email address agrahara@lankahospitals.com dedicated to all Agrahara Members.

Expressing his views on Agrahara insurance scheme, the Chief Executive Officer of the National Insurance Trust Fund Sanath C. De Silva said, “The scheme empowers public sector employees by providing them financial protection against unforeseen health problems. Our main objective is healthcare and well-being of people who are employed by the government. Standardisation of medical surgery is our long term objective and our collaboration with Lanka Hospitals is an initial move in that direction. The rates we offer are unmatched by the private sector.”

This extended insurance scheme is a commendable achievement by Lanka Hospitals confirming their status as the number one healthcare provider in Sri Lanka.
