On his last day in office Wednesday Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Dr Harshdeep Kamble signed a lengthy report sent to the National Pharmaceutical Pricing Authority (NPPA) asking for a price cap on balloon and guiding catheters which the report said were fetching private hospitals massive profit margins In February the central regulatory body had capped prices of stents The pricing authority soon received complaints of price hike in non-stent components in hospital bills Currently catheters used for life-saving angioplasty procedures are drug-notified medical devices under the Drug and Cosmetics Act 1940 but their prices have not been capped A detailed study of 12 hospitals distributors and importers by the FDA in Maharashtra Delhi and Chennai found that private hospitals were earning a profit margin of 25 to 472 per cent on six varieties of balloon catheter and 50 to 529 per cent on four brands of guiding catheter For instance if the manufacturing (or landing) cost of balloon catheter is Rs 5918 for distributors and a hospital purchases it for Rs 7950 the catheter is sold at Rs 22000 to the patient according to what the FDA report observed in case of Fortis hospital (Mulund) The hospitals inspected include Fortis hospital (Mulund) Hiranandani Healthcare (Vashi) Jupiter (Thane) Wockhardt (Nagpur) BSES Jaslok Asian Heart Institute and three other hospitals in Mumbai and one each in Pune and Aurangabad According to FDA officials the collection of data for the last four hospitals is still under process “But we found that eight of the 12 hospitals were storing medical devices on unlicenced premises Show-cause notices have been issued to them” said FDA Commissioner Kamble The FDA conducted inspections of importers in Chennai and Delhi earlier this month and found that their profit margin for balloon catheters ranged between 17 and 200 per cent The margin varied between 20 and 211 per cent for distributors The hospitals earn the maximum profits despite pricing catheters below or at par Maximum Retail Price (MRP) gaining as high as 529 per cent profit on one catheter according to the report The MRP of catheters ranges between Rs 20000 and Rs 28000 “There is no price cap And hospitals cannot be held accountable for that But since it is drug notified medical device our report explains huge profits made at each level” said Assistant Commissioner Madhuri Pawar The inspections were carried out by a team of 10 drug inspectors At least seven hospitals were found reusing catheters after sterilisation The FDA report recommended NPPA on regulation of prices of balloon and guiding catheters fixed profit margin in supply chain right from importer to hospital and inclusion of catheter under the National List of Essential Medicines “Regulation on prices of the notified medical devices on every level is required on top priority” the report read Speaking to The Indian Express NPPA Chairman Bhupendra Singh said: “This comes under the purview of the health ministry and we cannot cap prices on our own” He added that he was yet to read the Maharashtra FDA report When contacted the inspected hospitals claimed that they were charging patients below the MRP “We offer angioplasty under a package cost and catheter cost is not separately listed in the bill” said Dr Ajay Thakker CEO of Jupiter hospital adding that medical devices were stored on licenced premises Dr K Sujatha centre head for Wockhardt hospital (Nagpur) said “We have received the observation of FDA and we will comply accordingly But catheter cost is always part of the package” A spokesperson from Fortis and Hiranandani said: “We have no official communication from the FDA on this We are a law abiding organisation and continue to be bound by regulatory and ethical medical guidelines as mandated by various agencies We find the query presented unsubstantiated” Dr Ashok Mehta Medical Director of BSES hospital said: “Ours is a charitable hospital and patients are never overcharged The prices are always below MRP” Similar was the response from the Asian Heart Institute authorities who said they “do not sell anything above MRP in the hospital or violate the trust of patients” Jaslok hospital spokesperson said: “We don’t charge 100 per cent margin on cath consumables as alleged Instead we charge only 8-12 per cent mark on our cost price As far as stent is concerned we are not exceeding the prescribed limit set by the authority”He added that medical devices were sold from licenced premises on the sixth floor and only some stock

said they have submitted a report to senior officers of units concerned (Representational Image) Related News A Rs 200 challan on a TSR (three-seater auto rickshaw) driver prompted a six-month investigation against officials of the vigilance and traffic police departments eventually leading to a departmental enquiry being ordered against three police personnel More alarmingly it has led to concerns that someone in the vigilance department could be “leaking” information to traffic police personnel about complaints against them An officer of the vigilance department confirmed the incident involving the driver and said they have submitted a report to senior officers of units concerned “We have asked them to take action against two traffic police personnel and departmental action against the officer of the vigilance department” the officer said The case dates back to April 9 when the driver was issued a Rs 200 challan for violating traffic rules at Outer Ring Road He paid Rs 500 to an officer of sub-inspector rank It was only when he returned home and saw the challan that he realised he was supposed to get Rs 300 from the officer The driver then called the vigilance department helpline to complain about the problem Within two hours the driver received a call purportedly from the same officer who told him he had kept Rs 300 by mistake and asked him to come and collect it The driver collected the money the next day Subsequently when the vigilance department called the driver asking him to file a formal complaint he told them he had already received the money This raised alarm bells in the vigilance department According to sources the special commissioner of police (vigilance) ordered a departmental enquiry to find out how the traffic officer got to know about the call made to the vigilance helpline Sources said hours after the enquiry was ordered a special team of the vigilance department was formed and they started a probe “The team headed by an ACP-rank officer started questioning duty operators (DOs) of the vigilance department especially those who were present when the call from the driver came in However no one admitted to their involvement” police sources said The team then scanned call detail records of their landline as well as of the traffic officer in question “The first breakthrough came when police found that a call was made from the vigilance department landline to a traffic officer Minutes later a call was received on the landline from the officer who had challaned the driver” police sources said Armed with this information the DOs were questioned again During investigation it came to light that four DOs were on duty when the driver made the call “Eventually an officer of assistant sub-inspector rank admitted to his involvement He said he had called a traffic inspector who then informed the officer who had issued the challan The officer had then taken the complainant’s mobile number from the DO in question” police sources said adding that officers are now looking at whether similar help has been extended to traffic police officers by the vigilance department in the past For all the latest Delhi News
