The IRDA (Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority) has initiated a process to provide unique identity numbers to hospitals.

According to IRDA, the objective is to help identify hospitals and collect information regarding various charges imposed by them on different medical procedures.

Speaking at a summit organised by Indian Merchants Chamber in Mumbai on Monday, IRDA chairman TS Vijayan said that the unique identity number will be integrated with the pin code of the area and the name of hospitals.

“Once this process is over, the next step will be to see what are the charges these hospitals charge on patients for various treatments,” Vijayan added.
