A group purchase price of 1056 Yuan medical examination package, but there is sick in the morning, recovered in the afternoon embarrassment.
In November this year, Ms. Chen of Shanghai bought an online health check-up package for the elderly and middle-aged with a price of 1056 yuan, and booked a check-up at the store according to the group purchase instruction telephone. The physical examination included medical, surgical, tumor markers, 11 items of liver function and 3 items of renal function.
On the website, the cheapest health check-up package is only 3,400 yuan, the expensive one is 1,500 yuan, and the middle-aged and old-aged set of 1056 yuan belongs to the upper middle level. Ms. Chen, 32 years old, told reporters that she had compared the package meals of many well-known medical institutions, such as Icon State Guest, Meridian Health, and Ruizi Medical Examination. The price of 1056 yuan in any medical center does not belong to the ranks of low-cost medical examination. She chose expensive ones specially so that the institutions can earn enough money and should not pit me any more.
Later, however, it turned out that she was wrong.
Physical examination report does not agree with the results of the third-class A hospital
During the physical examination, the doctor who underwent neck B-mode ultrasound told Ms. Chen that her thyroid gland was not good and had severe inflammation. B-mode ultrasonography showed a more severe diffuse echo in the thyroid gland. The doctor reminded Ms. Chen, Go to the toll desk on the first floor and add a blood test for thyroid function. No more blood is needed, just pay for it.
During the surgical examination, the surgeon touched the thyroid gland in Ms. Chens neck and reminded her again, You can find nodules in your thyroid gland. At least you have thyroiditis. Go to the first floor to pay for it and check the thyroid function.
This is not the first time that Ms. Chen paid for a blood test for thyroid function at American New Years University. Last November, in the same big health store, B-mode ultrasound showed that she had thyroid nodules. To this end, she paid about 200 yuan for thyroid function tests after the discount.
Every time we say that there is a thyroid problem, check the function, if there is no problem with blood, it doesnt matter. Both of Ms. Chens blood tests showed that her thyroid function was normal.
This year, because of the presence of diffuse echo accompanied by thyroid nodules, Ms. Chen went to the Endocrinology Department of a well-known third-class hospital in Shanghai for re-examination in the afternoon after her physical examination in the morning. After introducing her physical examination to the doctor, the doctor gave her the diagnosis of thyroiditis and asked her to have another B-mode ultrasound and thyroid function examination in the hospital.
This time, the doctor who did B-mode ultrasound told her, Are you thyroiditis? Congratulations, youve recovered. Ms. Chen asked once again whether her thyroid nodules were still there. Doctor B-mode ultrasound told her with great certainty: From the image point of view, your thyroid is normal, no nodules, no inflammation.
Blood test report is the same result, everything is normal. I cant believe that surgeons at the physical examination center in the morning can even feel that I have a large nodule; in the afternoon, regular hospital B-mode ultrasound showed no nodules. It is noteworthy that when Ms. Chen told her family about her experiences, her father, mother, father-in-law and mother-in-law all responded to the above situation. Four elderly people had never suffered from thyroid diseases. All the health check-up packages were purchased online by Ms. Chen for $1056. All of them paid for the thyroid function check-up on the spot during the check-up.
Reporters visited the Meinian University Health Examination Center in Shanghai Pudong Changhang Hospital a few days ago, and saw a long pay team on the first floor. All the people in the queue paid for the thyroid function examination after they bought the medical check-up package and then bought the temporary medical examination items. Six of the nine people in the queue paid for the thyroid function examination.
Similar situation occurred in multiple physical examination institutions
Coincidentally, the same problem also happened to Ms. Lin and her colleagues in Luoyang, Henan Province. It was the thyroid function test that caused the problem.
You have a big problem, diffuse thyroid disease. Ms. Lin still remembers the diagnosis given on the spot by the doctor of B-mode ultrasound when she was examined at the Medical Examination Center of American University in Luoyang. The situation she encountered was almost the same as that of Ms. Chen in Shanghai. Doctor reminded her, You just took the blood and paid for it. You dont need to take any more blood. Have a test.
At the payment office, five or six colleagues came to pay for thyroid function (examination). They didnt feel right. After consulting her brother who worked in the county peoples hospital, Ms. Lin gave up paying the fee and went to the county hospital the next day for re-examination. B-mode ultrasonography and blood tests showed that Ms. Lins thyroid gland was normal.
According to China Consumer Daily, Ms. Shi, a citizen of Nanjing, found right lobe nodules of thyroid with calcification and hypoechoic nodules of right lobe of thyroid with size of 10 mm *8 mm after checking in a health examination center of Meinian University in Nanjing in June this year. But then, when Ms. Shi was reexamined in Jiangsu Peoples Hospital, B-mode ultrasound showed that bilateral thyroid glands have normal shape, clear boundary, smooth surface, normal internal blood flow, and no obvious abnormal lymphatic image in bilateral neck.
In response to this problem, the medical institution in Nanjing responded that the doctor is sick and facial paralysis, back home. In view of the medical report errors, the person in charge said that may be caused by many factors such as doctors technology, medical equipment problems.
Reporters noted that the medical market chaos has long become the focus of public opinion. Previously, Prospective Industry Research Institute released the Health Examination Industry Development Prospects and Investment Forecast Analysis Report, which showed that in 2015, Chinas health examination industry grew to 94 billion yuan at a growth rate of more than 25%, more than double the growth rate of 29.5 billion yuan in 2010, and the compound growth rate of the industry in 2011-2015 reached 21%. The growth rate of the industry is higher than that of the whole medical service industry. It is expected that Chinas health body will grow faster in 2018. The inspection market will reach 188.6 billion yuan.
Does the medical institution earn money by adding extra money?
Some institutions rely on capital to promote the medical examination business, which is to sell the medical examination as a product, collect money from each item, and give a commission according to the total amount of fees. The person in charge of the physical examination center of a public hospital in Shanghai told reporters that for the middle-aged and elderly people, for example, the products purchased by private organizations for about 1,000 yuan may cost 1,200 yuan to 1,300 yuan in public hospitals. It cant lose money, so he wants you to add projects and exert your strength on Jiagong and Gangong, which is most appropriate.
The person in charge said that thyroid diseases mostly occur in women aged 30 to 50. The incidence of liver diseases is higher in men, and both diseases have the characteristics of B-ultrasonography for diagnosis. The set meals of physical examination institutions usually only contain B-ultrasonography, and blood test items are purchased on site.
Reporters interviewed the relevant person in charge of the Department of Health Marketing of the University of America. The person in charge responded that the agency has a strict audit system for the customers medical reports, and customers can consult and answer questions by telephone, online and other means according to the process. In response to the problem of adding thyroid function, the person in charge said, from the perspective of disease screening, thyroid ultrasound and thyroid function combined detection is indeed more appropriate, can not replace each other.
Thyroid function should be a compulsory item, not necessarily a surgical or B-mode ultrasonographic abnormalities to do thyroid function (examination). This person in charge introduced that the incidence of thyroid-related diseases is high at present, so it is suggested that the consumers of physical examination should list this item as a compulsory examination item.
Reporters noted that in recent years, complaints and disputes against private medical institutions continue. Some people sue the medical institutions for failing to detect cancer during the physical examination. Others claim compensation from the medical institutions through the Consumer Association for malicious addition of medical examinations. If you cant find any problems, you should complain; if you cant find any problems, you should also complain after checking in a regular hospital. The head of the physical examination department of the above public hospital told reporters. With the improvement of peoples living standards, physical examination has become an important means of health management for many people every year, but after all, physical examination is not a regular treatment, it can only serve as a reminder and reminder, there will certainly be inaccurate situation, and eventually it is necessary to go to the regular hospital for review and follow-up. The annual report of 2017 released by American New Year Health in the middle of this year shows that physical examination service is the main business of American New Year Health. In 2017, this business realized 6.142 billion yuan of business income, accounting for 98.54% of total income, and gross profit rate is 46.61%.
