According to the first post of India, the cost of treating new crowns varies from state to state. In some states, the government pays for the new crown, while others pay according to the bed chosen by the patients. Public hospitals are generally free of charge, but patients are required to have insurance (many poor people in India do not have them). The prices of private hospitals are high. Although several states have set upper limits on the cost of new crown treatment (for example, the daily charge for severe cases should not exceed 15000 rupees), some hospitals still charge too much.
