State’s Health Insurance Scheme Empanels Super speciality Eye Hospital The Retina Centre


BY TC News Desk

Agartala, 11th January 2024: Tripura, being one of the most literate states in India, has always witnessed strong public awareness about the importance of eye care. However, the remoteness of the state stopped people of Tripura from accessing cutting edge eye treatment facilities available in other parts of the country.

But the situation has changed as super-speciality eye care infrastructures are now closer to home. And the Government of Tripura has opened up to including private healthcare providers under health insurance schemes.

As part of this ongoing initiative, Guwahati-based renowned super-speciality eye hospital, The Retina Centre, has recently got empanelled under the Tripura Health Assurance Scheme. It is a New Year’s surprise for people who are planning to undergo critical eye treatments. It would help them get their eyes checked and access The Retina Centre’s cutting edge diagnostic facilities at no extra cost.

Health insurance schemes are effective ways to extend cutting edge diagnostics and treatments to deserving people. Being a prominent super-speciality eye hospital in NE India, we are committed to reaching every person with eye conditions. We are thankful to the Tripura Govt for offering us this opportunity.” – Dr. S.U. Ahmed, Senior Consultant & Founder, The Retina Centre

Modern innovations in medical science and technologies have made diagnostics of eye problems and their treatments much more accessible. Costs of these treatments have also gone down significantly because of economies of scale. However, such treatments are still beyond the budget of millions of Indians. Government hospitals often remain overcrowded with patients. To bridge this gap, both the central and the state governments across India are empanelling prominent private hospitals under health insurance schemes.

The Retina Centre is a pioneering super-speciality eye hospital based in Guwahati, Assam. They are committed to “providing quality eye care services of international standards at an affordable cost” to people living even in the hard-to-reach corners of North-East India. The hospital offers state-of-the-art diagnostic facilities and treatments for common eye conditions to complicated eye diseases. As recognition of the Hospital’s commitment to quality eye care at affordable costs, Government of Tripura empanelled The Retina Centre under health assurance schemes for employees, their families and other people.

The Hospital is also empanelled with other prominent health schemes for govt employees and public sector undertakings, like 

  • CGHS (Govt scheme)
