Currently some finance companies offer the option of medical loans. If your paper work and CIBIL score etc are in order, then you can avail the facility of a medical loan and pay back in smaller monthly EMIs. This makes it easier to make payments as patients do not need to shell out a lump sum of money at one go.
Some other companies offer options of saving money for your surgery in smaller sums over a period of a few months. This way once you have decided to get surgery done, you can deposit money in smaller amounts over a period of some time and save for your surgery.
