The package may or may not include the cost of the tests.

In the case of thalassemia, oral medications are prescribed to the patient to help rid the body of the extra iron. The Medicines you consume at the hospital prescribed to you are included in the package. However, any medicines that are consumed outside the hospital are not covered in the package.

Thalassemia is generally treated via blood transfusion, bone marrow transplant, or splenectomy. The duration of the blood transfusion is around 1 to 4 hours, depending on the part of the blood you get and how much you need it. In the case of a bone marrow transplant and splenectomy, expect to spend 30 to 60 days in the hospital for your transplant.  If you have to stay in the hospital for the surgery, it will be covered in the package. You need to consult your doctor to get the best treatment plan for you.

Expect to consume life-long medicines for thalassemia treatment and it is also vital to get follow-ups with your doctor at a regular interval to avoid any emergency. Your doctor will recommend a daily dose of multivitamins and vitamin tablets as well.
