In particular, the rural citizens, who remain under immense pressure, have to firstly cover long distances to avail medical facilities and then bear the cost of increasing medical and hospitalization costs. Thus, with the commitment of bringing social inclusion to rural India, Sahaj has associated with Oxxy, to provide discounts up to 40% on medical expenses that cover diagnostics, medicine and hospitalization bills for rural citizens through an Oxxy membership with over 2 Lakh impaneled hospital and pathological centres. The membership is available at all Sahaj centres across India.”

Oxxy’s sole aim is to bridge the gap between affordable healthcare with the masses. Rural India comprising with 70% of the Indian population is still facing issues to access quality, affordable and transparent Healthcare. With Oxxy’s partnership with Sahaj, we aim to provide convenience to every individual/ household for quality health care.
