A physician who diagnosed the disease or currently treating the patient will be the primary recruiter for a patient. He/she may submit an application to BCCF in a prescribed format with recommendation based on the need and eligibility for support. Being the primary reviewer, the physician may refer the following inclusion criteria:
Initial screening of the application will be done by BCCF Governing council and coordinators. This process may take nearly 2 working days The status of application will be intimated to the doctor and parent by mail or telephone.
Once selected, the case will be presented to the `International Panel of Doctors’ for their advice.
Based on the recommendations of expert panel and primary physician, final decisions on additional diagnosis and treatment will be taken. An overall budget will be estimated and advertised through the web for fund-raising.
As soon as we receive financial support for a particular patient, it will be transferred to the patient through the primary doctor/ hospital / or diagnostics centre. The payment will be made on actual expenses related to diagnosis, treatment and hospitalization.
