Even if they are public authorities (Govt.Hospitals) the patient or their intimate relations can only get those treatment details as a matter of right, whereas third party can not get any information.

Even in case of private hospitals, a patient and his nearest relations have a right to get the entire treatment as a right, as they are consumers and bound by CP Act.

Honestly, I do not find any difference.  

It is absolutely true that many private nursing homes are minting money through RSBY Scheme or some other govt., scheme, and it is well known fact that even for stomach ache for female they conduct Histrioctomy and for males they conduct operation for Appendecitis .  The way private nursing homes treat this social responsibility is really not proper, and every one want to swindle Government funds.  Now there is improvement.  

i personally feel that any expert can undertake inspection of the bills asking as to how many nursing homes are mostly benefitted and the kind of operations they are doing, and how many are fake etc ?

I am surprised to know the fact from one top officer of insurance company, that every corporate hospitals provide benefits to community workers and PMPs /RMPS LED TV and such expensive appliances as gift for every patient they refer. 

I have many such instances where very rich persons, get enrolled in such scheme by postponing an operation for 15 to 30days, first become members and then use this free service and all this not patient's own idea (Many patients do not know such schemes) and the Hospital authorities suggest such short cuts.

Many such corporate hospitals are worse than Govt. hospitals with these schemes and it is the scheme that is giving permanent, regular income, and that is the reason, though the bills are late they can wait.  Reason, they have huge margin in surgical apparatus, drugs and other scanning /laboratory tests.

Do not think that it is easy to file complaint before CBI.

When you can file Consumer complaint in local district consumer forum for deficiency of services with total costs less than Rs.500/- in all (If the party appears in person to argue his own case), this summary proceedings are more beneficial to you.   Always trust cost effective and local solutions, rather than wasting time and money on wasteful correspondence with agencies like CBI.

You can also file this as grievance before Ministry of Health and pray for taking action.  Also mark a copy to DMO.

(Remember this forum is dedicated for guiding citizens under RTI only, and whether you can complain or not depends on your will and pleasure, as nothing bars in filing complaint, and your complaint according to my knowledge will not be accepted by CBI and they will send to CVC under copy to you, and CVC once again transmits to Ministry of Health and the ministry to DMO, and naturally DMO informs the hospital about the complaint and look for closing the complaint as frivolous)

      Here is what the ministry's response to India Today's RTI reveal:
      No funds have been allocated to five of the approved AIIMS yet. They are situated in Jammu, Kashmir, Bihar, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat. No time frame has been fixed by the cabinet for five AIIMS which are in Jammu, Kashmir, Bihar, Tamil Nadu and Gujarat. Less than 10 per cent of the sanctioned fund has been given to the AIIMs in Uttar Pradesh which is expected to be functional by March 2020. BJP in its manifesto in 2014 had promised to "increase the number of medical and paramedical colleges to make India self-sufficient in human resources, and set up an AIIMS like institute in every state." To find out the status of these 13 AIIMS, India Today filed a Right to Information (RTI) query with the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
