Very good news for the people of Indore as almost all of us know that National Health Protection Scheme has launched but never come but this time it is going to take off in the Indore city. As per the information available, there are only 9 private hospitals, nursing home and clinics who operates under the policy scheme in the city. According to our examination, hospitals situated in the city have already selected unique packages in it. Information about veteran hospitals in the state was published on the Ayushman Bharat website on 15th November. In that shockingly we found that four out of nine hospitals are eye hospitals.
We would like to inform you all that this best scheme introduced by the government was announced in September 2018, with an objective to offer Rs. 5 Lakh per year poor family for secondary and tertiary care. One of the shocking incidents happened when Dr Vinod Arora the president of Nursing Home association Indore was questioned for the less number of doctors, for which in reply he said, there are several reasons behind that but out of them, there are two big reasons why there is so low empanelment of doctors.
The foremost reason is that the rates provided under Ayushman Bharat scheme to hospitals are really very low and if they follow this policy they have to face high loss. And the second most big reason is that in this scheme there are few clauses which cause hindrance to private hospitals such as offering food to patients while treatment.
We would like to give some knowledge regarding Ayushman Scheme to all of you. So the first question is why the government wants everyone to register yourself in Ayushman Bharat Scheme. So we would like to tell you the reason behind it, the foremost reason is that the government doesn’t want to provide a free facility for the hospital to those people who can spend money for their treatment. The government only wants to help those poor people who can’t help themself in providing treatment facilities. So, in my point of view, I think it is a good step taken by the government.
