Under the Ayushman scheme, the packages for treatment of a total of 409 diseases including cancer, heart have increased. With this, private hospitals will not refuse the treatment of patients and people will get great relief. Treatment rates have been increased from 10% to more than 100%. Ayushman scheme has been started to provide free treatment facilities to the common people. Under this scheme, people get free treatment up to Rs One Lakh.

While the facility of unlimited cashless treatment is being given to government employees and pensioners. Due to the low rate of packages under the Ayushman scheme, there was a problem in treatment many times. Especially big hospitals were not joining the scheme due to fewer packages. In view of this problem, the State Health Agency was making efforts to increase the package.

After this, now the National Health Agency has increased the rates of treatment. State Health Agency chairman DK Kotia said that the rates of the package of 409 diseases have been increased from 10 percent to 100 percent. In some diseases, this increase is more than 100 percent. He informed that the rates have been increased in the treatment of cancer, heart disease, orthopedics, gynecology, and general surgery.

Something like this Increased

Till now the rate of one lakh 19 thousand rupees was fixed in Ayushman Yojana for valve replacement in heart patients. It has now been increased to 1.5 lakh. Similarly, the rates of other heart procedures have also been increased. Till now 11 thousand was fixed on the treatment of Appendix, which has now been made 19 thousand. 22 thousand rupees were fixed for the operation of stones in the gallbladder, which has now been increased to 28 thousand. Similarly, the rate of treatment of cancer and other 409 diseases has been increased.

The private hospital will join

One of the major demands of the state employees was to increase the package under Ayushman Yojana. Now the employees will also get relief due to the increase in the package. The biggest advantage of this will be that private hospitals will not refuse treatment under the scheme. Hospitals that were not joining the scheme are also expected to join.

New rates will be applicable till October 31

State Health Agency Chief Executive Officer Arunendra Singh Chauhan said that the new rates of the package will be updated on the IT system of the National Health Authority by 31 October 2021.
