Treatment rates have increased in Ayushman India. The prices of treatment packages running under the scheme have also been increased by 10 to 60 percent. The National Health Authority has added 237 types of new packages in addition to the hike in prices. At the same time, they have been removed from the scheme due to the iteration of the 554 package. Atal Ayushman Uttarakhand Yojana Chairman DK Kotia gave this information.
One year feedback was taken on the plan on the second day in the workshop held at the Manthan Auditorium on Rajpur Road. About 40 hospital representatives attended the workshop objected to the reduced rate of various packages. On this, Kotia said that the rates of bypass surgery, knee-hip implants, appendix, stones in cheek bladder, breast cancer surgery, pacemaker-stent, etc. have been increased. These changes have also been approved by the Governing Board of the NHA. After this, the problem of hospitals will be overcome.
At the same time, he instructed the patients to provide better treatment and not bother in the name of the referrer. He asked to apply to the review on the opening of branches of hospitals on the mountain and if the claim is rejected. During this, CEO Arunendra Singh Chauhan, Dr. Abhishek Tripathi, Dr. Archana Srivastava, etc. were present.
The name will go in the category of ‘Name and Shame’ on fuzzy
Kotia said that the names of the fraudulent hospitals in the Atal Ayushman Uttarakhand scheme will be made public by putting them under the name ‘Name and Shame’. Apart from this, well-functioning hospitals will be included in the category of ‘Name and Fame’. He said that the entire emphasis is on making the scheme 100 percent ‘leak proof’.
ICHI System Linked Plan
For the first time, the Internet Classification of Health Intervention (ICHI) system has been added to give a specific code to every disease in the health insurance scheme. This system was created by the World Health Organization (WHO) to give a special code to the medical procedure.
Nine people admitted every minute
Ayushman Yojana has completed one year. According to the analysis of the last year, nine people have been admitted to the hospital under this scheme every minute across the country. According to data from the National Health Authority, more than 60 percent of the amount was spent on tertiary treatment. These include cardiology, orthopedic, radiation, oncology, cardiothoracic, vascular surgery, and urology, etc.
