Inviting private hospitals to adopt Ayushman Bharat scheme, NITI Aayog member Vinod K Paul said the government has revised rates of 270 health packages under the scheme, some even up to Rs 50,000, in consonance with the interest of stakeholders.
Addressing an interactive session with healthcare fraternity at Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) today, Dr Paul said the scheme has achieved a milestone of adding 50 lakh beneficiaries in the past one year from its launch and they had already paid nearly Rs 15,000 crore under the scheme.
Seeking suggestions from private hospitals, he said they should come forward and adopt the scheme in order to provide benefit to citizens of the country.
Mentioning that the scheme has overachieved its target, he shared that Punjab had a target to cover 14 per cent of the families, but it has added 29 per cent more than its target. With this performance, India has contributed in a big way towards WHO’s mission of bringing a billion people under universal coverage, said Dr Paul.
