The National Health Authority implementing the Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana today revised the rates of 400 health benefit packages offered under the cashless hospitalisation plan, including the black fungus treatment.

In the revised version, rates of some packages have been increased by 20 per cent to 400 per cent. Around 400 procedure rates have been revised and one additional medical management package on black fungus added, said the Centre.

Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya said, “The revised version will strengthen the empanelled hospitals to provide better healthcare services to beneficiaries under the Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana. The revised packages for oncology will enhance cancer care for the beneficiaries.”

The revised plan includes radiation oncology, medical management procedures such as dengue, acute febrile illness, surgical package treatment for black fungus and right/left heart catheterisation.

Rs50L insurance for anganwari workers

The Centre on Tuesday expanded the scope of the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana to cover anganwari workers and helpers with Rs 50 lakh insurance cover each in case they succumb to Covid in the line of duty. So far, the insurance was available only to health workers on Covid duty.
