Ayushman scheme in Punjab: Treatment is not available for a month, till now 50 thousand people have returned from hospitals

Sick newborns are being affected the most by the private hospitals not providing treatment under the scheme. Health department sources said that the state’s infant mortality rate has also increased due to lack of availability of newborn care in the government system.

Ayushman scheme has become a reality in Punjab. Under this scheme, 40 lakh people are not getting treatment for a month. So far, more than 50 thousand patients have returned from hospitals without treatment. In fact, due to non-payment of more than 100 crore dues of the scheme, private hospitals have stopped the treatment of Ayushman patients.

Punjab is facing financial crisis these days. The state has a debt of lakhs of crores of rupees. Due to the debtor Punjab, the Ayushman scheme being operated in the state is also being adversely affected. Due to non-payment of more than Rs 100 crore of 700 private hospitals registered in the state under the scheme, the management has stopped the treatment of patients under the scheme.

It is a matter of concern that most of these thousands of patients are patients who are suffering from serious diseases. A senior health department official said that poor beneficiaries cannot afford treatment in private hospitals without Ayushman Yojana. The treatment of these serious diseases is not possible in the government system. 

The infant mortality rate has increased, due to non
-delivery of treatment under the scheme by private hospitals, sick newborns are being affected the most. Health department sources said that the state’s infant mortality rate has also increased due to lack of availability of newborn care in the government system. The private hospital management says that due to non-payment of dues for a long time, they were forced to postpone the scheme.

We will clear the dues of private hospitals in the coming two weeks. It is expected that soon the health insurance scheme in private hospitals will be fully operational.  Ajay Sharma, Principal Secretary, Health and Family Welfare Department
