Mangaluru: ‘Produce Aadhar card to get free treatment in private hospitals’ – Minister Kota Poojary


Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (EP)

Mangaluru, Jul 13: "Complete medical treatment is being provided in private hospitals also under Ayushman Bharat scheme," said minister Kota Srinivas Poojary.

Speaking to Daijiworld, he said, "Ayushman Bharat cardholders are entitled to complete medical treatment even in private hospitals. Patients need to only carry Aadhar cards. We have entered into an agreement with hospitals for free medical treatment even if a patient has ration cards either APL or BPL."

"Arogya Mitra is assigned to all the hospitals from our department. There is a help desk in every hospital. It is sufficient if an Aadhar card is shown there. Free treatment will be provided if they are found to be corona infected," he added.

"We monitor the situation after visiting all the hospitals. Hence, we will ensure that people are not put to hardship during the week-long lockdown. We also request the people to cooperate," Kota said.

"There are more than 2,000 beds in private hospitals at present. Hostel facilities will be provided when necessary,” he said.

    Only solution to the healthcare mess in India is Nationalization to the extent of 50 percent of private healthcare and bring in the PPP model for Government healthcare. This will improve the facilities in government healthcare care institutions and prevent private healthcare from exploitation of the public.

    DK has seven medical colleges and numerous Pvt nursing homes , there should be absolutely no problem in providing healthcare to Covid Pts . It is a good idea to have a government appointed person to have a health desk in these hospitals to monitor the availability of beds both in the ICUs and wards / rooms .

    What about the people who are not under the Ayushmann Bharat scheme? Anyone can correct me if I am wrong but this scheme is only for BPL card holders but those without BPL card have to pay from their pockets in Pvt Hospitals and looking at the number of cases in Mangalore or Bangalore very soon the beds in Govt hospitals will be full. What can a person from such category do now? Whos going to help folks who for no mistake of theirs have to pay for some country's mistake.

    Hope you have "Aadhar card"
    As per Govt order Aadhar card of State address is sufficient to get free treatment as per ministers statement

    Rathan, stop believing blindly as always.

    Minister did not mention all will get free treatment just by showing Adhaar card.
    They need to have Ayushaman Bharat Scheme only those with this scheme are eligible and they can show Adhaar card as ID for the same. Rest all pay from pockets for no mistake of ours...!
