Mandsaur (Madhya Pradesh): A review meeting of health department was held in district panchayat meeting hall under chairmanship of MP Sudhir Gupta on Monday. At the meeting, MP Sudhir Gupta said Ayushman card holders should get 100 per cent benefit at the time of hospitalisation. More than 5 lakh cards have been made in Mandsaur district so far.
Remaining eligible beneficiaries can get their card made at Common Service Centre or gram panchayat. The government hospitals registered under the Ayushman Bharat Scheme include District Hospital Mandsaur, Civil Hospital Garoth and Community Health Centre Shamgarh. Patients admitted in these hospitals get benefit of Ayushman Bharat Yojana.
MP Sudhir Gupta said that the Patient Welfare Committee should pass the claim under Ayushman scheme so that people do not have to depend on the central and state governments every time. At the meeting, MP Gupta also directed officials regarding the treatment of Covid patients and said that complete arrangement of oxygen and medicines should be ensured to the patients.
He said facilities should also be provided for treatment of Covid patients at the Rural Health Centres. Survey should be done fast in the villages and awareness programmes on corona should be conducted in rural areas, he added. “Information about other seasonal diseases including black fungus should also be given so that they can be treated on time,” he further added. MP Gupta also praised the work being done by the health department.
At the meeting, collector Manoj Pushp directed that the patients who are admitted under the Ayushman Bharat Scheme in Civil Hospital Bhanpura Community Health Centres at Dhundadka, Nagri, Sitamau, Suwasara, Malhargarh and Narayangarh should start getting benefits.
