TOG services, NEW DELHI, JUNE 23, 2018: The Indian Medical Association (IMA) has agreed to extend support for better implementation of Ayushman Bharat-National Health Protection Mission (AB-NHPM), especially in the field of empanelment of hospitals, spreading awareness and beneficiary identification process. Dr. Indu Bhushan, CEO, Ayushman Bharat and Dr. R. N. Tandon, Secretary General, Indian Medical Association (IMA) met here on June 22, 2018 to discuss the potential collaboration in implementing Ayushman Bharat.

After the meeting, Dr. Tandon said IMA is proud to be associated with Ayushman Bharat and would be keen to provide help in spreading awareness and developing a larger network of quality service providers especially in Tier 2 & Tier 3 cities. Dr. Bhushan emphasized that IMA is a critical stakeholder in AB-NHPM as private sector role is key to success of AB-NHPM by enhancing the accessibility to quality and patient centric care. Key issues like timely payments to the hospitals, feedback & grievance mechanism, ease of setting up of IT infrastructure at hospitals for paperless transactions were deliberated on, and constructive suggestions were made during the meeting.

Dr. Dinesh Arora, Dy. CEO stated that NABH accreditation is desirable but not essential for the hospitals, since the quality and patient safety would be one of the key principle of AB-NHPM. He also conveyed that based on costing studies to be steered by NITI Aayog, continual adjustment of benefit packages and their rates is proposed. AB-NHPM has been designed to provide financial protection and prevent catastrophic health care expenditures to over ten crore poor and vulnerable families and endow a cover for cashless hospitalization services of upto INR Five lakh per family per year.
