IMA Puts Forward Demands To Govt Ahead Of Budget


New Delhi: The funds for the Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojna (AB-PMJAY) should be used exclusively for the private sector for strategic purchase and creating a retainer system and not for critical gaps in the funding of government hospitals, the IMA has suggested.

In its proposal to the government for consideration in the upcoming Union Budget, the Indian Medical Association (IMA) has said deficit funding is the most important cause behind the lack of penetration of the AB-PMJAY.

If the funding has to be raised to at least the CGHS (Central Government Health Scheme) level, then the amount required is around Rs 1.6 lakh crore, the doctors’ body said.
