Mega healthcare scheme game changer: Niti Aayog

NITI AYOG

AMN / NEW Delhi

Niti Aayog Vice-Chairman Rajiv Kumar has said, the newly announced mega healthcare scheme is a game changer and revenue from the 1 per cent additional cess would be enough to meet the funding needs. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in his budget for 2018-19 announced the National Health Protection Scheme (NHPS) announced to provide health insurance cover 5 lakh rupees to over 10 crore poor and vulnerable families.

Talking to an agency Mr Kumar regretted that a completely baseless and false propaganda is being spread by the opposition leaders against the ambitious scheme of the Modi government. On funding of the scheme envisaging to cover about 50 crore people, the Niti Aayog vice-chairman said the allocation for the health sector has been raised by 6,000 crore rupees.
Moreover, there is an existing facility of 2,000 crore rupees for the ongoing Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana (RSBY) scheme.
