Private hospitals say rates under Ayushman Bharat not viable

New Delhi : Senior executives from some private hospitals met officials of  Niti Aayog and health ministry on Friday over the issue of fixing prices of some critical procedures under government’s ambitious ‘Ayushman Bharat’, saying the rates are not viable for them. 

 “It appears that, overall, no scientific basis has been applied to arrive at the rates. Under these conditions, you may kindly appreciate that private healthcare providers would not be able to sustain themselves in providing quality healthcare unless the rates are reasonable and scientifically arrived at,” said a letter from Association of Healthcare Providers (India) to the CEO of Ayushman Bharat, Indu Bhushan.
