Bhubaneshwar: Around 200 private clinics and nursing homes have decided to opt-out of the State Government’s flagship healthcare scheme, Biju Swasthya Kalyan Yojana (BSKY), that provides health protection to economically vulnerable families.
The mentioned private clinics have detached themselves from the BSKY scheme due to non-reimbursement of the costs incurred by them on the patients taking medical treatment under the scheme.
According to Indramani Jena, convenor of All Odisha Private Medical Establishment Forum, the individual dues of various organisations ranges from Rs 5 lakh to 50 lakh. Small hospitals are facing problems to run their services in such a scenario which has forced them to take this decision.
Along with it the there are also pending dues of Biju Krishak Kalyan Yojana and Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana which need to be cleared, said Indramani.
