Chief Secy warns stern action against hospitals denying treatment under BSKY Card

Bhubaneswar, June 6: Odisha Chief Secretary PK Jena on Thursday warned of stern action against the hospitals denying cashless treatment to the patients under the Biju Swasthya Kalyan Yojna(BSKY).

On acknowledging a number of complaints regarding refusal of utilization of the BSKY Cards, Jena through a video message Jena clarified that the BSKY Scheme is continuing and no hospital can deny treatment to any beneficiaries. 

“The BSKY scheme is yet functioning and the cashless treatment at all empanelled hospitals is also available. No BSKY-empanelled hospital can show negligence towards the treatment of beneficiaries and make premature discharge of patients.  The BSKY Yojana will continue until the new government issues notifications on the matter,” Jena found saying in the video message.

If any such hospitals don’t cooperate with the BSKY beneficiaries, people can dial the help line ‘104’ to lodge their complaints. The Health and Family Welfare Department will initiate action against the concerned health centre, Jena assured.

Worth mentioning, media reports came up that some private hospitals are reportedly refusing treatment to patients under BSKY scheme in the pretext of transition of government. 

Similarly, the Health Department clarified through ‘X’ that  “Hospitals have been sensitized to continue treatment to beneficiaries without any disruption. All claims raised by hospitals will be paid by SHAS as before,” 

The Health Department also earlier clarified that all BSKY beneficiaries will continue to avail uninterrupted cashless healthcare services with the BSKY Cards, issued by the state government.
