NHA Express Private Hospital Empanelment under Ayushman Bharat Yojana
National Health Authority (NHA) launches express empanelment to bring large number of private hospitals under Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (AB-PMJAY). This empanellment of private hospitals will ensure continued essential treatment for serious illnesses like cancer and heart ailments. This decision is taken after recent one of bringing testing and treatment of COVID-19 under AB-PMJAY scheme. The treatment of Coronavirus would be carried out as per protocols and guidelines of ICMR.
In the current Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, several medical colleges, civil hospitals and district hospitals are being converted as dedicated COVID-19 facilities. So Hospital Empanelment Module (HEM) Lite is launched for patients suffering from serious illnesses, such as cancer, cardiac issues and diabetes.

Treatment For Serious Illnesses in Ayushman Bharat PM-JAY

To increase our capacity to serve beneficiaries of PMJAY Scheme, the central govt. has started express empanelment of private hospitals on a temporary basis. Govt. is reaching out to states, hospital associations and healthcare industry bodies with this new proposal. The new mechanism will onboard private hospitals through a simple, quick and seamless system on a temporary basis.
All such hospitals have the choice whether to provide regular treatment for serious illnesses such as cancer and cardiac illnesses under the scheme. Moreover, these hospitals can even convert themselves into COVID-19 only hospitals providing dedicated testing and treatment to COVID-19 patients.
