Transforming India’s Health Sector: Modi Government’s 9-Year Achievement

Modi Government's

Union Home Minister Amit Shah stated that over the past nine years, the Modi government has extensively transformed India’s healthcare infrastructure, ranging from primary to tertiary levels. Furthermore, the government has taken measures to ensure that the underprivileged receive free treatment of up to Rs 5 lakh. Shah emphasized that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has spearheaded this movement towards a future where healthcare is no longer considered a privilege but a fundamental right.

Shah further highlighted the significant role of technology in making healthcare easily accessible to citizens. Through the utilization of technology, various aspects such as Covid vaccination, telemedicine, hospital registration, and access to health records have become readily available at citizens’ fingertips.

The Ayushman Bharat scheme stands out as a key healthcare initiative by the Modi government. It provides a defined benefit cover of Rs 5 lakh per family per year for eligible individuals. This coverage extends to nearly all secondary care and a majority of tertiary care procedures. The scheme ensures inclusivity by removing caps on family size and age, particularly benefiting women, children, and the elderly. Additionally, it encompasses pre- and post-hospitalisation expenses, with coverage for pre-existing conditions from the policy’s commencement. The scheme also includes a designated transport allowance per hospitalization for beneficiaries.
