SGPGI opens a separate account for AB-PMJAY beneficiaries
The virtual account opened by SGPGI has been named Pradhan Mantri Jan Aarogya Yojana to ensure the successful implementation of the Ayushman Bharat-Pradhan Mantri Jan Aarogya Yojana Center (AB-PMJAY)
In order to ensure the successful implementation of the Ayushman Bharat-Pradhan Mantri Jan Aarogya Yojana (AB-PMJAY) Center at Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGIMS), a separate account has been opened by the first medical institute for beneficiaries.
The Ayushman Bharat Yojana aims to help economically vulnerable citizens who need healthcare facilities. It was rolled out in September 2018 to cover approximately 50 million citizens of the country.
The virtual account was named Pradhan Mantri Jan Aarogya Yojana. Two separate reception and registration desks have been reserved and adequately flagged for PMJAY at the PMSSY block, SGPGIMS and Apex Trauma Center, according to a press release from the institute.
It is added that at SGPGIMS, beneficiaries receive an approximate estimate of the expenses made by the attending physician based on the provisional diagnosis, based on which specific package is blocked and registered on the portal of AB-PMJAY.
In order to ensure the continuity of the cashless service and to face all the additional costs beyond the flat rate for the diagnosis/care/treatment of the beneficiary, another account is opened and an additional amount of 25% on the lump sum is paid to the beneficiaries. So far, more than 6,400 AB-PMJAY beneficiaries have received treatment at PGI. It amounts to more than ₹13 crores.
To commend the exemplary contribution of SGPGIMS under the AB-PMJAY program in SGPGIMS, Dr. R Harsvardhan, Nodal Officer, AB-PMJAY and Head of Hospital Administration was awarded by Sangeeta Singh, CEO-SACHIS, AB- PMJAY, Uttar Pradesh.
