CM justified govt decision to revise healthcare (9/11/2019) 
The Tripura chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb today gave a detailed clarification on the decision of the state government to revise the health care tariffs in the state, a move which was strongly objected by the Opposition parties. Describing the criticisms as “baseless”, Deb said the “confusion” created by the opposition is inimical to the interests of the people even as he called upon the opposition to play a constructive role. Addressing a press conference at the Civil Secretariat, the chief minister justified that the notification issued by Health and Family Welfare department, revising the tariff for all services including Intensive Care Unit (ICU), cabin charges, oxygen cylinders, diagnoses and diet, will have a total decrease of about 35 % compared to the fee charts of Health department during the previous government. He explained that among 337 different kinds of pathological tests and services of health department, altogether 51 items were repeated in the notification and now 286 tests are only chargeable, which have decreased by about 35 % compared to rates in force during the previous government. OPD registration fee has been made chargeable with minimum rate for computerization process, which is applicable for one month and patients under Priority House Hold (PHH) bill will be covered by their Ayushman Bharat Yojana cards. “All the revised rates of Health department are completely free of cost for the patients under Ayushman Bharat Yojana as part of the National Health Protection Scheme and majority of rate charts are completely free for Antyodaya Anna Yojana (AAY), though APL (Above property limit) patients have to pay minimum charges for registration, admission fee etc,” he pointed out. Deb added that as per the 2011 economic census, Tripura has 4.7 lakh families under Priority House Hold (PHH) and 1.8 lakh families under AAY, so altogether 5.78 lakh families of the state will get all the health services free of cost, even some rates have been decreased by about 35 % compared to previous government’s rate chart.
