My thread on WHY @narendramodi ji's @AyushmanNHA (आयुष्मान भारत-प्रधान मंत्री जन आरोग्य योजना) is MY personal reason for #ModiOnceMore
Y'all know that @AyushmanNHA provides Family Floating Coverage of ₹5 Lakhs per family and that its the world's largest #PublicHealth Insurance scheme . What then is the USP of this scheme? Here are a few:
1. It subsumes two earlier schemes, Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana, and Senior citizen health Insurance Scheme, along with a few others.
Benefit: CLARITY in END-POINT DELIVERY! No more confusion as to whether you're eligible.
2. CASHLESS and PAPERLESS, and, you DO NOT NEED TO SIGN UP FOR IT.
All it needs is that you belong to the list of people belonging to the Socio Economic and Caste Census of 2011.
So, what works as an ID?
#Aadhar does, so does your #VoterID card (another reason to get it :)
(This is in STARK contrast to #ObamaCare, signing up for which was a horrendously onerous task. @BW very bluntly called #ObamaCare launch a Failure) businessweek.com/articles/2013-…
3. Taking a piece outta @NHSuk (UK's #PublicHealth Insurance scheme), it covers pre and post-hospitalisation expenses. What does that include?
A. Transportation allowance to and from the hospital
B. Post-hospitalization charges are covered as well, including OPD-visits etc
4. Another HUGE difference between most of American Public Healthcare and @AyushmanNHA??
It covers Pre-Existing conditions, which includes Diabetes, Hypertension and other, chronic illnesses.
I wanna take a moment out and stress how important that is. America's recent #midterms2018 were essentially fought on how to cover #PreExistingConditions , while @AyushmanNHA has settled this issue for its beneficiaries from the start. time.com/money/5440256/…
5. Is this state-led imposition of costs on private players? Absolutely not!
HCPs (Health Care Providers) sign up voluntarily, and provide preset "Packages", the total number of which runs to more than 1300.
These Packages cover three basic aspects:
1. Evaluative, ie, diagnostic tools like MRIs
2. Therapeutic, ie, providing medicine AND surgical procedures
3. Rehabilitative medicine, ie, restoring functional ability
A very poignant examples of No. 3, ie, Rehabilitative surgeries was brought forth in this article pressreader.com/india/hindusta…
So, in short, its comprehensive, carefully crafted, takes care of both Healthcare Customers and HSPs, and executed to ensure perfection, a reflection of the Man behind it all.
No wonder, then, that @AyushmanNHA has been dubbed #ModiCare :)
Results are visible: in its First 100 Days, about 7 lakh people availed benefits under @AyushmanNHA. We must applaud @JPNadda ji for this phenomenal work as well.
What's more exciting, is this.
About Two-Thirds of people availed these benefits from Private Hospitals.
Imagine having never been treated at a private hospital before, and then getting it free :)

Meanwhile, just yesterday, this man, otherwise called "power-hungry", "fascist" by a prize idiot who represents Amethi, granted @AyushmanNHA full autonomy. moneycontrol.com/news/economy/p…
Why #ModiOnceMore???
Because, somewhere right now, perhaps a woman wins her war against Cancer due to @narendramodi's #AyushmanBharat yojana.
And, somewhere else, a young doctor like me finds an impetus to start his own hospital to cater to more patients
Uuuu, almost forgot! This is @WHO's Director General @DrTedros, offering his opinions on @AyushmanNHA.
