Historic decision of the AAP Govt in Delhi : Free surgeries at Private Hospitals *

Pleased to note that, Delhi Government has tied up with 41 private hospitals of Delhi for the Surgeries of Patients to be referred by the Govt Hospitals of Delhi. Normally if one visits a Govt Hospital, he has to wait for months for his turn & he is forced to visit a Private hospital and pay the huge amounts for the treatment. Now onward, if a Govt hospital gives a date, (as understood, hope no conditions attached ), of more than one month period, the patient can visit some of the designated private hospitals for the treatment. 30 types of   surgeries including the Heart By pass as well as Breast cancer have been included in it.  Delhi Govt will reimburse these private hospitals at Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) rates for the complete treatment. Moreover, it will including pre-surgery consultation, surgery, medicines, food and hospital stay, and follow-ups for a month after discharge.
List of surgeries to be done at private centres:

28. Cystoscopy (therapeutic): A scope inserted through the urethra and into the bladder to check its insides
29. Prostate (TURP): Surgery used to treat urinary problems due to an enlarged prostate
30. Kidney stone removal

This can be called a Historic decision of the Delhi Govt as on the one hand, patients will get the Free Treatment, on the other hand, private hospitals won't be able to LOOT the patients as they will be paid at the fixed charges as approved by the CGHS. Hope that no preconditions are attached to the entire process.

In my opinion, Delhi Govt must enhance its own resources in such a way that all kind of surgeries could be done in the Govt Hospitals itself so that nothing is to be paid to the Private hospitals, resulting into no burden on the common public.

They can also hire the OT's & other facilities of the Private hospitals, for surgeries by the Doctors of the Govt hospitals, to save the costs.

A minor / small cess can be levied to create a fund to cover the costs.

Your valued comments / suggestions awaited.
