Cashless BSKY Treatment Facility Continues, Clarifies Odisha Chief Secy, Health Dept

Bhubaneswar: Amid reports that some private hospitals were denying cashless treatment to beneficiaries of Biju Swasthya Kalyan Yojana (BSKY), the Odisha Chief Secretary and the H& FW Dept of the government on Thursday made it clear that the health facility scheme is very much active with budgetary support.

It was earlier alleged that some private hospitals in Odisha refused to provide cashless treatment facilities to beneficiaries of the BSKY as a change in government was on the anvil. Fearing that the scheme may be discontinued and their dues may not be cleared due to the change in government, some hospitals reportedly denied accepting BSKY cards.

But the H& FW Dept as well as the Chief Secretary clarified that all claims raised by the hospital will be paid by SHAS as before. “This is to clarify that all BSKY beneficiaries will continue to avail cashless healthcare services. Hospitals have been sensitized to continue treatment to beneficiaries without any disruption. All claims raised by hospitals will be paid by SHAS as before,” the H& FW Dept said in a tweet.

A day back Odisha BJP president, Manmohan Samal has said that the BSKY will be abolished in Odisha with the introduction of the Ayushman Yojana of the NDA government at the Centre. BJP President Manmohan Samal urged not to create any confusion over BSKY.
