Kolkata, Feb 24 (PTI) The West Bengal Health
department has asked all private hospitals and nursing homes
that have more than 10 beds to get empanelled for the Swasthya
Sathi health scheme, an official said.
Non empanelment or refusal to treat patients with
Swasthya Sathi cards may lead to cancellation or non-renewal
of licence of the medical establishment, the official said.
“… non-empanelment under Swasthya Sathi scheme or
refusing/denying treatment to the Swasthya Sathi patients
shall be treated as a violation of sections of the West Bengal
Clinical Establishment Registration Regulation and
Transparency Act, 2017 which may lead to cancellation or non-
renewal of licence of that hospital and nursing home,” a
Health department notification issued on Tuesday said.
The Swasthya Sathi scheme, which was initially
launched in 2016, is a basic health cover for secondary and
tertiary care up to Rs 5 lakh per annum per family. PTI SCH
