कोई शिकायत हो तो आयुष्मान मित्र से करें संपर्क

इन 5 राज्यों ने मोदी सरकार की आयुष्मान भारत योजना को लागू करने से किया इनकार

पीएम मोदी की महत्वाकांक्षी स्वास्थ्य योजना आयुष्मान भारत को 5 राज्यों ने अस्वीकार कर दिया है। जिन 5 राज्यों ने आयुष्मान भारत को अस्वीकार किया है वे हैं ओडिशा, तेलंगाना, दिल्ली, केरल और पंजाब। इन राज्यों ने योजना को अस्वीकार करने के पीछे उन्होंने अलग-अलग कारण दिए हैं। किसी का कहना है कि उसके पास आयुष्मान भारत से बेहतर स्वास्थ्य योजना है। वहीं, किसी ने केंद्र की योजना से असहमति जताते हुए उसे अस्वीकार कर दिया है। इन 5 राज्यों का कहना है कि जब तक इस योजना के संबंध में उनकी चिंताओं पर ध्यान नहीं दिया जाता, तब तक वे इसे लागू नहीं करेंगे।

आखिर आयुष्मान भारत योजना के लागू होते ही क्यों होने लगी आलोचना?

केरल ने आयुष्मान भारत योजना की आलोचना की है। इंडियन एक्सप्रेस को दिए इंटरव्यू में केरल के गृह मंत्री थॉमस इसाक ने योजना के औचित्य पर सवाल उठाते हुए इसे बड़ी धोखेबाजी है। इसाक ने कहा कि मोदी सरकार कैसे इतने बड़े स्तर की योजना को लागू करेगी। उन्होंने कहा, ‘राष्ट्रीय स्वास्थ्य बीमा योजना के तहत 30,000 रुपये मिलते हैं जिसके लिए सालाना 1,250 रुपये देने होते हैं। आयुष्मान भारत में 1,110 रुपये के सालाना प्रीमियम में 5 लाख रुपये का हेल्थ कवर मिलेगा। क्या इतने कम प्रीमियम पर यह लाभ देना संभव है?’उधर, तेलंगाना ने अपनी आरोग्यश्री योजना की वजह से केंद्र की योजना को खारिज कर दिया है। आरोग्यश्री योजना के तहत तेलंगाना के 70 प्रतिशत नागरिकों को हेल्थ कवर मिलता है, जबकि आयुष्मान भारत से केवल राज्य 80 लाख लोग लाभान्वित होते। तेलंगाना सरकार को यह भी लगता है कि आयुष्मान भारत योजना के कवर पर प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी की तस्वीर है जिससे आम चुनाव के समय भाजपा को ज्यादा लोकप्रियता मिलेगी। वहीं, दिल्ली में आयुष्मान भारत योजना से असहमति जताने की वजह ये है कि पीएम आरोग्य योजना से दिल्ली के 6 लाख परिवारों को फायदा मिलता जो यहां की जनसंख्या का मात्र 3 प्रतिशत है।

आयुष्मान भारत योजना की 5 बड़ी चुनौतियां

  1. योजना पर खर्च बड़ी चुनौती- आयुष्मान भारत योजना को राज्यों को साथ लिए बिना लागू नहीं की जा सकती। योजना पर होने वाले खर्च में राज्य भी भागीदार हैं। आयुष्मान में होने वाले खर्च का 60 फीसदी हिस्सा केंद्र उठाएगी, जबकि 40 फीसदी हिस्सेदारी राज्यों की होगी. जबकि, उत्तर पूर्वी और पहाड़ी राज्यों मसलन, जम्मू-कश्मीर, हिमाचल और उत्तराखंड जैसे राज्यों में केंद्र की हिस्सेदारी 90 फीसदी की होगी.
  2. खर्च को कंट्रोल करना बड़ा चैलेंज – लाभार्थी, बीमा कंपनी, निजी अस्पताल, डॉक्टर्स आदि 50 करोड़ लोगों को बीमा मुहैया कराने के लिए सरकार के सामने बड़ी चुनौती लागत को कम रखने की होगी।
  3. निजी अस्पताल अभी भी सहमत नहीं- आयुष्मान भारत की राह में सबसे बड़ी चुनौती यह है कि निजी अस्पताल सरकार की ओर से विभिन्न बीमारियों के इलाज के लिए तय की गई दरों पर सहमत नहीं हैं।
  4. सही लाभार्थियों की पहचान बड़ी चुनौती- एक ही नाम के कई लाभार्थी, नाम की स्पेलिंग में अंतर, ऐसी कई चीजें हैं, जो सही व्यक्ति की पहचान में दिक्कत पैदा करती हैं।
  5. हेल्थ ऐंड वेलनेस सेंटर के भरोसे है आषुष्मान भारत योजना- नेशनल हेल्थ प्रोटेक्शन स्कीम की सफलता हेल्थ ऐंड वेलनेस सेंटर पर टिकी है और अभी आजादी के 7 दशक बाद भी वेलनेस सेंटर की स्थिति किसी से छिपी नहीं है।

प्रधानमंत्री जन आरोग्य योजना से जुड़कर हर महीने कमाएं 90 हजार रूपए

आयुष्मान योजना (पीएम हेल्थ इंश्योरेंस स्कीम) में तकरीबन 10 करोड़ परिवारों का 5 लाख रुपये सालाना का स्वास्थ्य बीमा कराया जायेगा। साथ ही इस योजना से 1 लाख लोगों को रोजगार मिलेगा। इस योजना के तहत सरकार जन-धन योजना की तरह ही आयुष्मान मित्र बनाएगी। स्वास्थ्य मित्र ठीक उसी तरह होंगे जैसे जनधन योजना में बैंक मित्र लोगों का खाता खुलवाने के साथ-साथ बैंकिंग ट्रांजैक्शन कराते हैं।

क्या आर्थिक रूप से व्यावहारिक है आयुष्मान भारत स्वास्थ्य बीमा योजना

सरकार अस्पताल को सीजीएचएस से तय किए हुए रेट से 15 फीसदी कम रेट देगी। सीजीएचएस में प्राइवेट वार्ड का प्रावधान है और प्रधानमंत्री जन आरोग्य योजना में जनरल वार्ड का। हां, जो अस्पताल एनएबीएचएल से मान्यता प्राप्त होंगे, उन्हें 10 फीसदी ज्यादा राशि दी जाएगी। दरअसल एनएबीएचएल से मान्यता प्राप्त लैब रिपोर्ट की मान्यता दुनियाभर में हैं और इस रिपोर्ट की विश्वसनीयता और प्रमाणिकता देश ही नहीं विदेशों में भी है। इतना ही नहीं सरकार रिपोर्ट एरियाज में अस्पताल खोलने को बढ़ावा देने के लिए तय राशि से 10 फीसदी ज्यादा देगी।
