Health Ministry dismisses news reports that Maharashtra, Rajasthan are reluctant to join Ayushman Bharat

Health Ministry today dismissed the news reports that Maharashtra and Rajasthan are reluctant to join Ayushman Bharat and said, the reports are factually incorrect. In a statement, the Ministry said, both states fully support Ayushman Bharat. 
It said, both states have strong health insurance schemes, which are currently operational and they already cover more people than proposed to be covered under Ayushman Bharat. 

However, the benefit package in terms of health conditions covered and total coverage per family of five lakhs rupees are larger under Ayushman Bharat. 

It said, the two states are currently reviewing the financial and operational implications of the convergence with Ayushman Bharat to avoid any disruption of services. The Ministry said, both states will join Ayushman Bharat as soon as these issues are resolved.
