In a big sigh of relief to the government employees, pensioners and their dependents, the Haryana Government has drafted the Ayush Medical Reimbursement Policy. The Policy also aims to uplift AYUSH System through its reach to all Haryana Government Beneficiaries.A decision in this regard was taken in the meeting of the Council of Ministers held here today under the Chairmanship of Chief Minister, Sh. Manohar Lal.As the vast majority of these beneficiaries are getting themselves treated under the AYUSH System of Medicine but due to No empanelled AYUSH Hospitals they were facing difficulty in getting their bills reimbursed. In view of the difficulties, AYUSH Medical Reimbursement Policy is drafted.As per the Policy, all Government AYUSH Institutions, Private AYUSH Hospitals having NABH certificates and Entry level NABH certificates will get empanelled under this policy. This will give a boost to AYUSH private Practitioners as they can get their hospitals empanelled.The Haryana Government employees, Pensioners and their dependents can avail the benefit of getting their illness treated through Indoor admission in AYUSH empanelled Hospitals under the State Government.Chronic disease Patients who were getting their outdoor charges reimbursed through Allopathy will now get an opportunity of getting themselves treated for the same disease through the AYUSH System and their charges reimbursed.Few Yoga and Naturopathy procedures will also be reimbursed during outdoor treatment of chronic disease patients since there are no medicines prescribed for outdoor patients while getting treatment in yoga and naturopathy hospitals.The Fixed Package rates have been defined in All streams of Ayush i.e Ayurveda (96 packages), Yoga (27 packages) and Naturopathy (30 packages), Unani (85 packages), and Sidha (49 packages).
