Echoing him, Dr Piyush Gupta, managing director of GNH-India, said the scheme would make healthcare more accessible for the poor.

"It takes care of hospitalisation, the secondary and tertiary care".

"Universal health insurance through private hospitals has not worked for the poor anywhere", said Mayaram". "We are going fast on it", he added. "We look forward to partnering with the government in implementing these transformative programmes in India".

States will also have to decide whether to run the NHPS in Trust mode, where all modalities are taken care of by the Trust, or the insurance company mode, where the company that wins a bid is in charge, as per NITI Aayog.

The second initiative is the flagship National Health Protection Scheme. Rs 1200 crore is being provided for setting up these centers. While some from the medical fraternity agree that the scheme would be a beneficial one, others say that if not implemented well, private hospitals might try to misuse it.

Then a year ago, the National Healthcare Protection Scheme (NHPS) was launched as a repackaged version of all these. Today, (the Finance Minister) has admitted that no money has been provided and he will "raise money in the future". Also, the move to set up new Government Medical Colleges and Hospitals will bridge the lack of trained clinical specialist especially in the rural areas. Allocating Rs 1,200 crore for the National Health Policy, Jaitley said that it would go towards 1.5 lakh health and wellness centres to bring health care closer to the homes of people.
