Apni Party censures J&K Govt for delay in issuance of “Golden Cards”

Early Times Report

Srinagar, Oct 20: Apni Party on Tuesday censures Jammu and Kashmir Government for delay in issuance of Golden Cards to the prospective beneficiaries who crave for availing healthcare benefits enshrined in the centrally sponsored Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Scheme.
Senior vice president Ghulam Hassan Mir of AP said he was told that thousands of people have already applied under this scheme but even after completing the requisite formalities, the concerned department has failed to issue Golden Cards to them.
The delay in issuance of these cards makes no sense when the J&K had claimed to be the first in the country to launch this scheme for the benefit of its people,” he remarked.
He was speaking after Mohammad Amin Khan, Halka President Peoples Conference from Zirhama Kupwara joined the party here today.
Mir observed that the patients suffering from various fatal ailments like cancer, kidney failures, liver issues and other chronic diseases are suffering immensely across J&K for want of treatment costs.
He said the many important pro people schemes are launched but the concerned departments in J&K have failed to implement these schemes on the ground. “The Golden Card scheme was supposed to provide an annual health insurance cover of Rs 5 lakh per household covering diseases like cancer and kidney, as well as COVID-19 cases. In addition to other diseases, all treatments for oncology, cardiology, and nephrology will be covered from day one in 23000 hospitals across the country,” Mir observed.
He said that this scheme is important as there are no restrictions whatsoever on the family strength or age, in this insurance policy. Not only the scheme will cover the cost of three days before a patient is hospitalised and up to 15 days after hospitalization, but the patient will also receive the cost of medicines under this policy, he said.
He urged the Lt Governor to take a review of the scheme and ask the nodal department to go for a mass awareness of this scheme for its implementation in letter and spirit across Jammu and Kashmir. “Efforts should be made to get the whole population especially the BPL and economically underprivileged sections of the society of J&K covered under this scheme,” he pleaded.
