Gujarat’s commissioner of health has suspended Kiran Hospital from Pradhan Mantri Jan Aarogya Yojana (PMJAY) and Mukhyamantri Amrutum (MA) schemes on Tuesday.
Kiran Hospital, set up by Samast Patidar Aarogya Trust of leading diamantaires, was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2017. The trust has set-up a state-of-the-art multi super speciality hospital and research centre to bridge qualitative lacuna in the sphere of medicines, especially among super speciality branches of modern medical sciences.
In a letter issued by the commissioner of health, medical service and medical education, Dr MD Sukhanandi, it is stated that the office has received multiple complaints regarding money collection from AB-PMJAY and MA patients. As per hospital de-empanelment guidelines, it has been decided to suspend Kiran Hospital from October 8 and stop all claim payments too. The hospital shall not be able to register new patients but needs to process claims of patients admitted till October 7, 2019. – TOI
