Notification covering COVID-19 treatment in private hospitals under DDSSY kept in abeyance


Panaji: Goa government on Sunday announced that it has kept in abeyance the notification which had covered treatment of COVID-19 in private hospitals under state sponsored insurance scheme.

State Health Minister Vishwajit Rane said that the notification which was issued last week covering COVID-19 treatment in private hospital under Din Dayal Social Security Yojana (DDSSY) has been kept in abeyance.

Rane said that the decision to cancel the notification was taken after consulting Chief Minister Pramod Sawant as private hospitals are already offered package and there is mandatory capping on the pricing for COVID19 treatment in private hospitals.

“The file will be resubmitted and fresh notification will be issued cancelling the earlier one,” he said adding that the COVID-19 treatment is offered free of cost in all the government run facilities for the patients.
