Some very big and important questions that need answering with the rolling out of, “World’s Largest government funded Healthcare Programme”, the feel-good healthcare policy by the Modi Government in the 2018 budget -
How will the world’s largest health programme get financed? Why is the government promoting insurance schemes that essentially involve partnerships with private providers? Do insurance schemes benefit public health? What is this scheme looking to address- The huge healthcare crisis that plagues India or profit making avenues for insurance companies and big pharmaceuticals?
