Covid-19 test, treatment free for 50cr 'Modicare' beneficiaries: NHA

Apr 05, 2020 00:05 IST

The National Health Authority said on Saturday that testing and treatment for Covid-19 will be free of cost for Ayushman Bharat beneficiaries at private laboratories and empanelled hospitals. The NHA, which implements the national health insurance scheme, said this will strengthen the country's response to the novel coronavirus pandemic. More than 50 crore citizens are eligible under the health assurance scheme which has also been dubbed as Modicare. The tests will be carried out as per protocols of the Indian Council for Medical Research and by private labs approved or registered by it.
