AYUSHMAN BHARAT SCHEME: Bogus bills and fake admissions, Uttar Pradesh private hospitals inject fraud, get caught
Some private hospitals in Uttar Pradesh are raising bogus inflated bills under the Ayushman Bharat scheme to make easy money, according to reports. In one instance, a diarrhoea patient admitted to a general ward was shifted to intensive care, his photo was taken, and he was then moved back to the general ward. The hospital could earn more money through the scheme by raising ICU bills instead of general ward bills. So far, 369 private hospitals have been de-empanelled from the scheme due to fraudulent acts. The government is implementing new methods to catch fraudsters.
