Governor Anil Baijal Approves Free Surgery in Private Hospitals

Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal has approved the "Quality Health for All" scheme. According to the scheme, patients unable to undergo surgery in a city government hospital for 30 days will continue to get it done for free in private hospitals.

Also, if a test cannot be done at a government hospital for any reason, the patient will be referred to selected private labs or hospitals under the scheme.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that the Lt. Governor had approved the "Quality Health for All" scheme without any income criteria.

The scheme had become another point of contention between the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)-led Delhi government and the Lt. Governor, after Baijal asked for a couple of changes in the scheme.

Health Minister Satyendar Jain had earlier said the Lt. Governor had asked the government to put an income cap on the scheme, so that "rich people" did not take its benefit.

Rebutting the claim, Baijal had said that he "never advised to exclude middle classes from the scheme" and "income criteria was suggested on the basis of recommendations of Planning and Finance Department".

"If the elected government has a different view, it could have engaged in the consultative exercise. However, it is unfortunate that again an attempt is being made to settle the issues through media," Baijal had said responding to the allegation.
