Mizorm private hospitals to implement state healthcare scheme

Aizawl, January 24: An umbrella body of private and church-run hospitals of Mizoram on Friday informed the state government on Friday that its members will implement its health care scheme, officials said.
The government in December had suspended empanelment of 18 private hospitals for allegedly refusing to implement the Mizoram State Health Care Scheme (MSHCS).
Health Minister Dr R Lalthangliana recently requested Non-Governmental Hospital Association of Mizoram (NGHAM) to implement the programme.
“The NGHAM on Friday held a meeting, considered the health minister’s request and agreed to implement the state healthcare scheme for the benefit of people,” the association leader Dr Vanlalsiama said.
The association also appealed to the state government to revoke the order suspending empanelment of 18 private hospitals, he said.
Lalthangliana thanked the organisation for agreeing to implement the state healthcare scheme and asked officials to take action for lifting the suspension.
The government would revise the scheme if need arises, he said. (PTI)
