Bathinda, August 24

Allegations of malpractices have hit the Ayushman Bharat scheme in the state. The state health agency has delisted Adesh Institute of Medical Sciences and Research, a private university in Bathinda, after conducting a probe into repeated complaints of malpractices in the welfare scheme.

The institute was held guilty of wrongly making money from the insurance scheme. It was found charging money from patients who had duly generated cards. Moreover, on February 20, 2020, the anti-fraud unit had issued a show-cause notice to the institute and it was put on watch, but it continued its misconduct.

Dr Maninder Singh, deputy medical commissioner, Bathinda, who was the inquiry officer, said: "There were many complaints against Adesh institute. In one case, the institute had two treatment files of a patient. While one file showed insurance availed, the other was used to charge cash from the patient for the same treatment." Acting on the probe report, the state health agency decided to delist Adesh institute on Saturday.
