The association has said that under PMJAY, patients have been being treated in private hospitals of Gujarat, but these private hospitals have outstanding bills of Rs 300 crores. If the bills are not paid, these hospitals  Are facing financial crisis. Under such circumstances, hospitals are not in a position to treat patients under PMJAY.

Crores of payments outstanding
PMJAY Empanelment Private Hospital Association of Gujarat has alleged that Bajaj Insurance Company is creating a lot of problems in various matters including payment rejection and deduction of hospitals.  Despite several requests to PMJAY officials and the government, no solution has been found.  Due to this, payment of Rs 300 crore is outstanding from private hospitals in the last two years.  Due to no solution regarding payment, treatment of patients under PMJAY will be stopped in private hospitals from 26 to 29 February.  During this period only emergency services will be maintained.
