AP's annual Aarogyasri spending tripled since TDP regime: Jagan
YS Jagan said that the cost of the patient's diet should be raised to Rs 100 per day.
AMARAVATI: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy on Friday stated that the government's annual expenditure on Aarogyasri had tripled since the previous administration even as 432 new 104 vehicles are set to enter service by December.
The Chief Minister stated at a review meeting of the Medical and Health Department held here that around Rs 2,500 crores were spent on YSR Aarogyasri with increased number of treatments while Rs 300 crores were spent on Aarogya Asara. Another Rs 400 crore were spent on 108 and Rs 104.
The Chief Minister stated that hospitals should have enough employees and that there should be a monthly audit on this matter, with a report that was guaranteed to reach the officials. All openings must be filled up right away and this procedure must be ongoing. There should also be a thought process about creating a medical recruitment board, he added.
YS Jagan said that the cost of the patient's diet should be raised to Rs 100 per day, similar to the Aarogyasri patients and a high-quality menu should be offered. By November, all work on urban health clinics and the building of new medical institutions must be finished.
According to the officials, because some requirements have not yet been completed, the increase in procedures from 2,446 to 3,254 will start on October 15 rather than October 5. By December, there would be 1,108 ambulances available, an increase of 432,104. The 748 108 automobiles should have little trouble being maintained. The officials said that Village Clinics provide access to 67 different types of medications as well as 12 different types of diagnostic tools. They were instructed by the chief minister to continue stocking Covid kits.
