“Big Bang Reforms in Healthcare sector missing”, Dr Trehan, Chairman Medanta- The Medicity
Dr. Naresh Trehan, Chairman & MD, Medanta- The Medicity in conversation with Chahat Jain of BWBusinessworld said the budget presented was employment encouraging with respect to the rural, infrastructure and education sector which would get a big boost. The basics of the country have been addressed by the budget very well. However, there was no big bang reforms in the healthcare sector.
Insurance for farmers, rural road developments, PPP models could have been refined and encouraged. Access to healthcare by universal insurance which was announced in the last budget is yet to be operationalized.
