The hospitals found involved in any fraud under government’s health scheme Ayushman Bharat-Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (AB-PMJAY) would be named and shamed, union health minister Harsh Vardhan said. The minister said that the government has already de-empanelled 97 errant hospitals and penalties worth more than Rs.1.5 crore have been levied. Nearly 1,200 cases of fraud have been confirmed and action has been taken against 338 hospitals. The names of the hospitals involved in any corruption would be put up on the official website of PMJAY and made public. The idea is to name and shame them," said Harsh Vardhan.
