On par with the modern scientific system of medicine, AYURVEDA is emerging into a global phenomenon
Hyderabad, November 4th, 2018: Ayurveda, the ancient Indian form of medicine is gaining strong ground across the world! With Government agencies and other stakeholders providing the much-needed impetus, Ayurveda has emerged into a strong means of healthcare, globally, and is playing a key role in improving the healthcare indices across many nations worldwide.
Establishing the ministry of AYUSH in 2014, the Government aided the creation of an advanced eco-system, policy formulation, and propagation of the traditional medicinal systems. This step motivated various State Governments to set up departments of AYUSH under the aegis of State Health Departments to promote the objectives through State-level policies, schemes, and programs. An increase in budget allocation by 13% to Rs.1626 crores during the last Union Budget is another testament of the Government’s effort to promote Ayurveda and other forms of traditional medicine.
The Ministry of AYUSH was instrumental in signing the agreement with WHO in 2016 to promote research, and bring recognition to Ayurveda, besides making efforts to sign pacts with countries like Singapore and Mauritius. AYUSH organized the first-ever international conference and exhibition in Dubai in 2017 to globalize Ayurvedic research, education, and practice, to unravel the horizons of integrated medicine.
Commenting on the importance of AYUSH and how Ayurveda is growing in prominence across the world, Dr Saji D’Souza, Chairman & Managing Director, KSAC hospital said, “To contribute their share of efforts, both Union and State Government agencies are encouraging Government employees to avail Ayurvedic treatments at Government Empanelled Ayurvedic Hospitals and such medical expenses are reimbursed like any other modern scientific systems of medical treatments through ESHS and CGHS schemes. However, each Government agency may have a different schedule of rates applicable for approved treatments, but they do have stringent standards to impanel Ayurvedic hospitals. Telugu states have 3 Government Empanelled Ayurvedic Hospitals, and have more than 26,000 AYUSH registered practitioners as of 2017.”
To promote evidence-based Ayurveda, the National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare Providers (NABH) under the aegis of the Quality Council of India, have set accreditation and structural standards for Ayurvedic Hospitals to increase the patient centricity and a centralized service capacity for the eligible hospitals, besides proving Ayurveda as a rigorous, metrics driven and reliable medicinal system. Given the stringent standards and investment barriers, there are not more than 50 Ayurvedic Hospitals accredited by NABH in the Country.
Given the increase in health care costs, the role of Insurance Service Providers is inevitable for promoting Ayurveda on a larger scale. With the efforts of Regulatory Authorities, coupled with the involvement of various stakeholders, including the representatives of IRDA, The Ayurvedic Hospitals Association and various insurance companies, the ministry of AYUSH published guidelines for insurance coverage to Ayurvedic treatment and settlement of claims on the basis of benchmark rates for various interventions.
Following this, the IRDA has issued many clarifications to general and health insurance companies and TPAs to provide coverage to Ayurveda and other systems of medicines under AYUSH. Since then, insurance companies like ICICI, Cholamandalam, Apollo Munich, HDFC, Star Health, and all Public-owned service providers have started embracing the change while extending coverage for Ayurveda and other alternative systems through both reimbursement claims and cashless claims.
We are pleased to introduce ourselves as Dr.Saji Dsouza’s KSAC Multi-Speciality Ayurvedic Hospital with a presence in Hyderabad and Bangalore.
