NITI Aayog today launched the model guidelines for Public – Private partnership in Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs). As per the guidelines, the private partner will invest in upgrading, building and deploying human resources. They will be responsible for operational management and service delivery.
The state governments will provide the required physical space. It is suggested that the tariff structure for the services offered under the NCD care facility may be linked to the existing state and Central Government Health Insurance scheme. In a case, a government health insurance scheme is introduced in a state after adoption of CGHS tariff, tariff rates should be revised to the newly introduced scheme in the state.
All service in NCD care facility will be offered by a single entity, be it a trust, company and consortium under the PPP arrangement. All categories including trusts, companies will be allowed to bid for the project and no restrictions may be imposed on any of the these categories.
NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant said, the guidelines will help streamline private participation and encourage world class infra & patient care in the health sector.
