Ayushman Card services suspended at GB Hospital, patients and families suffer


BY TC News Desk

Agartala, 23rd March 2024:   For the past three days, GB Hospital has been unable to provide Ayushman card services, causing significant distress to patients and their families. The Ayushman card, a lifeline for those who are financially weak and cannot afford expensive medical services, has been rendered useless due to internet service issues.

Families of patients have been standing in front of the Ayushman center for hours, seeking help and answers. Meanwhile, patients are left waiting in hospital wards, their treatment stalled due to the service disruption.

The situation has been particularly challenging for those who have recently received their Ayushman cards. Over the past three days, these families have had a distressing experience. Despite their pleas to the Ayushman Center staff for assistance, they have been met with repeated responses that nothing can be done due to the internet service being down.

The suspension of services has also affected the ability of patients’ families to purchase necessary medications. For the past two to three days, they have been unable to buy medicine, rendering their Ayushman cards meaningless.

Despite the severity of the situation, the hospital authorities and health department officials, who are aware of the issue, have not felt the need to inquire or intervene. This lack of action has led to complaints from the patients’ families, who feel neglected and unheard.

This incident is not an isolated one. GB Hospital has been under scrutiny for a long time for its indifference and defective services, despite the authorities receiving substantial monthly salaries. The lack of action taken against the daily headlines of poor service at GB Hospital is a testament to this indifference. This ongoing issue is witnessed daily by hundreds of patients and their families who visit the hospital for services.
