Health push in budget may outdo Obamacare

The Narendra Modi government’s first budget is likely to have a lot of healthy ideas.

The budget to be presented by finance minister Arun Jaitley next Thursday is expected to place health management ahe-ad of health insurance and cost modification, and pr-ovide fresh impetus to healthcare reforms with a focus on health assurance, preventive healthcare, innovative solutions and research & development.

The new policy will go a step beyond Obamacare — US president Barack Obama’s universal health insurance programme provided under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) — and spell out specific action plans targeting those below poverty line, who do not have ready access to affordable healthcare.
