Hyderabad: The L V Prasad Eye Institute in Hyderabad and Bhubaneswar become the first institutes in the States of Telangana and Odisha respectively to be empanelled under the Ayushman Bharat-National Health Protection Scheme (AB-NHPS).

A formal MoU was signed between Dr Gullapalli N Rao, founder-chair, L V Prasad Eye Institute, and Dr Jitu Lal Meena, General Manager, Hospital Networking and Quality Assurance, on Friday to formalise this partnership.

Hospitals in the states of Telangana, Odisha, West Bengal and Delhi can currently apply for this empanelment. This empanelment is likely to be beneficial for the poor out-station patients coming to LV Prasad from outside Telangana.

Going forward, LVPEI will also apply for their Bronze standard of Accreditation for its secondary centres in Telangana and Odisha to help poor patients visiting these centres from the neighbouring states. The poor patients of Telangana and Odisha are already getting these benefits at the L V Prasad Eye Institute under the Arogyasri and Biju Swasthya Kalyan Yojna by the state Governments of Telangana and Odisha respectively.
