KATHMANDU: The Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital (TUTH) has postponed the health insurance scheme.
Issuing a press release on Friday, Executive Director Dr Dinesh Kafle has made it clear that the TUTH postponed the insurance scheme after the government’s Health Insurance Board stopped providing money to the hospital.
The decision to postpone the insurance scheme would come into effective from Asar 15 (June 29).
The TUTH was being reimbursed by the Insurance Board for providing medical service to the insured patients.
The hospital had been implementing the insurance program since Mangsir 2077.
