Private hospitals have stopped Arogyasri services a couple of days ago, as the state government is due Rs. 450 crs to them. The government that released Rs.250 crs towards payment of private hospital bills, expressed it's anger against them for stopping the services. It directed that all hospitals should continue Arogyasri services as usual. Meanwhile, the government specified that the amount released is only for those private hospitals that have not halted the services.
