The Ayushman Healthcare scheme, or Modicare as it is being popularly called has been lauded as a masterstroke by many political and economics experts. The nitty-gritties of the scheme are yet to be put forth, but some details have seeped through the Finance Ministry. The scheme will have no cap on the number of members in the family. Furthermore, the state government will share 40% of the financial burden for Modicare. On the question of its feasibility, one has to understand the mechanics behind the decision. By cutting allowance for salaried employees to bring the effective standard deduction to just Rs. 5,800/- the government will gain a large chunk of extra money. Furthermore, the long term capital gain taxation will further bring in increased revenue. This money will go into providing free healthcare to almost 40% of the country's population every year.
