Madani Medical Scheme has benefited over 1.5 million from B40 group, says Health Minister


PETALING JAYA: Over 1.5 million people from the B40 category have received treatment from general practitioners (GP) under the Madani Medical Scheme until February, says Datuk Seri Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad.

The Health Minister said the pilot project, which was launched on June 15, 2023, was aimed at easing patient congestion, particularly in Green Zones at Emergency Departments at government hospitals.

"This programme, facilitated by PHCorp, an entity wholly owned by the Health Ministry, has successfully mitigated hospital congestion to a considerable extent," he said in a statement on Friday (March 1).

"With various multi-pronged strategies, over 95% of the hospitals have successfully provided medical care to at least 70% of Green Zone patients within two hours, meeting the 100-day key performance indicator," he said.

He said the selection of districts for the implementation of the scheme would not marginalise semi-rural states including those in the East Coast, the north (peninsula) and the Borneo States.
