The Employees’ State Insurance Corp. (ESIC), which runs a network of hospitals across the country for insured person (IP), has asked the Union health ministry and state governments to take over some of them to avoid complications arising from dual control, a person aware of the matter said. Some ESIC hospitals in states are run by the respective state governments, with the corporation supplying medicines. A parliamentary standing committee on labour has invited representatives of the ESIC and health ministry on Tuesday to assess the impact of covid-19 on these healthcare facilities, and discuss their functioning and management.
