India’s health system has been going through an incessant transformation since pre�colonial period. Combination of four basic health financing models, namely, Beveridge, Bismarck, National Health Insurance, and Out-of-Pocket (OOP), have succoured the system to transpire in its present form which has failed to reach out to vulnerable, marginalised section of the population. Although this transformation is context-driven and the system has taken its present shape in response to changing social, economic and political scenario of the country, however, its felicitousness to the present economic context is questionable.
