Future Generali launches RSBY programme in Karnataka

Private sector global insurance group Future Generali India Insurance has recently launched the Rashtriya Swastha Bima Yojana (RSBY) programme in Amalapur, Bidar District of Karnataka to become the first insurer to start the enrolments in the state. It had secured the tender for one cluster consisting 6 districts in Karnataka for implementation of the RSBY programme.

RSBY is a unique scheme run by central government which provides cashless treatment benefits to below poverty line (BPL) families at all RSBY network hospitals across the country. Under this scheme, five members of a BPL family can get treatment for up to Rs. 30,000. In the Union Budget for 2012-13, the government made a total allocation of Rs about 1097 crore towards the scheme.

“Every citizen in this country should have access to health insurance coverage and the government is committed to this cause", Future Generali India Insurance Head (Health Insurance) Mr. Shreeraj Deshpande said on the occasion.

“Enrolling people in rural areas is a difficult and complex activity and requires working closely with the government. It is our honour to be associated with this project and it will be our endeavour to cover as many people under this scheme", he added.
