Govt Considers Bringing Health Insurance Cover For All

The BJP-led NDA government is mulling to bring affordable health insurance scheme with a view to provide basic minimum health insurance cover to all. In order to achieve the basic health care need, the Union Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan has been working on series of reforms. The government has also announced to open branches of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in different states and to improve health infrastructure.
The government’s aim is to cover a range of diseases like diabetes, cardiac and cancer with the nominal premium. The rate of the premium for middle class people could be determined on one’s income. But for the poor it would be very nominal.
