Allopathy and Homeopathy as well. It is available in 71 cities and the plan is to expand the scope to more areas.
2) Employees’ State Insurance Scheme:
A huge number of people worked in factories post-independence in India. The working conditions were such that there were injuries and deaths as well. This is where the concept of insurance proved beneficial. Employees’ State Insurance Scheme was launched in the year 1952 to offer a financial cover in case of illness, disability or death faced by insured workers/employees.
Initially, only Kanpur and Delhi were considered, but the scope of the scheme expanded with time. This policy got an upgrade in the year 2015. Now, more than 7 lakh factories are a part of this scheme.
3) Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana:
This scheme is directed towards people working in the unorganized sector. Often, they are not covered under any insurance policy. And in such a scenario, if they fall ill – which happens frequently – their savings get exhausted. Thus, they are never able to ensure they have savings in the bank. This is where health insurance can prove helpful to them.
Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana is initiated by the Indian Government’s Ministry of Labour and Employment. Individuals workers in the unorganized sector and below the poverty line are covered under this scheme. The cover also extends to their family (maximum of five members).
