Goa Government has launched Deen Dayal Swasthya Seva Yojana (DDSSY), a health insurance scheme on Goa Statehood Day. The scheme will benefit people residing in the state for 5 and more years.

Goa is the first state to have a health insurance scheme which will benefit all residents of the state irrespective of their financial status. Any person residing in Goa for 5 and more years can enroll into the scheme.

Deen Dayal Swasthya Seva Yojana – Benefits

Under the Deen Dayal Swasthya Seva Yojana (DDSSY), a family of up to 3 members will be provided an insurance cover of Rs. 2.5 Lakh while the family of 4 or more members will be provided a cover of 4 Lakh.

The annual installment of the insurance premium which is Rs. 3,206 per family will be paid by the Government to the insurance company.

Coverage under Deen Dayal Swasthya Seva Yojana

The scheme will be applicable in all Government and private hospitals across the state. DDSSY will cover 447 types of investigations and related surgeries as per the Health Minister Francis D’Souza. The insurance policy will cover treatment, investigations and medications for about 276 types of diseases in the government hospitals. Hospitalization for treatment of 147 diseases in the private hospitals is also covered under the health insurance scheme.

The policy will cover hospitalization, medication as well as the cost of surgeries in government and empaneled private hospitals.

If the expenses go beyond the cover limits under the insurance scheme, which is applicable in all hospitals, government as well as private, the patient will have to take the further treatment in a government hospital.
