Mukhyamantri Swasthya Beema Yojana (MSBY) is a new health insurance scheme in the state of Jharkhand which will be launched on 15th November 2017. The state government of Jharkhand will implement the Swasthya Beema Yojana from 28th December 2017 to provide health insurance coverage to the state residents.
The government is preparing to launch the Chief Minister Health Insurance Scheme on 15th November. The scheme will provide benefits to about 57 lakh families in the state who are covered under the National Food Security Act. The government would provide free and cashless treatment to the poor families under the scheme.
The government may not take any premium from the poor people of the state and bear the full premium. The treatment under the Mukhyamantri Swasthya Beema Yojana would be available at all the government hospitals and empaneled private health institutions. The government will also enlist the popular and well-known hospitals and nursing homes at its border line and neighboring states for free and cashless treatment under the scheme.
Benefits Under Mukhyamantri Swasthya Beema Yojana (MSBY)
The state government would provide health insurance coverage to the state residents, especially families belonging to the economically weaker section of the society under the MSBY scheme.
Under the scheme, Rs. 50,000 has been provisioned for secondary care and Rs. 2 lakh for special care, Rs. 30,000 for senior citizens of additionally covered class. The government would provide health cards to the beneficiaries and the whole system would be cashless.
The MSBY scheme, once implemented would be of great help to the state residents especially those who are not able to afford today’s costly treatments.
