Tamil Nadu launches Rs750 crore health insurance scheme

Under the Chief Minister's Comprehensive Health Insurance Scheme, a family would get a health insurance cover up to Rs1 lakh per annum for four years

A new health insurance scheme for providing free medical and surgical treatment to 1.34 crore families in Tamil Nadu was launched by Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa at an annual outlay of Rs750 crore. Under the Chief Minister's Comprehensive Health Insurance Scheme, replacing the previous DMK regime's insurance cover, a family would get a health insurance cover up to Rs1 lakh per annum for four years, an official release said.

In the case of certain diseases, the insurance cover could go up to Rs1.50 lakh. The scheme, to be implemented by public sector United India Insurance Company, would be applicable to every member of a family whose annual family income is less than Rs72,000.

Ms Jayalalithaa handed over ID cards for the scheme to seven beneficiaries and approval letters for treatment to seven others on the occasion. After coming to power in May, Ms Jayalalithaa had scrapped the “Chief Minister Kalaingar’s Insurance Scheme” named after DMK President M Karunanidhi, as part of reversing DMK regime’s pet projects.
