The Chief Minister of Odisha, Naveen Patnaik, launched the Biju Swasthya Kalyan Yojana – a health assurance scheme for the people of Odisha on Independence Day. Patnaik made it known on August 15 that the new health assurance scheme will ensure no underprivileged person in Odisha is denied medical treatments due to their economic condition.
The state government has already started to post letters to the beneficiaries of the scheme. The collectors have been asked to create and manage a 6-member committee in each district to review the proper distribution of the letters.
The Odisha state government emphasises on the fact that the Biju Swasthya Kalyan Yojana is an assurance scheme and not a regular health insurance scheme. It not only provides coverage for treatments but also focuses on improving the overall health situation of the state.
