New health insurance to cost govt Rs 110bn a year, say sources

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ambitious plan to provide health insurance to 100 million poor families would require Rs 110 billion in federal and state funding each year, a government official told Reuters. The National Health Protection Scheme, dubbed “Modicare” and announced in Thursday’s budget, would provide 100 million families, or about 500 million poor people, with a health cover of Rs 500,000 for free treatment of serious ailments. The government has estimated the premium for insuring each family would be about Rs 1,100, the government official stated.
