Three years ago, I wrote an essay titled “Universal Health Insurance –Will this meet the expectations of affordable care to all citizens?”. For this essay, I was the winner of the essay competition from Insurance Institute of India. Here is the abstract of my essay.
Mrunal Pandit has posted the extract from a LinkedIn post on the topic of Universal Health Coverage and the role of Insurance Companies in India. She highlights the Government fo India schemes such as Rashtriya Swastha Bima Yojana and Pradham Mantri Suraksha Bima.
Ayushman Bharat is India’s Ambitious Affordable, Universal Healthcare Program that was announced in the 2018 Budget speech by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley . I thought of sharing my views on this scheme, based on my experience with a similar program (Rashtriya Swasth Bima Yojana or RSBY).
