 RSBY to Provide Health Insurance for 66,000 J&K Families

The Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana (RSBY) will soon provide health insurance to 66,000 poor families in Jammu and Kashmir.

This was announced recently this week by the Minister for Health and Horticulture, Mr Sham Lal Sharma. Addressing a press conference in Jammu, he said, 'Insurance cover to the tune of Rs 30,000 has been made available to each of the 66,000 poor families. They have only to register by paying a nominal registration fee of Rs 30.' He added that the state government was planning a scheme to cover the remaining poor families in the next three months.

It was also announced that the Health Department will station modern ambulances along a stretch of over 1,500 km on the National Highway, at intervals of 30 km. This will be done to meet crisis situations in case of accidents. The ambulances would be able to communicate with the Central Control Rooms at Srinagar and Jammu by the telephone numbers: 108 and 104.
