Health insurance scheme to be rolled out by this year's end.

    The NDA government's flagship project, health insurance scheme for all, is likely to be rolled out in different phases by the end of this year. Health minister Harsh Vardhan said on Monday that the details on health facilities to be covered in the scheme have been discussed at the ministry level and also the Prime Minister's Office (PMO).
He said that the new insurance scheme would be free for those below the poverty line and the premium for others would also be low. "At present, health insurance touches about 25 percent of population.
He said that an autonomous UHAM agency will be formed to ensure above-board operations and genuine protection of the insured.
Asserting that his ministry was focussed on improving the health infrastructure in the country, the minister said that he was in favour of the decisions taken by the previous UPA government to introduce rural cadre of doctors who would serve at primary health centres.
Three new bills to regulate health research and facilitate clinical practices in areas like surrogacy and new systems of medicine have been finalised, Vardhan said.
He said radical transformation is required in the functioning of regulatory bodies like the medical and the dental councils of India.
