Bhubaneswar: The Odisha Government has announced the third phase of Biju Swasthya Kalyan Yojana (BSKY).
In the first phase of BSKY, services in public healthcare facilities were made free of cost for all.
The second phase of BSKY provided cashless healthcare service in empaneled private healthcare facilities for all ration card holders.
Under the third phase of BSKY, all rural families of Odisha (except regular government employees and income tax payees) who are presently not covered under BSKY will be eligible to receive the ‘BSKY Nabin Card’.
This will entitle them to cashless healthcare of Rs 5 lakhs per annum (up to Rs 10 lakhs for women members of the family) in empaneled private hospitals both inside and outside the state for identified critical illnesses.
