The Government of Andhra Pradesh launched the Rajiv Aarogyasri Healthcare Insurance Scheme in 2007 for the 2.03 crore below the poverty line (BPL) families in Andhra Pradesh. The scheme aims to achieve ‘Health for all’ by assisting poor families in their struggle out of indebtedness through the provision of free insurance through a unique PPP model.
Under the scheme, BPL families can avail health benefits through affordable insurance. The premium for this policy is financed by the government. A sum of 150,000 rupees is reserved for each BPL family with a buffer amount of 50,000 for unexpected expenditure.
Since the roll out of the scheme, the number of people and diseases covered has greatly increased. An online management system has allowed for the identification of disease trends. The scheme has also contributed to medical research and documentation and has been successful in spreading quality healthcare facilities throughout the state.
