Bhamashah Swasthya Bima Yojana Scheme (BSBY): Benefits

Bhamashah Swasthya Bima Yojana (BSBY), recently renamed as Ayushman Bharat Mahatma Gandhi Health Insurance Scheme, is a groundbreaking health insurance scheme by the state government of Rajasthan to provide health coverage to economically disadvantaged families.

A wide section of society doesn't own any house and lives on daily wage income. For them, having quality medical care is still a dream. To help such weaker sections of society, the Central Government of India and various state governments launch a wide range of welfare and savings schemes.
 

The Government of Rajasthan started a Bhamashah Swasthya Bima Yojana Scheme, also known as BSBY, on 13 December 2015.
 

A cashless health insurance scheme helps eligible families avail themselves of healthcare facilities in government hospitals. Not just government hospitals, a vast network of private hospitals is also a part of the Bhamashah health insurance scheme. The scheme was launched by Vasundhara Raje, former chief minister of Rajasthan.

This blog will provide information about the Bhamashah Swasthya Bima Yojana Scheme.

The families in Rajasthan listed under the Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana (RSBY) and National Food Security Act (NFSA) can sign up for this scheme.
 

Under the recent update, the name of this scheme has been changed to Ayushman Bharat Mahatma Gandhi Health Insurance Scheme. Eligible people can avail of the cashless health insurance benefits for up to ₹30,000 for general or minor illness and ₹3 lakh for critical or major illness.
