Biju Swasthya Kalyan Yojana in Odisha Budget 2023-24

Finance minister presented Odisha Budget 2023-24 on 24 February 2023. FM said when illness strikes a family, health expenditures can be catastrophic, wiping out life-time savings and pushing families below the poverty line. Hon’ble Chief Minister, with an aim to protect all vulnerable families in the time of illness, launched the path-breaking Biju Swasthya Kalyan Yojana. 

This makes Odisha the first and only State in the country and perhaps the world, where all healthcare services, from OPD consultation to ICU and surgery, are provided free of charge to all persons, in all Government hospitals. Each year, poor families save Rs. 600 crore expenditure on drugs, which is borne under Niramaya. Similarly, the people of Odisha save over Rs. 150 crore each year on diagnostic expenses alone, as the same is borne by the Nidaan scheme. In addition to this, 96.5 lakh families covering over 3.3 crore people of Odisha are provided with cashless healthcare in over 600 premier private hospitals across 17 States.

Till date, over 10 lakh families have saved over Rs.2,100 crore towards healthcare expenses in premier private hospitals. The House will be happy to know that about 50,000 families have availed cashless care of above Rs. 1 lakh per annum and nearly 1000 women have availed healthcare of over Rs. 5 lakh per annum. It is an indicator of the success of the scheme that BSKY has sustained a record 97% Positive patient feedback over the years.

For supply of free medicine and diagnostic services at Government Hospitals and reimbursement of claims of private hospitals for providing cashless treatment to the patients (BSKY card holders), provision of Rs. 513 crore has been made under NIRAMAYA, Rs. 140 crore under NIDAN and Rs. 2,380 crore under State Health Assurance Society (SHAS) in the Budget Estimate for 2023-24.
