THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Karunya-health scheme will be directly implemented by the government henceforth. The scheme will be implemented on Assurance model after avoiding Insurance Agencies.

The government aims to form State health agency and pay treatment cost directly to the hospital in which beneficiaries have received treatment.

The State government had started Karunya health scheme after combining all social health insurance schemes only last year.
Each family is supposed to get Rs Five lakh Insurance coverage. 42 lakh people are currently members of the scheme.

Reliance General Insurance was the first service provider. The government decided to implement the scheme directly as there were several complaints including the insufficiency of insurance amount.

The government has issued an order after accepting the report in this regard, prepared by KASP (Karunya Arogya Suraksha Paddhati) special officer.

An autonomous body will be formed for coordination of activities. The health department will bring out a detailed blue print in this regard soon.
