Public sector insurance provider United India Insurance has bagged the Tamil Nadu government’s health insurance scheme.
The health insurance scheme is expected to generate a premium of around Rs 600 crore. It provides medical cover up to Rs 4 lakh (for four years).
The previous government’s Kalaignar Health Insurance scheme provided cover for Rs 1 lakh. This scheme was run by Star Health Insurance, which has missed the bus this time around.
The new scheme, which seeks to give priority to government hospitals, covers 950 types of medical treatment compared with 642 types in the previous scheme.
