According to a press release, State government staff and above the poverty line (APL) families can get cashless treatment in private hospitals from January 20, 2015.
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah will launch the schemes and a mobile app that will show the rates fixed by various hospitals for semi-private and private wards, on this day. While government employees will get cashless treatment in 124 empanelled hospitals under the Jyothi Sanjeevini scheme without any cap, APL families will get subsidised treatment under Rajiv Arogya Bhagya (RAB) up to Rs. 1.5 lakh in 110 empanelled hospitals.
Under the RAB, there are differential rates for general, semi-private and private wards. While beneficiaries opting for treatment in general wards will get 70 percent reimbursement of the cost, those who choose semi-private and private wards will get reimbursements up to 50 percent, said Health Minister U.T. Khader.
