The finance department has been making efforts to implement Medisep, a comprehensive medical insurance scheme for government employees and pensioners, from July. Finance Minister KN Balagopal held converses with clinics which are hesitant to join the plan.
After acquiring the response from the hospitals, the finance department will publish the set of hospitals which provide advantages of the Medisep scheme.
Minister Balagopal informed that the department has been taking action to implement the insurance scheme immediately.
However Medisep was reported five years back, the government approved it only in January 2022. Indeed, even after Oriental Insurance signed the agreement, the scheme is yet to be carried out. It really is learnt that the non-cooperation of some hospital wards has turned into a major hindrance to the implementation of the scheme.
