All RSBY beneficiaries in Odisha will be covered under BKKY

Bhubaneswar: Odisha Health Minister Pratap Jena on Wednesday informed that all beneficiaries of Rastriya Swasthya Bima Yojana (RSBY) in the state will avail health coverage of Rs 1 lakh under Biju Krushak Kalyan Yojana (BKKY).

“All 44,08,070 beneficiaries of RSBY were under uncertainty after the scheme was discontinued after the launch of Ayushman Bharat scheme,” said Jena while speaking at a press conference here today.

“Therefore, the state government has decided to include all the beneficiaries in BKKY to ensure that they would continue to avail the health insurance benefits,” he said.

The Health Minister advised the beneficiaries to visit the BKKY kiosks and avail BKKY (stream 2) cards in exchange of their old RSBY cards.
