Rashtriya Swasthya BIMA Yojana (RSBY) ………. Some initial trends

Anil Swarup*

After a low profile launch of the National Health Insurance Scheme (RSBY), the scheme seems to have travelled some distance. It has been picked by the UNDP for publication as one of the top innovative social security schemes in the world.  The World Bank calls it “one of the most promising efforts in India” and “a model of good design and implementation with important lessons for other programs in India.”  Till November 11, 2010 since the roll out of the scheme in April, 2008, more than 20 million smart cards providing cashless health insurance cover to around 80 million persons have already been issued.  Barring a couple of States, the rest of them are either already implementing the scheme or are in the process of doing so. Data is now available for such 145 districts which have completed one year of operation.  In fact, 6 of these have also completed the second year. Director General, Labour Welfare**
