All residents of Delhi are soon likely to be covered by a health insurance scheme by the end of the year.

Both private and government hospitals will be empanelled in the scheme, which has received in-principle approval from the Cabinet, according to the Health Minister, Satyendar Jain.

It will cover all those with valid proof that they are residents of the capital city. It will have three slabs of premiums, the highest of which will not be over Rs. 3000 annually. Jain said Government would pay the premium for those below the poverty line, thus making treatment at private hospitals accessible to the underprivileged.

The scheme will cover 1,800 medical procedures, and will include accident insurance.
