Health scheme

The universal health coverage scheme Arogya Karnataka, initiated by the State government, is being offered by Kasturba Hospital here. It covers primary healthcare, normal secondary care, complex secondary care, tertiary and emergency health care.

The scheme was being implemented from June 1, 2018.

“As we are still waiting for the new guidelines for the scheme, we are following the old scheme guidelines for providing treatment. Emergency services are available only for BPL card holders,” the Kasturba Hospital authorities said.

Patients covered by ESI or any other private insurance are not eligible for the benefits.
