To facilitate and take the medical services to the next level, the State
of Goa envisaged the present scheme in order to provide its people
quality medical care and treatment of diseases, hospitalization and
surgery through Government and private hospitals.
The scheme is intended to benefit all the resident population of the
State of Goa. “Resident Population” is defined as person residing in
Goa for more than 5 years.
Welfare of the people of the State is the endeavor of any Government &
to achieve this end, the social security net requires further strengthening. As
a result, the State Government announced “Swarnajayanti Aarogya Bima” in
its State Budget to provide an health cover through an insurance policy
Scheme to the entire resident population of the State similar on the lines of
Central Government’s health insurance scheme for BPL families called as
Rashtriya Bima Swasthya Yojana. Thus, Health Insurance could be an
innovative way of overcoming financial handicaps, improving access to
quality medical care and providing financial protection against high medical
expenses to the people of the State of Goa.
