Rs.200,000 health insurance for students

Budget Speech para. 102: "We are a government that is committed to ensuring a better quality of life for our children. To this end we have invested heavily in free health care. However, to further supplement public health acre, we will introduce an insurance scheme for all school going children from the age of 5-19, covering 4.5 million students, which is a revolutionary move. Each child will be given a policy of Rs. 200,000. This scheme will cover both in and outpatient services, subject to a maximum of Rs. 100,000 for hospitalization and Rs. 10,000 for outpatient services. The government will bear the premium for which I propose to allocate Rs. 2,700 million."
