Balbir Singh Sidhu, Former minister and present MLA of Punjab, speaking about Sarbat Sehat Bima Yojana, said it had become an important source of relief to people as it provided free treatment up to Rs 5 lakh per family to the beneficiaries. 

What is Sarbat Sehat Bima Yojana:

This scheme was announced by the Chief Minister of Punjab with the motive to provide cashless treatment to all of the residents of the state. The cashless treatment will be given to the poor people of the state so that they can freely go to the hospital for their checkups and also undergo surgeries without any worry related to finance. 

Sidhu referred to the scheme of allotting plots of 5 marlas each to the needy people while addressing people during a Suwidha camp at the district administrative complex. He also met chief minister Charanjit Singh Channi and asked for relaxation of terms & conditions so that a maximum number of people could get the benefits of the scheme. 

Talking about Ayushman Bharat- Sarbat Sehat Bima Yojana, he said this scheme had become a major source of relief to the people as it provided free treatment of up to Rs 5 lakh/family to the beneficiaries in public hospitals as well as private hospitals.

While stressing the need to sensitize people about various welfare schemes, the government had taken a big initiative to organize Suwidha camps so that the benefits of schemes could be available in one place. He also informed that around 4,000 beneficiaries had availed benefits of various schemes till October 28 during these Suvidha camps held at subdivision level across the district. 

He also distributed job cards of the MGNREGA scheme, pension approval letters and consent letters of various schemes to beneficiaries, during the occasion. Various departments also set up stalls to provide benefits of welfare services to people on the spot.
