OUTPATIENT CARE IN RSBY: A STUDY OF PROGRAM’S PILOT EXPERIMENTS

 

The paper reviews the pilot experiments funded by the
ILO’s Impact Insurance Facility conducted from 2011
onwards in eight districts across six states to test the
provision of outpatient (OP) benefits under RSBY,
India’s Social Health Insurance Scheme for low income
populations1
. Administrative data on enrolment,
empanelment of care providers and outpatient claims
was analysed for the review. The paper also discusses
the status of primary care in India and outpatient care
provision in similar schemes in other developing
nations (Vietnam, Ghana, Indonesia, Philippines and
Thailand).

Quote of the Day

"I was stranded in New York City during the 2003 blackout, and for the next two years, I carried a small flashlight in my backpack. The flashlight did not cost much, but its potential to help in another blackout was obvious and to use it I needed only to press a button. For microinsurance to be accepted on a massive scale, it cannot cost much, its value must be obvious, and it must be simple to use." -- Brandon Matthews | Head of Microinsurance, Zurich Financial Services
