“The scheme will provide free of cost insurance to residents and the premium is borne by the government,” the statement added.

Speaking on the partnership, Tapan Singhel, Managing Director & CEO of Bajaj Allianz General Insurance said, “This would transfer the way health insurance is distributed across the country.”

“So far, under the ‘PMJAY’ people belonging to economically weaker sections of the society who were a part of the SECC database were eligible for this scheme. However, under this new PMJAY-SEHAT scheme all J&K citizens will be eligible for this scheme and can access medical treatment across the country,” Singhel added.

Bajaj Allianz General Insurance has been implementing the PMJAY in the region since 2018 where it has covered over 600,000 families.
