CHENNAI: Victims of road accidents in Tamil Nadu, including those from other states and countries, will be offered a health cover for up to 1 lakh for 81 life saving procedures required within the first 48 hours of accident at 609 empanelled government and private hospitals, the government said on Thursday.
The scheme — nammai kakkum 48 (saving our lives in 48 hours) — will be offered to all road accident victims for a year. It will be dovetailed with the CM’s Health Insurance Scheme after the annual review. “These procedures are not included in the state insurance scheme as of now. We will review the spending for a year before we add this to the state insurance scheme,” said a senior official. Officials said the state will roll out the scheme soon and beneficiaries will include anyone without an insurance scheme. The state has set aside Rs 50 Crore for the first phase of implantation of ‘Inuyir Kappom Thittam’.
