Swavlambhan health insurance for Disabled from age 0-65

This petition had 231 supporters


Swavlambhan the health insurance scheme launched by New India Assurance co ltd gives a cover for Rs 2 lacs to disabled persons in the age group of 0-65.

They have not included Autism, cerebral Palsy, multiple disabilities & few other disabilities under their scheme because they are still abiding by PWD act 1995 ( persons with disabilities act ) under which all the above Disabilities were not covered. 

In today's day 2 lacs cover is nothing as compared to the medical costs, so the cover should be increased to 5 lacs. May the company increase the premium from Rs 357 per year to Rs 700 per year.

My petition is

1- the cover should be given according to PWD act 2016 ( under which Autism, cerebral palsy etc have also been added) & not according to PWD act 1995.

2- the cover should be increased to 5 lacs from 2 lacs.

Thanks
