Keep strict vigil over frauds in BSKY health cards: H&FW Secretary

Bhubaneswar: Health and Family Welfare (H&FW) Secretary Shalini Pandit directed Biju Swasthya Kalyan Yojana (BSKY) Team both at the State and district levels to keep strict vigil over any probability of fraud in the extension of BSKY benefits to the card holders, today.

Pandit also asked all Collectors and District Magistrates in Odisha to take stringent action against the fraudsters under both the Clinical Establishment Act and BSKY Enforcement Norms.

“Health is a basic human need and the State government is committed to provide quality healthcare to citizenry of the State. Government has also rolled out BSKY with adequate fund provisions. Any attempt to misutilise the provisions or cheat people in any manner in the name of BSKY will be seriously dealt with,” warned the H&FW Secretary Pandit.

Further, she advised people either to directly call toll free numbers or to contact District Coordinators (DCs) and Swasthya Mitras (engaged in private sector BSKY empanelled hospitals) for any query, doubt or help regarding BSKY health card, its auto-renewal, use etc.

District Coordinators of BSKY are available at district head quarters in the Office of Chief District Medical and Public Health Officer (CDM & PHO) of the district concerned and Swasthya Mitras are available in the empanelled hospitals at BSKY counters. Generally, CDM & PHO offices are located in different district headquarters hospitals (DHHs).

Pandit made it clear to the people that no charge is collected for renewal of BSKY health cards from any card holder. State Government renews all cards automatically each year and cardholders continue to get cashless treatment as per the entitlement without any break.

Families having smart BSKY health card or the families enrolled under food security scheme are entitled to get the BSKY benefits. People are advised to directly contact toll-free number 155369 for any card related problem. The personnel at the call centre will take necessary steps to resolve their issues and provide necessary information.
