Goa has announced a universal health scheme under which every family in Goa will be covered for first and secondary health aid up to Rs 60,000. Under the scheme every family in the state with five members or less, would be covered under the insurance cover scheme. "We will be inviting bids from insurance companies for providing the cover. The tender will be floated soon," Chief Minister Digambar Kamat said. The Chief Minister was, however, unable to spell out the approximate number of families in Goa's 14 lakh population which would not be covered under the scheme, nor was he able to explain the financial implication of the insurance cover scheme.
