Handloom Weavers Health Insurance Scheme, Check details from here

Health Insurance Scheme for Weavers (HIS) or Handloom Weavers Health Insurance Scheme is a Social Security Welfare Scheme. In the 12th Five Year Plan, the Health Insurance Scheme was established on the pattern of the Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana (RSBY) of Ministry of Labour and Employment.

The scheme is aimed towards financially enabling the weaver community to access the best of healthcare facilities in the country.

The scheme is to cover not only the weaver but his wife and two children, to cover all pre-existing diseases as well as new diseases and keeping substantial provision for OPD.

The ancillary Handlooms workers like those engaged in warping, winding, dyeing, printing, finishing, sizing, Jhala making, Jacquard cutting etc. are also eligible to be covered.

Health Insurance Scheme was implemented by Ministry of Textiles to provide health care facility to handloom weavers. 

The healthcare facility was provided through a Health Insurance Company which was selected by open tender procedure. Only the annual premium was paid to the Health Insurance Company as per the actual enrolment done.

The health insurance claims submitted by the weavers were paid directly by Health Insurance Company. No irregularity in utilizing the Government of India funds were noticed in the implementation of the scheme.
