Under the Prime Minister Imran Khan Naya Pakistan Qaumi Sehat Card, families will have access to health insurance cover of up to Rs 1 million a year.
The health insurance cards will be available to the citizens of Islamabad, Azad Jammu, Kashmir, and Gilgit Baltistan from the 26th of January. Soon, other regions will have access to it too.
For years, we have heard that people in foreign countries can seek medical treatment immediately if required due to the insurance available to people. However, in Pakistan, no such facility was available to the common man, especially those who live in rural areas, for years, and so often, medical attention was never given on time, costing people their lives.
The Naya Pakistan Qaumi Sehat card will truly revolutionize the country’s medical sector. Under the Sehat card, women will have access to Gynae and Obstetrics under the basic treatment. Under the advanced treatment, women will have access to Breast Cancer Screening.
