In order to provide better health facilities to the community of traditional weavers the Himachal cabinet, presided by the Chief Minister Mr. Prem Kumar Dhumal, decided to improve the health insurance cover for the weavers under Handloom Weaver Comprehensive Welfare Scheme.

Under this health insurance cover, as an outdoor patient, the handloom weavers would be able to spend up to Rs. 7,500 per year for their health issues in any of the hospitals or clinics or in any of the enlisted hospitals of the State Government and as an indoor patient the highest spending limit would be Rs 15,000 per annum, said a cabinet spokesman.

To avail the benefit of this health insurance cover, the beneficiaries are required to contribute Rs 95.20 as annual premium while the rest of it would be borne by the state government, he added.

Around 16,000 weaver families in the state of Himachal would be benefited, by the improved health insurance cover, in the current year.
