The Awaz Health Insurance Scheme was launched in 2017 by the State Government of Kerala. This scheme was introduced with the aim of providing medical coverage to migrant workers within the Indian State of Kerala. Kerala is a state that has a considerable migrant work-force that contributes towards moving the economic needle of the State. In fact, Kerala has over 31 Lakh migrants, that consist of over 25% of the total workforce of Kerala.
These migrant works, generally do not have a proper medical plan in place to safeguard their medical interests. The Awaz Health Insurance Scheme, introduced by the Kerala State Government, took this into consideration while launching this scheme. In fact, over 1 Lakh migrant workers in Ernakulam alone have enrolled under this scheme as of 2020.
The Awaz Scheme provides health coverage as well as accidental coverage to migrant workers. Let us go through the benefits and features of this scheme.
