Awaz Health Insurance Scheme (Enrollment, benefits and Features)

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.
