About Dr YSR Aarogyasri

In 2007, the then chief minister of Andhra Pradesh, Dr. YS Rajashekhar Reddy launched a health insurance program that sought to provide low income families with access to quality healthcare at no cost. This program is now referred to as the YSR Aarogyasri Health Scheme and is handled by the Aarogyasri Health Care Trust.

Benefits of Dr YSR Aarogyasri Health Scheme

The Dr. YSR Aarogyasri scheme is targeted at those desiring excellent health care in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana at discounted costs. Some of the scheme’s features include:

  • Hospital care: In-patient care for all the listed diseases are covered by the scheme when hospitalization is required.

  • Out-Patient Care: Health camps and network hospitals provide these treatments as part of their cashless services under the scheme.

  • Cashless Services: An annual coverage of Rs. 5 Lakhs per family is available to registered family members and beneficiaries when they require it.

  • Pre-Existing Disease Coverage: An uncommon feature of this plan is that it covers diseases that the beneficiary is already suffering from prior to registering for the scheme.

  • Follow-Up: The Dr. YSR Aarogyasri scheme also covers procedures post hospitalization which can cost a fair amount on their own.

  • Family-Floater Health Insurance: The sum insured can be made use of by the entire family with no need for separate plans to be taken out for individual family members.

YSR Aarogyasri Scheme Vs. Ayushman Bharat Scheme 

As per Telangana Today, the Dr. YSR Aarogyasri scheme has been shown to be more impactful in comparison to the Ayushman Bharat Yojana introduced all over the country, when weighed against each other based on the following points:

  1. Sum Insured: The Aayushman Bharat Yojana offers a sum insured of Rs. 5 Lakhs which falls short of the Rs. 2 to Rs. 13 Lakhs offered by the YSR Aarogyasri scheme.

  1. Eligibility: The main point of difference between the two, lies in the eligibility criteria involved. While the Ayushman Bharat Scheme utilises Socio-Economic Caste Census Data(SECC), the YSR Aarogyasri scheme does not and would in fact, exclude some families if it followed the same criteria.

  1. Implementation: The YSR Aarogyasri scheme has been implemented for over a decade now and hence, state governments are far more experienced in its inner workings. Conversely, the Ayushman Bharat Scheme is relatively young and many families are still yet to enroll and avail its benefits.
