The Telangana Government Establishes Employee Health Care Trust for Cashless Health Insurance
The Telangana government has recently announced the formation of an Employee Health Care Trust (EHCT), aiming towards a cashless health insurance scheme for government employees, their families, and pensioners under the Employees Health Scheme (EHS). See the announcement here.
This scheme requires employees and pensioners to contribute a specified amount monthly to the EHCT, deducted directly from their salaries or pensions. Matching these contributions, the Telangana Government will also contribute an equal amount to the Trust each month.
The establishment of the EHCT impacts crucial policy matters affecting EHS. The Board of Trustees of EHCT will provide recommendations to the Telangana Government, and the state will soon appoint a CEO to manage EHS. Detailed guidelines on the modalities of the new Employees’ Health Scheme’s implementation will be issued separately.
