Bhubaneswar, April 12: The Odisha government has informed that polling officials affected by heat stroke during the general elections can avail cashless treatment in private hospitals empanelled under the Biju Swasthya Kalyan Yojana (BSKY).

In a letter, the Health and Family Welfare (H&FW) department has asked the private hospitals empanelled under the BSKY to provide cashless treatment to polling officials suffering from heat stroke during the polls.

 “In addition to all BSKY package treatments, all persons on election duty shall also be provided cashless treatment in empanelled private hospitals in case of heat stroke during the ensuing simultaneous General Elections, 2024,” said H&FW Secretary Shalini Pandit in the letter.

The polling officials can avail the free treatment by producing their appointment/ engagement order for the election duty, added the letter.

The state government has asked the private hospitals to provide immediate treatment to the affected polling officials.

“The empanelled private hospitals should raise the bill in offline mode as per BSKY package rates to State Health Assurance Society for necessary payment,” she said.
