India Budget 2018
It is very heartening to hear our FM clearly spell out the Governments focus on healthcare protection in the country. Initiatives like increasing health and education cess will allow more room for spending on healthcare.
Schemes like AYUSHMAAN BHARAT, PM will get more people in the healthcare fold. Increase in exemption limits for Senior Citizens u/s 80D will incentivize the elderly for buying health insurance.
