    Someone has to either die or about to die,then only this card will work in India.Seriously i haven’t appreciated the initiative.I have still a chronic cough(almost went on for 4 years),and i am doubting if i have serious lungs problems or some complications internally.I wanted to get myself checked up here in india,yet i cannot use it.Everybody cannot use it infact..In Thimphu referal hospital,Doctors will neva check the patient who doesn’t look serious.I have been to it for several times,couldn’t get a check.Everywhere sucks!

    My college too has a provision, uptil rs.50,000.Seriously it is not for me.I am about to get done with my course,still i haven’t claim a penny either from GOI-fund ,nor RICBL insurance.What infact this medical card has done a big damage to us is neither we can claim the medical cliams from GOI-fund,nor we cannot use this sucking card.Only thing you will land up is,i pay from my pocket.Just for a simple check up,Rs.3500,if you do a ultrasound,you will have to pay Rs.2000.Just see who is going to bear the losses we suffer just because of this card!

    Health Insurance for civil servants pursuing higher studies? ridiculous news to end my day. Studying? The scheme is a laughing stock. RICBL should have done some research on the Bhutanese antics abroad. They rent an apartment and drink heavily gallons of whisky brought from homeland is what people describe of Bhutanese esp by Indian. I am ashamed. Bhutanese don’t study at all. If there is an event, they make 100 % percent attendance but for regular class, always finds an excuse. I am a Bhutanese citizen doing my higher studies and feels grieved to read this news.
