    Government health scheme and health insurance? Sounds more like the American system , where only people who are rich will be able to use it as it does not cover the entire healthcare areas. On the other hand, Europe has free healthcare for its citizens , which also covers low cost prescriptions. India has allowed thousands of private hospitals to mushroom to earn money fleecing patients. Mysuru itself has more than 100 private hospitals of one type or another.
