Rajasthan Govt To Provide Free Medical Care To Natives

| Updated: January 22, 2023 17:05

Rajasthan government is promoting  Mukhyamantri Chiranjeevi Swasthya Bima Yojana which provides all residents access to free medical treatment anywhere in the state, including private institutions.

Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot stated that free medical treatments like knee and kidney replacements at the state’s hospitals have been a big comfort to the people. The state boasts 90 percent health insurance coverage, compared to the national average of 41 percent.

Gehlot claimed that Rajasthan has become a national leader in the health sector and foresaw the day when “all other states and the Center would also have to implement (similar plans)” and that he had “also requested to PM Modi to implement the Chiranjeevi Swasthya Bima Yojana be implemented across the entire country.”

An enrolled family can receive a Rs 10 lakh annual health insurance benefit under the programme. In addition to offering free medical care in affiliated private and government hospitals, the programme also covers costs for up to 15 days after a patient is discharged and for up to five days before that.

The majority of people seconded to pay a small yearly fee of Rs 850 to access the services, which is 50 percent of the entire premium of Rs 1,700, with the remaining 50% being funded by the state exchequer because this insurance covers every illness.

The Rajasthan government additionally covers the entire premium for small and marginal farmers, contract labourers, and food security beneficiary families for households that qualify under the Socio-Economic Census of 2011. The state government has also decided to increase insurance coverage to Rs 10 lakh per family and provide Rs 5 lakh in accident insurance, marking a further key milestone that will take effect on April 1, 2022.

The government will now present the Right to Health Bill during the budget session, which will start on January 23, in order to accomplish Gehlot’s long-held goal of establishing a healthy and happy state.
