What is the Mukhyamantri Chiranjeevi Yojana Scheme?

The Mukhyamantri Chiranjeevi Swasthya Bima Yojana scheme is a universal health insurance scheme introduced by the Rajasthan state government to provide free emergency healthcare to its citizens. Under this scheme, citizens get a sum insured of ₹25 lakhs (from FY 2023-24 onwards) with an additional accident cover of ₹5 lakhs.

The Mukhyamantri Chiranjeevi Swasthya Yojana scheme was launched specifically for families and citizens living below to poverty line. Every family in Rajasthan can avail free cashless treatment of up to ₹5 lakhs in all network hospitals.

Moreover, the annual premium amount is waived for anyone or any family living and earning below the poverty line. The state government pays the insurance premiums in their stead. For those that do not fall under the poverty line, the annual premium amount is only ₹850.

Key Features of the Chiranjeevi Swasthya Bima Yojana Scheme:

  • Anyone that wishes to apply for this scheme must be a permanent resident of Rajasthan state.

  • All beneficiaries under the Mukhyamantri Chiranjeevi Bima Yojana health scheme, including factory workers, contract workers, and small and marginal farmers, can register on E-Mitra, and have their insurance premiums paid by the state government.

  • All families and individuals apart from the beneficiaries must pay an annual premium of ₹850.

  • Women heads of families covered under the scheme are offered smartphones with free internet connectivity for up to 3 years. In addition, this scheme also covers childbirth costs, something most medical insurance plans require you to purchase a separate cover for.

  • Insured families are offered coverage up to ₹10 lakhs under this medical insurance plan, with a ₹5 lakh accident cover. As of FY 2023-24, this coverage will be enhanced to ₹25 lakhs.

  • Beneficiaries under the Ayushman Bharat scheme can also register under the Chiranjeevi Swasthya Bima Yojana scheme.

Caveats and Exclusions Under Chiranjeevi Swasthya Bima Yojana:

  • Rajasthan government employees and their families can not apply for this scheme as they are insured under the Rajasthan Government Health Scheme instead. This scheme offers almost all the same benefits and features as the Chiranjeevi Swasthya Yojana scheme.

  • Families already receiving health insurance benefits from the National Food Security Act and the Socio-Economic Census are not required to register for this scheme.

Chiranjeevi Swasthya Yojana Policy Clauses Regarding Private Hospitals:

  • Only a few private hospitals are allied with this health scheme. Therefore, applicants must carefully go over the list of network hospitals under the scheme if they wish to avail the services of a private hospital.

  • The government will bear the expense if the patient cannot pay for the emergency treatment costs at the private hospital.

  • There will only be a single line of grievance redressal. Any person with a complaint can only express their issues in writing to the head of the institution to which their complaint pertains.

The Right to Health Act's Impact on Chiranjeevi Bima Yojana

The Rajasthan Right to Healthcare Act was passed on 21st March 2023. It ensures that the state government makes a general commitment to provide citizens with curative and preventative health services according to the guidelines stated under the Act.

One of the reasons this Act was passed was to ensure that citizens get the full health benefits of the schemes offered to them. This is because it was found that people still paid for most of their medical expenses out of pocket, making them lose out on their savings. Since health schemes like the Mukhyamantri Chiranjeevi Bima Yojana are not entitlements, their breach or non-availability of services is not considered a violation.

The Health Act's introduction ensured that the government provided health services for people without causing additional hardships. This included clauses like the government bearing the cost of the emergency treatment at private hospitals if the patient can not bear the costs.

Benefits of the Mukhyamantri Chiranjeevi Yojana Scheme

- High Sum Insured: Insured families and individuals can receive up to ₹25 lakhs in health insurance coverage, with an additional ₹5 lakh accident cover for a minimal yearly premium of only ₹850.

- Pre and Post-Hospitalisation Coverage: This health insurance scheme offers coverage for medical costs 5 days before hospitalisation and 15 days after discharge.

- Get Treated at Any Hospital: Beneficiaries of this scheme can avail emergency treatment in both government and private hospitals and have their expenses covered by the government. Patients also receive free transportation to and from hospitals.

- Cashless Facilities: Families and individuals insured under this plan can avail cashless treatment for up to ₹5 lakhs in all network hospitals.

- Exhaustive Coverage of Medical Illness, Treatments and Procedures: This scheme covers more than 1,576 medical procedures and benefits. Newer packages have also been added to this scheme to include coverage for cochlear implants and organ transplants.

- Treatment at Operational Camps: Moving forward, the government also plans to set up operational camps to examine and treat various diseases. Some of these treatments include:

  • Effective and quick tuberculosis testing and treatment.

  • Eye examinations for poor vision or cataracts.

  • Silicosis and leprosy screenings.

  • The camps will also handle Covid-19 ticketing and treatment costs.

Additionally, registration facilities will be available at these camps for those who have yet to register for this health insurance scheme.

What is a Jan Aadhar?

The Jan Aadhar card is identified by a ten-digit number and, in this case, is necessary when applying or registering under the Mukhyamantri Chiranjeevi Swasthya Yojana scheme. It is an identification card meant to directly transfer the benefits of government schemes to the beneficiary's account.

It is available only for citizens of Rajasthan and is linked to the ration card. People living outside of Rajasthan do not need this to get a health insurance plan. Instead, they will only need their KYC documents during the application process.
