Organ Transplant Added under CM Chiranjeevi Health Scheme in Rajasthan
Organ transplant has been added to the Chief Minister Chiranjeevi Health Insurance scheme (Mukhyamantri Chiranjeevi Swasthya Bima Yojana) in Rajasthan. The yearly medical coverage sum has increased from Rs 5 lakh to Rs 10 lakh, with an additional accident cover worth Rs 5 lakh, according to the budget release announced in April 2022.
According to Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot's budget presentation, the software has undergone the necessary changes and guidelines were issued to all hospitals associated with the scheme regarding new packages.
State Health Minister Parsadi Lal Meena said five packages of cochlear implant, nine of bone marrow transplant, eight of liver transplant and seven of heart transplant have been added to the packages of the scheme. This would allow people to receive expensive treatment of such diseases free of cost.
This state insurance scheme is likely to give a boost to the organ donation and transplant program in Rajasthan.
