The state government of Rajasthan announced Rs 1 lakh airfare for travel for patients and a family member travelling with them for organ transplant outside of the state. This was announced by the Chief Minister Shri. Ashok Gehlot as part of the state budget for the year 2023 - 2024.

The Chiranjeevi Health Insurance Scheme of Rajasthan encompasses a wide range of transplants, such as liver, kidney, lung, heart, bone marrow, and cochlear implants.

According to Ms. Shubhra Singh, Additional Chief Secretary, Rajasthan Medical and Health Department, this facility came into force from June 1, 2023. Additionally, beneficiaries who have already undergone organ transplantation in hospitals outside the state will also be eligible to receive compensation, in accordance with government packages. The guidelines included that only hospitals recognized by the National and State Organ and Tissue Transplant Organization will receive reimbursement for expenses related to organ transplant treatments.
