Rajasthan Seeks Integration of Chiranjeevi Scheme with Ayushman Bharat

The newly elected BJP government in Rajasthan is making strides to merge its state health insurance scheme, Chiranjeevi, with the central Ayushman Bharat programme. This move, pending approval from the union health ministry, aims to create a unified initiative called the Ayushman Bharat Mukhyamantri Chiranjeevi Health Insurance Scheme.

Officials reveal that the integrated scheme will maintain Chiranjeevi’s existing benefits, providing a substantial ₹25 lakh insurance cover applicable to both private and government hospitals. The Chiranjeevi scheme, initially introduced by former Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot of the Congress party, currently offers significantly higher coverage compared to Ayushman Bharat’s ₹5 lakh.

Key Points

  1. The merged scheme is set to retain the comprehensive coverage of ₹25 lakh without any reduction.
  2. The integration aligns with the state government’s directive to issue new health cards by January 26, synchronized with national efforts to cover all Ayushman Bharat beneficiaries before the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
  3. The Chiranjeevi scheme, initially designed to benefit over 1.42 crore families, continues to provide extensive coverage, with final figures awaiting confirmation from the health ministry.
