The Rajasthan government's ambitious Chiranjeevi health insurance scheme, which offers annual cashless insurance cover of Rs 5 lakh to every family started on Saturday, 01.05.2021.

According to a government official, the last date of registration for the scheme is also extended from April 30 to May 31 under the direction of Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot.

Those who have registered already will get the insurance coverage from May 1, and those who will be registering now will get the benefit from the date of registration.

The CM also tweeted about it, saying 22.85 lakh families have registered so far. The last date for registration has been extended because of the inconvenience caused to the people due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Registration for the "Mukhya Mantri Chiranjeevi Swasthya Bima Yojana" (Chief Minister Chiranjeevi Health Insurance Scheme) covers treatment expenses for COVID-19, was started from April 1.

Gehlot had announced the scheme in the budget for FY 2021-22, under which free treatment of up to Rs 5 lakh per year will be given in government and impaneled private hospitals in the state.

The registration is free for those covered under the National Food Security Act (NFSA), Socio-Economic Caste Census (SECC), Small and marginal farmers, contractual workers, and those who have received COVID-19 ex-gratia. In contrast, those who do not fall in these categories will have to pay Rs 850 as 50 percent of the annual premium.
