Jaipur: Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said on Tuesday that the state government is working with full commitment and sensitivity towards providing better medical facilities to the people of the state and as a result of this, today Rajasthan is emerging as a model state in medical and health services. He said that the State Government has started ambitious schemes like Mukhyamantri Free Nirogi Rajasthan Yojna and Mukhyamantri Chiranjeevi Swasthya Bima Yojana. In this sequence, Gehlot launched Mukhyamantri Chiranjeevi Jeevan Raksha Yojna to protect the lives of road accident victims.

“The State Government is ensuring that all these schemes are effectively implemented on the ground. Appropriate steps should be taken to spread awareness about the schemes so that no one is deprived of their benefits due to lack of information.

Also, for effective implementation, regular monitoring of schemes and public feedback should be taken from time to time,” Gehlot said while addressing the review meeting of the Medical Department at the Chief Minister’s residence on Tuesday. “In the state, 7 percent of the budget is being spent on medical and health services. In Rajasthan, 88% of the households are covered under health insurance whereas the national average is only 41%. Today, along with expensive tests like MRI, CT scan, liver transplant, bone marrow transplant are being provided free of cost in the state. 21.14 lakh patients have been benefitted by the free treatment of Rs.2111.41 crore. Private hospitals are being paid within 21 days,” he said.
