No registration charge on e-mitra in Chiranjeevi Scheme

Jaipur: Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has given instructions to ensure 100% registration in the ambitious ‘Mukhyamantri Chinarjeevi Swasthya Bima Yojana’ which provides cashless treatment up to Rs5 lakh to each family of the state.
“The scheme, which comes into effect from May 1, will not require any fee while applying through e-Mitra for registration, depositing premium and printing.
The state government will bear this fee. While registering on e-Mitra, the beneficiary will have to pay only Rs850 as premium amount,” Gehlot said while holding discussions with officials regarding effective implementation of the ambitious scheme at CMR on Wednesday.
Gehlot said that usually people have to pay a premium of up to Rs30,000 to get cashless health insurance up to Rs5 lakh, but for peoples’ health, state govt will bear Rs3,500 crore for merely Rs 850 per unit and provide health insurance to about 1.10 crore families as well as 13 lakh small and marginal farmers and families of more than 4 lakh contract workers under the ambit of National Food Security and Socio-Economic Census-2011.
Gehlot directed that to ensure health security of every person of the state, the work of registration should be done with mission spirit.
For this, people should be attached to the scheme by holding special camps. Beneficiaries holding Janadhar card can also register through the link available on website of Medical and Health Department.
The plan includes 1576 packages of treatment for various diseases including Covid.
Beneficiaries will be able to get treatment in government and private hospitals affiliated to the scheme.
CM will communicate with public representatives and personnel up to ward and panchayat level through video conference on Saturday, 10 April at 12.30 pm.
