Rajasthan on Thursday began the registration for an insurance scheme under which each family in the state can claim up to Rs five lakh every year for medical expenses.

 The state began the registration for Chiranjeevi Health Insurance Scheme, announced by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot in the state budget 2021-22.

“Rajasthan has become the first state in the country, where each family will get health insurance of Rs 5 lakh each year. People can get registered and be assured of cashless treatment,” Gehlot claimed in a tweet.

 He said the registrations for the government's cashless treatment for all have begun in the state from today.

“It is one of our biggest health care schemes aimed at providing medical relief to all residents of Rajasthan,” he said.
