Chiranjeevi scheme is becoming a sham like ‘elephant’s teeth

Published on

Chiranjeevi scheme : The private hospitals that are connected have packages of diseases but in the name of OPD check-up they empty the pockets of the patients.

Any scheme related to public welfare brings a new sky of expectations for the people. But, when the full benefit of a scheme is not seen on the ground, then the scheme remains just a mere ‘elephant tusk’. The Chief Minister Chiranjeevi Health Insurance Scheme in Rajasthan is also similar, in which the government’s intention to include more and more people seems to be falling short.

The reason for this is also government indifference. If seen, the provisions of this scheme are quite good, but due to shortcomings in implementation, Chiranjeevi cards are becoming more of a dilemma than a convenience for the people. When the government implemented this scheme, it seemed that treatment would now be within the reach of the common man.

Treatment available especially in expensive hospitals. But, the truth is that many big hospitals involved in multi-specialty services have stayed away from this scheme.

People are seen wandering for treatment of diseases related to heart, urology, gynecology and gastroenterology. The private hospitals that are connected definitely have packages for all the diseases, but in the name of examination in OPD, they clean the patient’s pocket. Actually, the scheme is only for admitted patients.

If the patient shows up in OPD, he is first asked to get tested. The problem is that the patient himself has to bear the huge expenses for the tests done before admission. There is no refund for this either.

Despite having Chiranjeevi Yojana card, most private hospitals shy away from admitting patients under this scheme. Private hospitals allege that the amount of old schemes like Bhamashah Health Insurance has not been reimbursed to many hospitals till now.

In such a situation, these hospitals put up posters and publicity material of Chiranjeevi Yojana for show, but keep trying to turn away the patients by making some excuse or the other. One reason is that the amount of many packages of Chiranjeevi Yojana is less as compared to RGHS.

Its money comes to the account of the concerned hospital with delay. In this context, the concern of private hospital operators is also justified. In such a situation, there should be continuous review whether people are getting the benefits of the scheme made for public welfare or not. – Ramesh Sharma
