With a health crisis looming over nations for well over a year now, governments and state governments are now finding ways to deal with this. Healthcare crises can only be resolved with healthcare efforts, and while they can be quite a task to achieve, it definitely is not impossible. The plagues and pandemics humanity has dealt with before stands testament to our undying spirit and solution-finding capabilities.

In order to meet the pandemic head-on, the Jharkhand government has come up with the Jharkhand Ayushman Bharat Mukhyamantri Jan Arogya yojana 2021 – a statewide version of the Ayushman Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana.

Implementation of the Jharkhand Ayushman Bharat Jan Arogya yojana

There will be a list of applicants that will be put up. Each person whose name appears on the data list can avail of health insurance benefits of up to ₹5 lakh. The amount under the Ayushman Bharat Jan Arogya yojana would be applicable for Secondary and tertiary hospitalisation and the scheme goes as far as to cover all pre-existing diseases right from day 1.

The prime objective of the scheme is to provide top quality health care services to the residents of Jharkhand, especially those people who are living in remote and non-accessible areas of the state. This is to break the chain of transmission that has taken roots in the interiors of the state and efforts are now being made to make help accessible in areas where there was not any before.
