AB-MGRSBY: Ayushman Bharat Mahatma Gandhi Rajasthan Swasthya Bima Yojana - Acko

People belonging to low-income groups, unfortunately, cannot avail facilities like salaried jobs or health care. However, the government is striving hard to eliminate challenges related to availing medical facilities. Schemes like Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana and Ayushman Bharat Mahatma Gandhi Rajasthan Swasthya Bima Yojana are being introduced for providing quality health care services.

In this article we will focus on Ayushman Bharat Mahatma Gandhi Rajasthan Swasthya Bima Yojana for scheme related details:

What is Ayushman Bharat Mahatma Gandhi Rajasthan Swasthya Bima Yojana (AB-MGRSBY)?

Ayushman Bharat Mahatma Gandhi Rajasthan Swasthya Bima Yojana is a health insurance scheme introduced under Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot’s government. It was announced on 30th of August 2019. The AB-MGRSBY is expected to be very helpful for the beneficiaries because it is an integration of AB-PMJAY and BSBY schemes. These two schemes were merged to include more number of eligible families into one scheme and provide quality health care services.

Features And Benefits Of AB-MGRSBY:

AB-MGRSBY is a beneficial health insurance plan that has the following features and benefits:

1. Cashless Hospitalization:

The beneficiaries of Ayushman Bharat Mahatma Gandhi Rajasthan Swasthya Bima Yojana can avail cashless hospitalization in a network/empanelled hospital. This list is available in this article under the heading “List of Hospitals That Cover under AB-MGRSBY”. As the name suggests, a cashless treatment means that the beneficiary does not have to bear the cost of a medical treatment. These costs will be borne by the government.

2. Coverage For Medical Needs:

AB-MGRSBY offers holistic coverage that pays for the entire cycle of a medical emergency, including follow-up care. Here is a list of medical facilities that are covered under the scheme:

  • Hospitalization expense benefits
  • Daycare treatment benefits if applicable
  • Follow-up care benefits
  • Pre and post hospitalization expense benefits
  • Newborn child/children benefits

3. High Sum Insured:

AB-MGRSBY offers a very good amount of sum insured to the beneficiary family. The main sum insured is Rs. 5 lakh per year for each family covered under the scheme. It is segmented as the following:

  • Rs. 50,000 for secondary illnesses
  • Rs. 4,50,000 for tertiary illness

4. A Large Number Of Empanelled Hospitals:

More the number of hospitals empanelled under the scheme, the more it is beneficial at the time of a medical emergency. If an empanelled hospital is present in the vicinity of the beneficiary, he/she can reach there faster and treatment can begin. The AB-MGRSBY has many hospitals registered to treat patients under the scheme.

5. Health Insurance On Family Floater Basis:

A health insurance plan can be of many types. The most common types are Individual, family floater, and group health insurance plans. Among these, the AB-MGRSBY scheme is a family-floater plan where the sum insured can be used by all members of the family. This is beneficial as compared to other plans because a balance can be created while making claims. For example, individual members of a family can require treatment at different times. A family floater plan can ensure that all members can avail proper medical facilities.

What is Not Covered?

Things that are not covered under an insurance policy are called exclusions of the policy. An insurance company will not be liable to settle a claim raised against the exclusion of the policy. Here are the things that are not covered under AB-MGRSBY:
