In today’s fast-paced world, access to quality healthcare is a fundamental right everyone should enjoy. Unfortunately, this privilege remains missing for many, especially those from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. Recognizing this gap, the Government of Maharashtra introduced the Mahatma Jyotirao Phule Jan Arogya Yojana in 2012, a revolutionary scheme to provide affordable and comprehensive healthcare services to the marginalized sections of society.
In a recent interview, the honorable Chief Minister Eknath Shinde said the scheme will now cover the state’s population of 12.5 crores. The Chief Minister also announced an increase in the health insurance coverage of the Mahatma Jyotirao Phule Jan Arogya Yojana (MPJAY) from INR 1.5 lakhs to INR 5 lakhs.
