Raipur, Chhattisgarh: Under the Ayushman Bharat-Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana Dr. Khubchand Baghel Health Assistance Scheme, now kidney transplant surgery and brain angiography will also be done. Many high-end medicines have also been included in this along with new packages related to heart diseases, complex spine surgeries, and blood disorders. The Health Department of the State Government had sent proposals to the National Health Agency from time to time to revise the rates of treatment packages and include new packages. 

The rates of about 800 packages have been revised. With the inclusion of new packages and high-end medicines in the scheme and an increase in the rates of old packages, the hospitals registered under the scheme will be able to provide more medical services to the patients.

Patients can get CAPD bags for a month from the identified government hospitals. The Health Department and the National Health Mission will jointly provide this facility. A package of Rs 22 thousand has been fixed for one month’s CAPD bag.
