The scheme was launched at Netaji Subhas Vidyaniketan, where Saha expressed that this initiative is a gift from the double engine government to the people of Tripura.

Chief Minister Dr Manik Saha, who also holds the health portfolio, decided to roll out this scheme to ensure people suffering from critical illnesses can avail of free treatment.

A total of 167 hospitals have been empaneled where beneficiaries can get treatment without spending a single rupee. After the scheme was launched on February 15, 2024, health cover worth Rs 5 lakh for all families in the state was assured, as per the ANI.

The scheme has helped a lot of families with medical treatment.

As per the data shared by the National Health Mission Tripura Chapter, the implementing agency of the scheme, since its inception a total of 4,062 individual patients have availed cashless treatment in the hospitals of the scheme, with the total treatment cost standing at Rs 5,05,22,633.

"Ayushman Mitras in hospitals have been instructed to visit each bed and collect patient data. If the patient is not eligible for PM-JAY, their name gets automatically enrolled in CM-JAY. Special camps have also been conducted in almost all Gram Panchayats, Village Councils, and ward offices so that people can access the cards," said an official, the news agency reported.
