About Mukhyamantri Amrutum Yojana

Only 15% of Indians are protected by health insurance coverage, which leaves a vast majority of the population to finance medical care out of their pocket. However, growing awareness about health and lifestyle diseases and the desire to be financially prepared to meet the high costs of medical treatments is leading many to purchase health insurance for their family.

 

However, to low-income families, the government offers several fully-funded schemes in states across India. Mukhyamantri Amrutum Yojana or MA Yojana is one such scheme for those residing in Gujarat. Let us understand this government-sponsored health scheme in detail.

Mukhyamantri Amrutum Vatsalaya, also known as MA Yojana, was inaugurated in September 2012 to provide financial assistance to those living Below Poverty Line (BPL).
