Free. He came to know from Bhupendra of Banshilal’s village that Chiranjeevi scheme provides treatment for free and Bhupendra has got treatment from this scheme, then Banshilal gathered courage and reached Geetanjali Hospital in Udaipur. And the good news is that the costly treatment of about 8 lakhs has become free of cost, Dinesh who could not even walk due to serious heart disease, has started taking a walk today. What’s more, Dinesh’s treatment adds another chapter to the Chiranjeevi health insurance scheme. The acmo machine which was allowed free of cost in heart transplant under this scheme, was allowed by the government in case of Dinesh’s complicated heart surgery, which will prove to be life-saving for patients by becoming an example in such cases in future.
