The Meghalaya Government has enhanced the Megha Health Insurance Scheme (MHIS) Phase-5 and Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (PMJAY) from Rs 5 lakh to Rs 5,30,000; incorporating an expanded list of benefits under the scheme.

All eligible beneficiaries, belonging to Meghalaya, excluding the state and central government employees can avail such benefits.

Meghalaya, where the Aadhaar rollout had been opposed, still has about 40% of people without the document and hospitals not accepting the MHIS card without Aadhaar seeding has been a cause of concern for them.
