The “Right to Health Bill” grants residents of the state the right to get emergency treatment and care from any public health institution, healthcare facility, or authorized healthcare center "without prepayment of the appropriate fee or charges."
As stated in the Bill, all public health institutions and some private facilities will offer free healthcare services, including consultations, medications, diagnostics, emergency transport, procedures, and emergency care, subject to the terms laid out in the rules, which are currently being developed. Also, all citizens will have the right to get emergency care and treatment for unavoidable crises without having to pay any upfront fees or costs. No public or private hospital may postpone treatment in a medicolegal situation, according to the law, just because of a police clearance.
Rajasthan became the first state to achieve this by passing the Right to Health Law a few days back, granting all state residents access to free outpatient (OPD) and inpatient (IPD) care at all public health institutions.
Furthermore, some private hospitals will offer comparable healthcare treatments without charge.
