Ayushman Bharat PMJAY, which provides health insurance to over 10 crore impoverished households in the country for up to Rs 5 lakh per year, has completed three years. This morning, the Central Government (MyGovIndia) also took to Twitter to share a tweet about it.
The programme began on September 23, 2018. ' Prime Minister Narendra Modi wrote in the tweet that if any member of a poor man's family falls ill, the entire family is worried, and his financial situation is adversely affected, and that Ayushman Bharat is a comprehensive approach to a healthy India. Clinical care, health treatment, and medicines are provided free of charge for three days prior to and 15 days following hospitalisation under this programme.
This programme has no restrictions on family size, age, or gender. Various pre-existing medical disorders and dangerous diseases can also be covered from the start with this plan. Hospital applications opened in June 2018 through an empanelment process. The Ayushman Bharat Yojana advised that people obtain benefits using Aadhaar in July 2018, but also stated that there was a route for those who did not have that identity card. On September 23, 2018, AB PM-JAY was first introduced in Ranchi, Jharkhand.
