ABOUT AYUSHMAN BHARAT- PRADHAN MANTRI JAN AROGYA YOJANA (AB-PMJAY:
Ayushman Bharat –Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (AB-PMJAY) was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Ranchi, Jharkhand on September 23, 2018. India took a giant leap towards providing accessible and affordable healthcare to the common man with the launch of Ayushman Bharat – Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (AB-PMJAY) by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Under the vision of Ayushman Bharat, Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (AB-PMJAY) it was implemented so that each and every citizen receives his due share of health care. With Ayushman Bharat – Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana, the government is taking healthcare protection to a new aspirational level. This is the “world’s largest government-funded healthcare program” targeting more than 50 crore beneficiaries.
AB- PMJAY) will provide a cover of up to Rs. 5 lakhs per family per year, for secondary and tertiary care hospitalization. Over 10.74 crore vulnerable entitled families (approximately 50 crore beneficiaries) will be eligible for these benefits. PMJAY will provide cashless and paperless access to services for the beneficiary at the point of service. PMJAY will help reduce catastrophic expenditure for hospitalizations, which impoverishes people and will help mitigate the financial risk arising out of catastrophic health episodes. Entitled families will be able to use the quality health services they need without facing financial hardships.
PMJAY will become the world’s largest fully government-financed health protection scheme. It is a visionary step towards advancing the agenda of Universal Health Coverage. Ayushman Bharat is a progression towards promotive, preventive, curative, palliative and rehabilitative aspects of Universal Healthcare through the access to Health and Wellness Centers (HWCs) at the primary level and the provision of financial protection for accessing curative care at the secondary and tertiary levels through engagement with both public and private sector.
It adopts a continuum of care approach, comprising two inter-related components: The creation of 1,50,000 Health and Wellness Centres which will bring health care closer to the homes of the people. These centres will provide Comprehensive Primary Health Care (CPHC), covering both maternal and child health services and non-communicable diseases, including free essential drugs and diagnostic services. The first Health and Wellness Centre was launched by the Prime Minister at Jangla, Bijapur, Chhatisgarh on 14th April 2018.
The second component is the Pradhan Mantri Jan ArogyaYojana (PMJAY) which provides health protection cover to poor and vulnerable families for secondary and tertiary care. The Health and Wellness Centres will play a critical role in creating awareness about PMJAY, screening for non-communicable diseases, and follow-up of hospitalization cases among others.
