Ayushman Bharat Scheme, also known as PMJAY (Prime Minister Jan Arogya Yojana), was launched in April 2018, and ever since, Ayushman Bharat Diwas has been celebrated every year on 30th April. This national health protection plan was designed to help people from low-income families. It provides an individual with health coverage of Rs. 5,00,000 per annum.
The Ayushman Bharat Scheme is being implemented under the able leadership of our beloved prime minister Shri. Narendra Damodardas Modi. It includes coverage for bypass surgery, knee replacement and other life-threatening diseases and is available at a 15% lesser cost than other health schemes regulated by the central government. Due to its wide range of benefits and scale, it is considered the largest health insurance policy in the world. More than 75K wellness centers have been operationalized to provide healthcare benefits to the economically weaker sections of the society. By 2022, the government has targeted to create another 75K wellness centers across the country.
The Ayushman Bharat Scheme is especially beneficial for the poor and needy people living in the remotest areas of our country. Even after 75 years of Independence, the country’s remote places and rural sections lack modern health care facilities. To get basic health services, people have to visit the nearby cities. Often, people endure extreme hardship, sometimes even death, before they get any treatment. Furthermore, hospitalization and other medical services cost a fortune.
It is especially difficult for middle-class and lower-middle-class families to manage their medical expenses. With healthcare schemes like PMJAY, the Indian government is trying to put a smile across such people’s faces. It is indeed a credible and awe-inspiring initiative of the government.
However, many people are not yet completely aware of the AB-PMJAY initiatives. Educating about the various health schemes launched by the government can prove to be a life savior for such people. Also, it will provide them the much-needed financial assistance during a medical emergency.
Awareness and information about such government schemes can spread hope and positivity among the marginalized sections of society. You can take to social media platforms and talk about such initiatives that help underprivileged citizens.
Some people who live in remote areas might not even have access to the internet and smartphones. To reach out to these people, you can utilize an online platform like Ketto.
