National Health Authority has launched a campaign “Swasthya ki Chaanv, Shehar ho ya Gaanv” to reach out migrants in order to educate and empower them to avail free healthcare services under AB PM-JAY. Presenting you the glimpses of the efforts taken by NHA in helping migrant population to access healthcare services across the country through portability feature.
Ayushman Bharat provides free health coverage at the secondary and tertiary level to the poor. So far, NHA has been empanelling private hospitals on specific criteria. Empanelment means any identified beneficiary can walk into an empanelled private hospital and get free treatment of up to ₹5 lakh per family per year.
The government would also empanel private laboratories. This would be a major step for poor patients as they can get themselves tested for free at these laboratories. So far, these patients would get tested at laboratories in private hospitals and could not avail the walk-in facility if only tests needed to be conducted.
