Govt develops online facility to register, download Golden Cards

SRINAGAR — To achieve the complete saturation of Golden Cards, the Government has developed an online facility for the citizens through which they can register for Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (AB PM-JAY)-SEHAT scheme and download their Golden Cards at the comfort of their homes.

The citizens have to visit the website and register themselves with details of ration cards issued by the J&K Food and Supply Department and Aadhar Card and download their Golden cards. The initiative has been taken to ensure all the citizens get Golden Cards which provide health insurance cover up to five lakh rupees.

Notably, State Health Agency (SHA) recently rolled out an ambitious door-to-door exercise to achieve 100 per cent saturation under the Ayushman Bharat PMJAY SEHAT scheme by the end of August 2022. Under the initiative of ‘Gaon Gaon Ayushman’, State Health Agency has also started to reach out to even last mile villages which remain cut off from the rest of the world due to adverse weather conditions so as to percolate the benefits of the scheme down to every beneficiary.

Recently, Principal Secretary, Health and Medical Education, M.K Diwedi in a high-level meeting directed for the launching of a result-oriented door-to-door campaign in all areas of J&K to achieve 100 per cent saturation by end of August.

Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (AB PM-JAY)-SEHAT scheme has crossed a major milestone of providing five lakh free treatments to the citizens of J&K UT recently. This scheme has become a ray of hope for poor families who couldn’t afford health treatment at high-end medical institutes in the country.

Recently, a special initiative was launched for women and their families associated with JKRLM to provide them free treatment.

Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (AB PM-JAY) SEHAT scheme in Jammu and Kashmir provides health insurance cover of Rs 5 lakh per family per year to all the residents at empanelled hospitals. The scheme covers up to three days of pre-hospitalization and 15 days of post-hospitalization expenses including diagnostics and medicines.
