Edelweiss General Insurance

Digital insurer Edelweiss General Insurance (EGI) is the first insurer to partner with the Ministry of Health, Government of India, to help create digital health IDs for all the people of India. ABHA (Ayushman Bharat Health Account) is a 14-digit number that helps users to share and access their health records digitally with registered healthcare providers. This initiative by EGI is a small contribution to the National Health Authority’s (NHA) mission of creating a national digital health ecosystem for the country.

All customers of EGI and the public at large can now easily generate their unique ABHA number through the company’s website www.edelweissinsurance.com. It is a very simple process. They just need to log on to the EGI website and follow the instructions on the ABHA microsite. Their ID will be generated in a few minutes. EGI is communicating with all its existing customers and encouraging them to get their ABHA numbers. New customers will also be prompted to get their ABHA at the time of policy issue.

Commenting on the initiative, Shanai Ghosh, Executive Director & CEO, Edelweiss General Insurance, said, “Ayushman Bharat is creating a Digital Health Stack for India which will have a transformational impact on the healthcare delivery system in the country; we are truly privileged to partner in this mission. This program will enable and empower the people of this country to access medical diagnosis, treatment, and financing from verified healthcare providers and payors, seamlessly across the country. I would personally urge every citizen to come forward and generate their ABHA number.”

ABHA is the first step toward creating safe and secure digital health records. While it is optional, having an ABHA number helps you access and share your personal health records digitally, allowing you to receive your digital lab reports, diagnosis, prescriptions, etc., from ABDM registered healthcare providers and doctors anywhere in the country in a paperless manner. The National Health Authority (NHA) is the apex body responsible for implementing this program under the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission.
