PM Modi to distribute Ayushman Cards

Under the scheme, Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana–Ma Amrutam (PMJAY-MA), Prime Minister Narendra Modi will distribute Ayushman cards to the beneficiaries today at an event.

According to an official communication, Ayushman PVC cards (made of polyvinyl chloride material which can be carried easily) are to be circulated to more than 50 lakh beneficiaries under the PMJAY-MA scheme in Gujarat.

The Centre’s PMJAY scheme of providing healthcare facilities to the economically weaker sections was integrated with Gujarat’s Mukhyamantri Amrutam (MA) and Mukhyamantri Amrutam Vatsalya (MAV) healthcare schemes in 2019.

As a result, all beneficiaries of the state schemes were suitable to get PMJAY-MA cards, the release said.

PMJAY-MA cards were issued to 1.58 crore beneficiaries in Gujarat since the integration of two schemes, stated the State Government.

“From September 2021 till date, more than 50 lakh cards have been issued under the chief minister’s leadership. Newly printed Ayushman PVC cards will be given to these beneficiaries,” the release said.

Gujarat’s Minister of Health and Family Welfare Rushikesh Patel will attend the state-level programme. Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya will join the event virtually.

Under the Ayushman Bharat-PMJAY, the world’s largest health insurance scheme, health cover of up to Rs. 5 lakh is provided per family, as per the government website.

After the announcement of the Ayushman Bharat-PMJAY in 2019, the Gujarat government integrated the Mukhyamantri Amrutam and Mukhyamantri Amrutam Vatsalya schemes with it, and beneficiaries of these three schemes were issued co-branded cards under the PMJAY-MA.
