Ayushman Bharat beneficiaries now can get entitlement cards free

New Delhi: Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (PM-JAY) Beneficiaries can now procure their entitlement cards free of cost. The government on Friday waived off the fee of ₹30 per card that beneficiaries until now were required to pay to village level entrepreneurs field level operators under the common service centres (CSC) across the country.

However, for issuance of duplicate card or reprints, ₹15, excluding taxes, shall be charged from the beneficiary by the CSC. The arrangement came after the National Health Authority (NHA), the government agency responsible for implementation and management of the scheme on Friday signed a memorandum of understating (MoU) with CSCs under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology.

The MoU is aimed at generating new PVC beneficiary cards called “Ayushman cards” under the PM-JAY and further streamlining and easing the process of service delivery under the scheme.
