Ayushman Bharat Yojana is a program which aims to provide a service to create a healthy, capable and content new India. It has two goals, one, creating a network of health and wellness infrastructure across the nation to deliver comprehensive primary healthcare services, and another is to provide insurance cover to at least 40 per cent of India’s population which is majorly deprived of secondary and tertiary care services. This centrally sponsored flagship scheme aims to provide an annual health cover of up to Rs. 5 lakh to vulnerable 10 crore families (approximately 50 crore persons – 40% of country’s population) based on Socio Economic and Caste Census database.

Ayushman Bharat Yojana was launched on 23 September 2018. Beneficiaries will receive Ayushman Bharat Family Health Cards. 

The scheme was launched in the background of 71st Round of National Sample Survey Organization (NSSO) which has found 85.9% of rural households and 82% of urban households to be having no access to healthcare insurance/assurance. More than 17% of Indian population spend at least 10% of household budgets for health services.
