Ayushman Card Registration

Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (PM-JAY), launched in 2018, aims to provide free healthcare coverage to approximately 50 crore people by covering their hospital expenses at a range of hospitals. Each year, the program allocates up to ₹5 lakh per family for health insurance.

The scheme covers hospitalization costs, pre- and post-hospitalization, medication, over 1,929 medical procedures (including major surgeries and follow-up treatments), and includes coverage for individuals above 70 years.
