The Government of India under the leadership of Shri. Narendra Modi launched the Ayushman Bharat Yojana on 23rd of September 2018, to provide free of cost healthcare facilities to  40% of citizens living in the poor and backward areas.  People who are economically and financially weak can benefit from the Ayushman Bharat Yojana by availing free medical treatment  from a family doctor present in the local primary health center.  The Ayushman Bharat Yojana turned out to be a hit as the scheme was able to cover around forty five lakh beneficiaries and 10 crore e-cards have been issued to the citizens and approximately twenty thousand hospitals were empanelled under this scheme.

The e-card covers three days of pre-hospitalisation and two weeks of post-hospitalisation expenses.
