PM Modi launches the world’s largest govt-funded healthcare plan

NEW DELHI, 23 SEP. Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday launched the Ayushman Bharat – Pradhan Mantri Jan Aarogya Yojana at an event in Ranchi in Jharkhand. Addressing the gathering at the event in Jharkhand capital, Prime Minister Modi said that the scheme would benefit the poorest people in the country.

"No other country in the world has such a large-scale healthcare program," the Prime Minister said.

According to the Prime Minister, more than 13,000 hospitals have been added as part of the scheme.

"Though we are launching this scheme, but I still pray that no one faces a situation where they need to go to a hospital to avail this scheme. And unfortunately if you face any such situation, this scheme will be there to help you," said the Prime Minister.

Over 10.74 crore vulnerable entitled families (approximately 50 crore beneficiaries) will be eligible for these benefits. The healthcare program is slated to provide cashless and paperless access to services for the beneficiary at the point of service.
