Ayushman Cards Change! Ayushman card is going to have some important changes. The Ministry of Health has given information in this regard. The Ayushman cards will be linked to the flagship health scheme of the Center as well as the logo of the state and the names of state-specific health schemes. That is, as a co-brand.

Under this change, except Delhi, West Bengal and Odisha, all other states and union territories have given consent for co-branding of cards. After its implementation, its name will be changed to ‘Ayushman Card’. The National Health Authority (NHA) is working to streamline the beneficiary cards issued under the scheme. At the same time, it has been decided to bring more ‘integrity and uniformity’ in it.

Ministry has said in a statement that this card will be bilingual, in English and local language. In this new card, both Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (AB PM-JAY) and state-specific people will have ‘equal space allotted’. In this, along with ABPM-JAY, the name of the state scheme will also be there.

Why the change is happening

The ministry has said that behind this change, our aim is to bring more uniformity in this card by working with the states. The statement said that the NHA is in constant touch with the states to issue co-branded cards. Barring a few, most states have adopted co-branding guidelines.

So far 14.12 crore Ayushman cards have been issued under this scheme. Under this scheme, about 18.81 crore persons have been verified till August 17.
Beneficiaries will get full financial assistance from the Center for issuance of co-branded cards. The Health Ministry said that the authority will provide full financial assistance under the central scheme as well as the state scheme.
