11 crore Ayushman family cards to be issued

In this year's budget, the Narendra Modi government announced a health insurance scheme named Ayushman Bharat, which has been billed to be the world's biggest health insurance scheme.

The news is that the Central Government is planning to hand deliver about 11 crore Ayushman family cards with personalized letters and more in near future.  

Towards this, village contact programmes named Ayushman Pakhwaras will be held.  ASHA workers will be deployed for door-to-door delivery.  A 24X7 call centre will be started in Delhi to take queries.  This centre will facilitate national portability.
