100 percent “saturation” districts

This ”saturation” is in respect of getting registered and availing of the benefits under world’s largest health insurance scheme with a limit of Rs.5 lakh per family per year known as Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Aarogya Yojna (ABPMJAY) . The three districts of Jammu and Kashmir namely Shopian ,Kulgam and Ganderbal have created history of sorts by full enrolment for eligibility under the health scheme fully financed by the Government of India . While on the one hand, such a whole hearted fuller participation of the people in the scheme silences those critics who just for the sake of criticism cast aspersions on its implementation for secondary and tertiary care hospitalisation with three days pre-hospitalisation and 15 days of post hospitalisation expenses including diagnostics and medicines, it opens up opportunities for other districts in the UT to have all families covered under the said scheme in that all those associated with the scheme from the Government agencies like the District Administration, State health agencies and other personnel shall have to spread awakening among those people / families who have yet not got associated with it and organising registration drives and extending a helping hand to them in this regard.
It may be recalled that Jammu and Kashmir has made the flagship scheme special in that all people in the UT , irrespective of economic status are entitled to availing of the requisite treatment facilities quite free at designated empanelled hospitals in the country under the scheme. While the three districts have shown the way as to how benefits under such a splendid health scheme could be reaped when needed , the other districts could also make news with such performance so that in the entire UT of Jammu and Kashmir every family got itself registered under this scheme. Under the aim of the UT Government of providing services to the people right at their doorsteps , the State Health Agencies having launched ”door to door” contact for achieving 100 percent saturation under the scheme so that “Golden Cards” with a limit of Rs.5 lakh were issued to maximum number of persons / families.
