Ayushman cards of 6678 beneficiaries activated in four days in Hamirpur

Hamirpur, 24 June (H.S.). A ten-day campaign is being run to activate the Ayushman card of the beneficiaries of Ayushman Bharat scheme, which will run till June 30. Under this, teams of officers and employees are activating the cards of the beneficiaries by doing village-village camps. The cards of 6678 beneficiaries have been activated within four days.

Chief Medical Officer Dr. AK Rawat informed that there are 1,27,561 beneficiary families of Ayushman Bharat scheme in the district, in which the total number of members is 5.55 lakh. So far, the department has connected 1.44 lakh population to this scheme by activating the cards of 58,528 families, who will get free treatment up to Rs 5 lakh from affiliated hospitals in case of illness. There are 35,676 Antyodaya cardholders out of the total beneficiary households with a population of 1.21 lakh.

The CMO told that the head of the family gets his Ayushman card activated, but leaves the other members of the family. For this reason the target has not been achieved so far. He appealed to the card holders not to activate their card alone, but to get the names of the members of the family, whose names are in the ration card, made and activated by them. Camps have been organized for card activation. The beneficiary should go to their nearest camps and get the card activated so that in case of illness, they can get the benefit of the scheme.
