The Uttar Pradesh government has launched a special outreach drive to ensure that every person eligible for the Ayushman Bharat scheme gets enrolled. The drive, which will continue till December 31, aims to cover all the 3.48 crore people who are eligible for the scheme in the state.
The Ayushman Bharat scheme is a national health insurance scheme that provides a cover of up to ₹5 lakh per family per year for secondary and tertiary healthcare. The scheme is being implemented in all states and Union Territories of India.
The UP government has set a target of enrolling 1 crore people in the scheme during the drive. To achieve this target, the government has set up over 20,000 camps across the state. The camps will be open from 10 am to 4 pm daily.

The Ayushman Bharat scheme has been widely praised for its potential to provide affordable healthcare to millions of Indians. The UP government’s drive is a welcome step towards ensuring that all eligible people in the state can benefit from the scheme.
Benefits of the Ayushman Bharat Scheme:
- It provides affordable healthcare to millions of Indians.
