To scale up enrolment and e-cards generation under the Ayushman Bharat-Sarbat Sehat Bima Yojana, Deputy Commissioner Ghanshyam Thori asked all Common Service Centres (CSCs) to ensure 1,000 enrolments and e-cards generation daily.

Chairing a meeting with the entrepreneurs running CSCs across the district, the DC said the Sarbat Sehat Bima Yojana could empower people, especially the underprivileged sections of society, to make the social security system more robust.

Thori said under this scheme, beneficiaries could avail the benefit of cashless treatment up to Rs 5 lakh from various empanelled private hospitals, adding the CSCs could play a pivotal role in achieving this goal. He said there were about 200 CSCs in the district and with the concerted efforts of each one of them, as many as 1,000 enrolments and e-cards generation could be done daily.

Motivating the operators, the DC said the top performing CSCs would be felicitated at the district-level Republic Day function at Guru Gobind Singh Stadium. He asked all operators to display the services under this scheme outside their CSCs, so that people can avail the benefit.

Thori said all community health centres, sub-divisional hospitals, CSCs, and the district hospital were providing enrolment and e-card generation services under this scheme. He called upon people to carry their Aadhaar cards while visiting these establishments to avail on the spot enrolment and e-card generation facilities.

The DC said all 13 government health institutions and 57 private hospitals were empanelled in the district, where people can seek cashless treatment up to Rs5 lakh. He said the list of empanelled hospitals and eligibility of the beneficiaries can be viewed at sha.punjab.gov.in.

The scheme offers 1,579 packages to beneficiaries including 180 packages reserved for public hospitals, of which 25 packages were referable to private hospitals, the DC said.

He said the Punjab Government had appointed Vidal Health Insurance TPA to carry out enrolment and e-card generation tasks. The company was holding mobile camps at various locations in the district, of which one permanent camp was set up at type-1 Sewa Kendra at the District Administrative Complex, he said.

The company has also set up exclusive camps for J-form holder farmers at the premises of market committees across the district.
