To enrol under the Ayushman Bharat scheme, you can follow the below mentioned steps:
Once you are deemed eligible for the Ayushman Bharat Scheme, you (patient) will be directed to the Ayushman Bharat Kiosk where the Pradhan Mantri Arogya Mitra will verify requisite documents. He will confirm the beneficiary identity and eligibility, using the beneficiary identification system. Post identification, the new beneficiary receives his/her e-card (golden record) which confirms enrolment under the PMJAY database.
The appointed executive (Pradhan Mantri Arogya Mitra), shares details on expenses with the beneficiary. The beneficiary is also briefed on the charges they have to bear in case they are not hospitalized (These are charges for diagnosis but not any other medical treatment). The Pradhan Mantri Arogya Mitra informs the beneficiary on the charges and what is covered under the Ayushman Bharat scheme.
In this step, the doctor conducts a diagnosis of the patient and provides details on his/her disease and the medical treatment required.
