In order to provide health cover to every citizen of Jammu and Kashmir, the administration is working on the ground and even the pocket expenditure made by the patients would be reimbursed in future.
Recently Chief Secretary of Jammu and Kashmir chaired the 5th Governing Council Meeting of State Health Agency (SHA) and also reviewed its performance regarding the implementation of Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Aarogya Yojana (AB-PMJAY)/AB-PMJAY Sehat.
He impressed upon the officers to ensure that each person is facilitated to obtain the available benefits. He asked them to work for registering each person under the scheme so that the end person receives free medical care as envisaged under the scheme.
He emphasized upon the health authorities to work towards creating health history of the patients starting from those of students in our schools.
He urged them to make it convenient for every person to register for the scheme at his doorsteps. He maintained that the scheme should be saturated fully in both urban and rural areas.
He exhorted upon them to conduct the Governing body meetings quarterly for timely confirmation of intervening decisions taken during this period.
He made out that both audit and accounting of the scheme should be strengthened at every level for maintaining transparency in the effective implementation of this welfare scheme.
