According to sources while several states have welcome Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s new health insurance scheme Ayushman Bharat, five states, however, have rejected the same. Meanwhile the Prime Minister launched Ayushman Bharat, also called the PM Jan Arogya Yojana, on September 23 in Ranchi and it targets low income families, particularly those in rural pockets of the country, and aims to cover each family with health insurance amounting up to Rs 5 lakh.



Accordingly Kerala, Telangana, Odisha, Delhi, and Punjab have announced that they will not implement Ayushman Bharat until their concerns about the same are addressed. Meanwhile Ayushman Bharat has been called the world's largest government funded universal healthcare coverage program.

Presently 31 states and Union Territories are geared up to incorporate Ayushman Bharat in their state’s healthcare policies. Moreover under the program roughly Rs 10 crore will be allocated to families below the poverty line who will receive coverage of up to Rs 5 lakh. Moreover when speaking to TNM, Dr T Narasinga Reddy, Telangana president of the Indian Medical Association, said, “Under the state run Aarogyasri program, nearly 85% of the population is covered and the Ayushman Bharat, on the other hand, would only cover only 85 lakh families.”
