Ayushman Bharat PM-JAY
Convergence between Employees’ State Insurance Corporation (ESIC) and National Health Authority (NHA)
The Employees’ State Insurance Corporation (ESIC) has entered into a partnership with National Health Authority (NHA). This convergence between Ayushman Bharat – Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (AB PM-JAY) and Employees’ State Insurance Scheme (ESIS) will create an ecosystem wherein ESI beneficiaries will be able to access services at ABPM-JAY empanelled Hospitals and vice versa.
The convergence between PM-JAY and ESIC is a landmark initiative for the development of health systems in the country. This will leverage the presence of an established network of quality services providers under PM-JAY alongside fixed health benefit packages, thereby standardising services across schemes. Further, it will create higher demand for health services at ESIC empanelled hospitals that may be currently underutilised. This will support in improvement of infrastructure and facilities of such facilities, via utilisation of funds reimbursed under PMJAY.
This collaboration will ensure better medical care to the ESI beneficiaries besides curtailing expenditure borne by them for getting medical care services in the absence of ESIC health care delivery institution in their vicinity.
In the initial phase, a pilot was conducted in Ahmednagar, Maharashtra and Bidar, Karnataka wherein ESI beneficiaries of these districts got access to medical care services in PM-JAY empanelled hospitals.
On successful completion of this pilot project, the convergence of ESI Scheme with PM-JAY has been extended to 113 designated districts of 04 States i.e. Chhattisgarh, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. ESI beneficiaries of these 113 designated districts will be able to access medical care services in PM-JAY empaneled hospitals. They can avail secondary and tertiary care from the PM-JAY empanelled hospitals without any ceiling. The link to know designated districts and PM-JAY empaneled hospitals is given below.
