Uttarakhand: 39 lakh golden cards associated with national portability, patients will be able to be treated in any hospital in the country

Golden Cards

Except for emergency service, a referral will be available for the rest of the treatment

Under the State Atal Ayushman Yojana, 39 lakh Golden Cards have been linked to National Portability. Now patients suffering from a serious illness with the Golden Card will be able to get treatment in any registered major hospital in the country. But there will be a system of referral from the government hospital.

There are two types of golden cardholders in the Atal Ayushman Yojana in the state. One, 5.37 lakh families of the state are included in the Ayushman scheme of the Center. Whereas the Trivendra government has given the benefit of Atal Ayushman Yojana to all 23 lakh families of the state from 25 December 2018 with its own resources. This has the facility of free treatment up to five lakhs.

On the Golden Card made in the State Ayushman Yojana, the facility was provided for treatment in 174 government and private hospitals registered within the state. Now, these have also been linked to National Portability. After this, all the Golden holders will get the facility of treatment of serious diseases in any registered major hospitals in the country.

10 to 15 percent more incentive to hospitals
Government and private hospitals certified by the National Institute of Bio-Science and Human (NIBH) will get 10 to 15 percent more incentives for treatment under Ayushman Yojana. At the same time, a 10 percent additional incentive is already given to the hospitals listed in the scheme in the hill areas.
