Ayushman Bharat Yojana or National Health Protection Scheme[1] is a program which aims to provide a service to create a healthy, capable and content new India. It has two goals, one, creating a network of health and wellness infrastructure across the nation to deliver comprehensive primary healthcare services, and another is to provide insurance cover to at least 40 per cent of India's population which is majorly deprived of secondary and tertiary care services.[2][3] Indu Bhushan appointed as a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Dr Dinesh Arora appointed as deputy ceo of Ayushman Bharat Yojana.[4]


Ayushman Bharat consists of two major elements.1. National Health Protection Scheme. 2. Wellness centres. National Health Protection Scheme will provide cashless treatment to patients.
