3885.  SHRIMATI CHINTA ANURADHA

Will the Minister of HEALTH AND FAMILY WELFARE be pleased to state:

(a) whether the Ayushman Bharat – Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (AB-PMJAY) scheme has successfully contributed in curtailing Out-of-Pocket expenditures in the country; and

(b) if so, the details thereof, year-wise?

ANSWER
THE MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF HEALTH AND FAMILY WELFARE

(DR. BHARATI PRAVIN PAWAR)

(a) & (b): As of 21st March, 2022, hospital admissions worth Rs. 37,185 crore are authorised under Ayushman Bharat – Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (AB-PMJAY) since the inception of the scheme from 23.09.2018. Year-wise break-up thereof is as under:

Financial Year

Value of authorized hospital admissions (in crore of Rupees)

2018-19

2,838

2019-20

10,424

2020-21

9,542

2021-22

14,381

If these healthcare services were availed by the beneficiaries on their own, it would have resulted in out-of-pocket expenditure to the tune of 1.5 to 2 times the expenditure incurred under the scheme. The scheme has successfully contributed in curtailing out-of-pocket expenditure in the country.
