Barnwal, on Saturday, also said that this insurance cver will be issued to the media persons across the State, under the Ayushman Bharat Yojana, popularly known as ‘Modi care’.
Ayushman Bharat Yojana was introduced by PM Modi seven months ago on April 14th 2018, with two major goals. One, is to create a wide network of health care infrastructure across the country, so that all types of people would be able to access the facilities. Two is to create 40% of insurance cover across the country, in a population where secondary and tertiary services are deprived.
This Insurance cover in Jharkhand will also benefit the family of the media persons, who are important stakeholders, said Barnwal who is also the secretary of Jharkhand Information and Public Relations Department.
