How to Apply for Ayushman Bharat Card: Step by Step Process

The Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (PM-JAY) is a government-funded health insurance scheme that provides free or low-cost hospitalization to poor and vulnerable families in India. The scheme covers a wide range of medical expenses, including hospitalization, surgery, diagnostics, and medicines.

One of the key benefits of the PM-JAY scheme is that it provides a PVC card to each eligible beneficiary. This card serves as proof of enrollment in the scheme and can be used to access healthcare services at any empanelled hospital.

If you are an eligible beneficiary of the PM-JAY scheme, you can apply for a PVC card by following these steps:

  1. Visit the official website of the Ayushman Bharat PM-JAY scheme.
  2. Click on the “Apply for PVC Card” link.
  3. Enter your Aadhaar number and other required details.
  4. Upload a scanned copy of your Aadhaar card.
  5. Click on the “Submit” button.

Your application will be processed and you will be issued a PVC card within a few weeks.

Here are some additional details about the application process:
  • You can apply for a PVC card even if you already have an e-card.
  • The application process is free of charge.
  • You can apply for a PVC card in person at any CSC (Common Service Centre) or online.

If you have any questions about the application process, you can contact the Ayushman Bharat PM-JAY helpline number: 14555 or 1800-111-565.

Benefits of Having a PVC Card

There are several benefits to having a PVC card under the Ayushman Bharat PM-JAY scheme. These include:

  • The card is a more durable and secure form of proof of enrollment than an e-card.
  • The card can be used to access healthcare services at any empanelled hospital, regardless of your location.
  • The card can be used to claim reimbursement for medical expenses incurred at empanelled hospitals.

How to Use Your PVC Card

To use your PVC card, you will need to present it to the hospital at the time of admission. The hospital will then verify your eligibility and provide you with the necessary treatment.

If you need to claim reimbursement for medical expenses, you can submit your claim form along with your PVC card to the relevant authority. The authority will then process your claim and reimburse you for the eligible expenses.


The Ayushman Bharat PVC card is a valuable asset for all beneficiaries of the PM-JAY scheme. It is a more durable and secure form of proof of enrollment, and it can be used to access healthcare services at any empanelled hospital. If you are an eligible beneficiary of the PM-JAY scheme, I encourage you to apply for a PVC card.
