Today, Prime Minister Imran Khan will unveil the Naya Pakistan Qaumi Sehat Card scheme in Islamabad (Wednesday).
Under the scheme, all families in Islamabad, Punjab, Azad Jammu, Kashmir, Gilgit Baltistan, and Tharparkar will receive free medical treatment worth up to Rs. 1 million per year at government and private hospitals. The card will be issued in the name of the family’s head, who will be in charge of registering with the authorities via the application.
Cancer, kidney transplantation, chronic diseases, thalassemia, diabetes complications, heart disease, nervous system surgery, organ failure, and accident treatment are all covered by the Sehat Card facility. It has a panel of 43 public and private hospitals in Rawalpindi and Islamabad where cardholders and family members can receive free treatment.
The government of Punjab launched the ‘Naya Pakistan Health Card Mobile Application’ earlier this month to provide information about the federal government’s ‘Sehat Sahulat Program’. It has also built up dedicated help desks at the tehsil level in the offices of Assistant Commissioners.
People can also call the helpline 0800-09009 to collect information about the free treatment under the program.
