Uber partners with Ayushman Bharat to facilitate free healthcare for drivers
Under its Uber CARE initiative for driver and delivery partners, the firm will facilitate the establishment of common service centres (CSC's) at Partners Seva Kendras across India.

Uber has partnered with Ayushman Bharat, the government's flagship healthcare insurance scheme, to facilitate free healthcare for several drivers associated with the firm. 

The National Health Authority (NHA), the apex body implementing the Ayushman Bharat - Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (AB-PMJAY) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the ride-sharing company. 

Under its Uber CARE initiative for driver and delivery partners, the firm will facilitate the establishment of common service centres (CSC's) at Partners Seva Kendras across India. The CSC's village level entrepreneurs at these centers will be helping to verify eligibility and issue e-cards to drivers for the Ayushman Bharat Scheme.

Dr Indu Bhushan, CEO of NHA, said, "Reaching out to the last mile beneficiary lies at the core of the goal of Ayushman Bharat PM-JAY of providing cashless quality inpatient care for serious illnesses with a view to protect more than 10 crore economically vulnerable families or 50 crore people from catastrophic healthcare expenditure that impoverishes more than 6 crore people every year."

"Through this partnership with Uber, we hope to reach out to lakhs of people and their families in the driver and delivery community to bring them benefits of this transformative scheme and help secure their health and economic security," Bhushan added.
