Union ministry of health on Friday started the process of consultation with the states to share initial details of the proposed National Health Protection Scheme (NHPS) under Ayushman Bharat.

Detailed discussions will be held with the states governments and relevant stakeholders in days to come, with the objective of assessing preparedness of the states, learning from the experiences of those that already have health insurance scheme running successfully, officials said.

In order to engage with the state governments so as to finalise the contours of the scheme, six working groups were formed on processes, and suggestions will be incorporated in the broad operational guidelines for implementing NHPS.
