In March 2018, the government of India approved a publicly funded health insurance scheme that is officially called the Prime Minister (or Pradhan Mantri) Jan Arogya Yojana (PM-JAY), also known as Ayushman Bharat (and known colloquially as “Modicare” after Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi). With funding from a Duke Global Health Institute pilot grant, the Center for Policy Impact in Global Health is conducting a mixed methods study designed to: (i) understand the key challenges in the implementation and financing of the PM-JAY in the state of Uttar Pradesh, India and (ii) determine whether the PM-JAY meets the needs of poor and marginalized populations in the state.
