Like the original PMJAY this scheme has a provision of Rs 5 Lakh insurance coverage.

The Punjab government will bear the entire expense for the remaining beneficiaries. The scheme will include 200 government hospitals amongst others. The scheme will have 1,396 treatment packages implemented through over 450 empanelled hospitals. Surgical packages under the scheme include pre-hospitalisation expenses for three days and for a 15-day post-hospitalisation period.
