Prior to the 2019 polls, the NDA Government had approached the State Government to implement Ayushman Bharat scheme in Odisha, which was rejected by the State Government.

The State scheme covers 70 lakh families in its ambit. Besides, the Government has signed agreements with 218 high-profile hospitals inside the State and outside too for any emergency treatment of patients.
 
Having failed in its attempt to persuade the previous BJD Government to implement the Ayushman Bharat scheme in Odisha during the end part of its first regime, the NDA Government-2.0.  under the Prime Ministership of Narendra Modi has started its second attempt hoping for a successful negotiation with the State Government.
 
More rounds of talks are needed as the State Government has presented several issues, which needs clarifications from the Union Government and after that more rounds of talks will take place, said a senior officer.
