New Rule for CGHS Abha Link (Mandatory)

All those central govt. employees enrolled in Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) will now have to compulsorily link their CGHS beneficiary ID with their Ayushman Bharat Health Account (ABHA) ID. In an office memorandum dated March 28, 2024, Dept. of Health & Family Welfare said, "It has now been decided that linking CGHS beneficiary ID with ABHA ID shall be mandatory w.e.f 1st April." It further said, "The linking of CGHS beneficiary ID with ABHA ID shall be completed within 30 days by all existing CGHS beneficiaries."

Before linking your CGHS beneficiary ID with ABHA ID, let's understand what it is and how it will help central government employees. Here is the step-by-step process of linking CGHS beneficiary ID with ABHA ID.

What is Ayushman Bharat Health Account ID or ABHA ID?

When you go to a government hospital or facility, it usually creates an ID against your name to keep your health records. But only that hospital or center can access that ID or health records. Each time you go to a new hospital or wellness centre or programme, a different ID is created. As a patient, you need to maintain a tab of the various IDs, documents and carry them everywhere along with you. On the other hand, every hospital or wellness centre has to create and maintain your health records separately.

To streamline the process and make it easier for both patients and hospitals, the central government has created - Ayushman Bharat Health Account (ABHA) - one account that can be used in all government hospitals and programmes. Every ABHA card contains a unique 14-digit identification number called ABHA ID. You can create an ABHA number absolutely free of cost.

How ABHA ID Will Make Your Life Easy 

In Abha ID, there is less paperwork and easy access to medical records through online mode. You can think of Abha ID as a repository where you can store your medical records and access them online. From prescriptions and diagonistic reports to discharge summaries - you can store all the details in the ABHA account using your unique ID.

"ABHA number for a patient/beneficiary is a hassle-free method of accessing and sharing his/her health records digitally," the department said in a circular issued in January 2023. As the process is entirely digital, the central government employees don't have to necessarily maintain physical documents of your medical treatments. It is recommended that every citizen should have only one health ID for optimal use of the healthcare ecosystem.

Safety of Medical Records in Abha

Do keep in mind that as a patient, you have full control over your health records. You can choose what medical record you want to link with your health ID and share it with your healthcare provider. "The health records are being shared through a Health information exchange consent management system that ensures data is not shared among healthcare information providers and users without the approval of the person to whom data is related," the department said in its January 2023 circular.

"Only the data collected for registries such as health ID registry, healthcare professional registry and healthcare facility registry is stored centrally," as per the FAQs released by the National Health Authority on its website.
