Digital health cards can be easily accessed with the help of your Aadhar card or mobile number. You need to sign into your Ayushman Health Account (ABHA account) to access the information. You also have the option to erase the medical records at any time. Create your Health ID using the following steps: 

  • Go to the official website of NDHM 
  • Click on “Create your ABHA now” 
  • Select “Generate via Aadhaar” 
  • Put in the details of your Aadhar card number in the required section 
  • You will receive an OTP on your linked mobile number
  • Enter that OTP in the available space
  • After entering the OTP, you will need to put your basic details
  • After filling out the information you will receive your digital health ID card 

Note that you can also do Ayushman bharat registration using your driving license or just the mobile number.
