           The undersigned is directed to state that as per the procedure prescribed, CGHS beneficiaries are required to be referred b7y doctors in CGHS wellness centres (also known as dispensaries) for obtaining advice from a Government specialist before they are permitted to avail treatment / undertake tests, etc., in Government / private hospitals and diagnostic centres, as per their choice. Staff Side, National Council (JCM), had raised the following demand for discussion in the 46th Ordinary Meeting of National Council (JCM) held under the chairmanship of Cabinet Secretary on 15th May, 2010:

            “Of late all beneficiaries of Ranchi are being asked to take specialized consultation only in RIMS hospitals which is 12 km away from residences of pensioners from Doranda, Kadrn & Hindoo (Ranchi City). This is very inconvenient particularly for pensioner beneficiaries who have to travel this long distance and then to stand for long time in a queue. If they are referred to any of the public sector corporation hospitals (like Ispat, HEC & CCL HOSPITALS), which are nearby, they can get the consultation there in no time.”

      (i)     Reimbursement of charges for consultation undertaken in hospitals run by public sector undertakings will be as per rates fixed for CGHS, Ranchi, or actual consultation charge paid, whichever may be less; and

     (ii)      In so far as medicines to be supplied to the beneficiaries is concerned, CGHS will supply medicines of similar salt combination / potency from its’ own formulary / store, not necessarily the branded medicine that is prescribed by the specialists of the hospitals run by public sector undertakings.

3.      These instructions come into force from the date of issue of the Office Memorandum.

4.      This issues with the concurrence of IFD (Health), vide ID No.Dy.2115/10 dated the 14th May, 2010.
