Treatment from CGHS Empanelled Hospitals

Ministry of Health and Family Welfare

Treatment from CGHS Empanelled Hospitals

As per the existing guidelines, a CGHS beneficiary is required to obtain permission from his administrative Department / Office or CMO in charge (in case of pensioner beneficiary) to avail medical treatment in a CGHS empanelled private hospital. However, in case of emergency he can go to any hospital whether empanelled or not, to avail medical treatment. This provision is necessary to ensure proper medical treatment of a CGHS beneficiary in consultation with the Government specialists. This is also a measure of ‘checks and balances’ to ensure financial propriety and optimum utilization of public money.

This Ministry has been receiving representations from the individuals; Pensioners Associations etc. to allow the CGHS beneficiaries to take treatment from the CGHS empanelled private hospitals without obtaining the requisite permission. However, their requests have not been acceded to as the present referral system is considered necessary in the interest of the beneficiaries and it is also necessary as a check and balance measure to ensure financial propriety.

CGHS is already providing comprehensive and hassle free healthcare services to its beneficiaries through its large network of Wellness Centres and empanelled private hospitals and diagnostic /imaging centres. With a view to further simplify and liberalize the procedures in CGHS to make its services more hassle free, the requirement of mandatory permission for undertaking diagnostic tests and investigations has been done away with w.e.f. 1st January, 2013. In addition, ‘Continuous Empanelment Scheme’ has also been revived at all CGHS locations to empanel more number of eligible private hospitals to enhance accessibility and availability of medical services to the beneficiaries in a hassle free manner.

This information was given by the Union Minister of Health & Family Welfare ShriGhulamNabi Azadin written reply to a question in the LokSabha yesterday.

This below information was given by the Union Minister of Health & Family Welfare ShriGhulamNabi Azadin written reply to a question in the LokSabha yesterday.

This Ministry has been receiving complaints/grievances in respect of the following major aspects.
 1.Administrative:- Misbehavior by medical and paramedical staff, Shortage of staff,  Punctuality etc.

2. Technical:- Delay in settlement of medical reimbursement claims (MRCs),  Supply of substitute medicines instead of the prescribed by the Govt. specialists, Delay in supply of indented medicines, etc.

3. Related to empanelled hospitals: Denial of credit facility, Misbehavior of hospital doctors/staff, overcharging, etc.

4. Related to Internet accessibility: Disruption in services due to breakdown in internet connectivity,  etc.

To redress the grievances/complaints, the following steps have been taken:

Administrative :-Instructions have been issued to the doctors /para-medical staff working in CGHS to be polite and courteous in their behaviour with the patients. In specific cases transfers have also been made and disciplinary actions initiated. Contractual doctors are appointed to meet the requirement of Medical Officers. Regular inspections are carried out.

Technical:-The time limit for clearance of MRC bills has been fixed. CGHS doctors are advised to prescribe generic medicines to the maximum extent. The indented medicines are supplied through various local chemists to avoid the delay.

Related to empanelled hospitals: Penalty is imposed and suitable action is initiated against the erring empanelled private hospitals.

Related to Internet accessibility: -Medical Officers have been instructed not to stop to provide the consultation/treatment in case of failure of internet connection.

Apart from the above, SMS Alert system has been introduced aiming at bringing transparency in delivery of services as major initiative. Redressal Committees have also been formed by CGHS.

The allocation of financial resources is based on the evaluation of specific requirements/demands projected by the CGHS units and availability of resources.
