MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE STANDING COMMITTEE HELD BETWEEN THE
STAFF-SIDE, NATIONAL COUNCIL (JOINT CONSULTATIVE MACHINERY) AND THE
OFFICIAL-SIDE UNDER THE CHAIRMANSHIP OF SECRETARY(P) AT 3.00 P.M. ON
03.05.2017
 
  

S.No. 21 – Reimbursement of actual medical expenditure incurred by the employees in recognized hospitals.

Ministry
of Health & Family Welfare had vide their O.M. No.
B­12014/01/2016-JCM dated 05.04.2017 informed that private hospitals
empanelled with CGHS had signed Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with
Government to charge at CGHS rates. In case of any excess charging, the
same is recovered from the hospital bills by CGHS and paid to the
beneficiaries and the hospitals are penalised as per the provisions
under the MoA. The representatives requested that specific instances may
be brought to their notice so that they can take action.
Staff-Side
stated that the problem has also been that the rates fixed by CGHS were
so low that the hospitals were refusing to admit the CGHS
beneficiaries. Another problem is about unpaid bills. They requested
that the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare should revise their
rates at regular intervals so that the CGHS beneficiaries do not have to
suffer more on account of delay.
