Guidelines for providing CGHS facility in Non CGHS areas

3504 .    SHRI P. BHATTACHARYA

 

Will the Minister of HEALTH AND FAMILY WELFARE be pleased to state:

(a) the Government guidelines for providing CGHS facility to Central

Government Employees and Pensioners where there is no CGHS facility in the
States;

(b) whether Government will open CGHS facility in every State for the benefit
of Central Government Employees and Pensioners; and

(c) if so, the details thereof and , if not, the reasons therefor?

ANSWER
(a): The Central Government pensioners residing in Non-CGHS covered areas have the option to become a CGHS beneficiary by enrolling themselves with a CGHS dispensary in the nearest CGHS City on payment of requisite subscription to avail its facilities. The serving Central Government employees residing in Non-CGHS areas are covered under the CS (MA) Rules, 1944 for availing medical attendance. Pensioners are however not covered under these Rules; they are entitled for a Fixed Medical Allowance of Rs 300 per month.
(b) & (c):    No such proposal is under consideration in this Ministry. It is not possible to expend CGHS due to logistic, human resource and financial constraints.
