CGHS Officials/Pensioners on Tour or Out-of-Station

Medical facilities to the CGHS beneficiaries in various cities across India in the hospitals recognized under CGHS and CS (MA) Rules, 1944, while on tour, leave or in unforeseen emergency

Keeping in view the difficulties being faced by the CGHS beneficiaries-both the serving government employees and pensioner in availing medical facilities while on tour, leave or in unforeseen emergency out-of-station, it has been decided to liberalize the CGHS rules with respect to both -serving government employees and pensioners, so as to enable such individuals to avail of the medical facilities and services on production of their CGHS cards as enlisted below:

S.NoCategory of CGHS BeneficiaryAvailing of Medical ServicesMode of Reimbursement

2.PensionersDuring visit to any other CGHS covered city in the concerned dispensary/recognized hospital or in case of a non-CGHS area, A.M.A. and recognized private hospitalBy the CGHS where the individual has been registered.

This issues with the concurrence of JS (FA) vide Dy.No.4611/JS(FA)/99 dated 28.9.99.

I have read some excellent stuff here. Certainly worth bookmarking for revisiting. I wonder how so much attempt you place to make this type of fantastic informative web site. Dental Hospital in Hyderabad


Complain from the TEACHERS of Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan KOLKATA REGION.
As a capacity of THE GENERAL SECRETARY, AIKVTA, Kolkata Region, I am complaining against The Additional Director CGHS, Kolkata. Earlier 25 years CGHS facility was continued but now it was stopped from few months and teachers are debarred to avail the CGHS facility. This facility is continued in other metropolitan towns like Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai and other places where this facility is available. We are deducting CGHS contribution every month from salary but By order of The Additional Director CGHS, Kolkata, Wellness Hospitals refused to give treatment. So, I beg for issuing order for treatment of K.V. teachers in CGHS of Kolkata Wellness Center.

yes I read this paragraph fully about the resemblance of most up-to-date and earlier technologies, it's amazing article. Feel free to visit my homepage Best Dental Hospital in Hyderabad .

Hi All, I am an IT professional and the new proposed scheme looks like the best. CGHS has many draw backs like should be in city to get cards, not all states have good hospitals. Big headache with reimbursement. Modi is doing good job tweet him to support new insurance scheme instead of CGHS which might speed up the process and all employees and retired employees will get insurance cards which never expires in there life time and cashless benifits
