Dated: the 13h September, 2019
Office Memorandum
Subject: Emergency treatment in CGHS empanelled Hospitals.
The extant instructions under CGHS provide that under einergency
conditions, a CGHS beneficiary can get admission in any CGHS empanelled
Hospital without any prior permission. It has, however, been brought to the
notice that the Hospitals deny admission or insist on referral memo from CGHS
Wellness Centre even in emergency conditions.
In accordance with the Memorandum of Agreement between the CGHS
empanelled Hospital and the Government of India, refusal to provide treatment
to bonafide CGHS beneficiaries in emergency cases and other eligible
categories of beneficiaries on credit basis, without valid ground, would attract
disqualification for continuation of empanelment.
2. It is, therefore, reiterated that in emergency the empanelled hospitals will refuse the CGHS beneficiary or his family member and will provide credit facilities to the patient
3.admissiondemand nоt advance from раyment or demand an advance payment from the CGHS beneficiary or his family member and will be provide for facilities to the patient.
