Government Employees responsible for Deletion of the name of an ineligible Dependent

The undersigned is directed to state that in accordance with the definition of ‘family’ mentioned in Ministry of Health Memo. No. F.6(1) 1-54-H, dated the Ist May, 1954 the family of a beneficiary for the purpose of CGHS scheme includes husband/wife of the CGHS card-holder, as the case may be, wholly dependent children or step-children and parents, who are mainly dependent on and residing with the Government Servant. While it is incumbent upon the card issuing. Authorities, i.e. various departments and offices participating in the scheme, to ensure that the names of only genuine and eligible persons are included in the CGHS token cards, it is the responsibility of the employees concerned to apply for a deletion of the name of the dependent from the CGHS card, when the ward is no more entitled to the benefit eligible under the scheme. The failure on the part of a cardholder to get the name of a child deleted from the CGHS token-card when he is no more dependent on him is a good and sufficient reason for initiating disciplinary proceedings against him in terms of the CCS (CCA) Rules, 1965.

All Ministers/Departments of the Government of India are requested kindly to ensure that the above said provisions are complied with fully. These instructions may also be brought to the notice of all employees concerned.

Opting out of the C.G.H. Scheme

Spouse employed outside Central Government and availing Medical Facilities provided by his/her Employer

Central Government Servants covered under Central Govt. Health Scheme and whose spouse is employed in Defence or Railway Services, State Government or Corporations or Bodies financed partly or wholly by the Central or State Government, Local Bodies and private organizations which provide medical facilities to the employees and their family members, can opt out of the CGH Scheme and avail medical facilities so provided by the above mentioned organizations.

It is to be ensured that neither of the two nor their family members avail medical facilities from both the sources at the same time and for this purpose, the concerned Central Government employee shall give an undertaking to the authority issuing the CGHS Card.

Re-admission under CGHS after ‘opting out’

Such Government Servants, who have opted out of CGHS, may apply for readmission and avail the benefit of CGHS in case their spouse dies or resigns or is dismissed from the office/organization, which provided medical facilities.

Availability of ‘Opting Out’ Facility

The facility of opting out of CGHS can only be availed twice during the whole service career of the employee. Administrative Ministry/Department shall record the same by making an entry in the employee’s Service Book.

It should be ensured by Regional Centre’s that the rate list of the hospital is taken whenever MoA is being renewed. The rate list attached with MoA should not have a rate more than CGHS rate/Hospital rate. wherever the hospital rate is below CGHS rate it should be reflected with an asterisk (*) on the rate list attached with MoA.

CGHS doctors to be trained on administrative matters

CGHS doctors to be trained on administrative matters

New Delhi: The government today launched the first ever induction training programme for medical officers recruited under the Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) to make them aware about service rules and regulations and to train them on administrative and managerial aspects.

The objective is also to educate them about proper utilisation of resources and inform them about various ethical and legal issues.

Health Minister J P Nadda urged the doctors to attend the nine-week programme with an open mind, stating the training would help them in carrying out their duties more efficiently in the long run.

“It is not only about treating patients. You will also have to look after some administrative issues and deal with files. That is when you will face problem and this training will come handy,” Nadda said.

The course, Nadda said, also aims at ensuring soft skills among these doctors so that they deal and communicate with the relatives of the patients in a calm and composed manner.

Around 231 doctors will undergo the training programme, which has been designed by the National Institute of Health and Family Welfare.

(a) whether, a married woman employee can show her own parents as her dependents under the service rules applicable to Central Government employees;

(b) if so, under what conditions;

(c) if not, the rationale therefor;

(d) whether Government has taken any action to make the aforesaid service rules gender neutral both in letter and spirit; and

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

ANSWER

Minister of State in the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions and Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office. (DR. JITENDRA SINGH)

(a) to (e): The service rules of the Government employees have been framed keeping in view their contextual purpose and with a view to make them gender neutral.

As per Rule 50 of Central Civil Services (CCS)(Pension) Rules, 1972, father and mother of a Government employee (which includes a female Government employee) come within the definition of family. For the purpose of gratuity, there is no condition of dependency or inclusion in family.

In respect of General Provident Fund (GPF) Rule, female employees can nominate their parents for the benefits of GPF. There is no dependency criterion for nominating parents for the benefits of GPF.

Under Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) Rules, married women employees have the option either to opt their dependent parents or dependent parents-in-law for CGHS facilities.

As per All India Services (AIS) {Medical Attendance (MA) Rules}, ‘family’ definition includes the name of parents wholly dependent upon the member of service and normally residing with such member.

As per CCS {Leave Travel Concession (LTC)} Rules, ‘family’ definition includes parents or step parents wholly dependent on the Government servant irrespective of whether they are residing with the Government servant or not.

As per CCS(Conduct Rules), “Members of family” in relation to a Government servant include the wife or husband, son or daughter, parents, brothers or sisters or any person related to any of them by blood or marriage, whether they are dependent on the Government servant or not.

As per AIS (Conduct) Rules, any person related, whether by blood or marriage, to such member or to his or her wife or husband, as the case may be, and wholly dependent on such member is treated as member of family.

Stents under CGHS

Stents under CGHS

CGHS does not procure and provide any stents to its beneficiaries directly and reimburses the cost of procedures at rates prescribed by CGHS to empanelled hospitals. The stents and other products, if any, are supplied by hospital concerned to the patient. Further, no complaint about inferior quality stents having been provided has been received from any CGHS beneficiary.

National Pharmaceutical Pricing Authority (NPPA) has informed the views expressed by some stakeholders during consultations with NPPA that stents supplied to CGHS stream are very basic. The Ministry is vigilant about all the services being provided to CGHS beneficiaries including stents.

The Minister of State (Health and Family Welfare), ShFaggan Singh Kulaste stated this in a written reply in the Lok Sabha here today.
