Cashless treatment may be stopped for central government employees
Corporate hospitals across the country have threatened to stop cashless treatment to lakhs of central government employees from January 1.
Protesting against ‘unviable’ rates being given to them under the CGHS (Central Government Health Scheme), the Association of Healthcare Providers (India) has said that it will give three months time to the Government to revise the rates.
“After that we will stop all cashless services at our hospitals. We will however continue to provide services on paying cash (at the hospital rates). They can seek reimbursement later,’’ the association leaders said.
Addressing a press conference here on Saturday, they said that the government should come out with a scientific method to arrive at proper packages for various treatments.
