With reference to the above subject the undersigned is directed to state that this Ministry is in receipt of representations from CGHS beneficiaries of the difficulties in availing treatment facilities at private hospitals / Diagnostic Centres empanelled under CGHS. The matter has been reviewed and it is now decided to reiterate that all CGHS empanelled hospitals, which are notified as COVID-Hospitals by State Governments shall provide treatment facilities to CGHS beneficiaries as per the CGHS norms, for all COVID related treatments.
Similarly, it is again reiterated that all the CGHS empanelled hospitals, which are not notified as COVID Hospitals shall not deny treatment facilities/admission to CGHS beneficiaries and shall charge as per CGHS norms, for all other treatments.
Suitable action shall be taken in case of violation of the guidelines.
