This information was given by Shri Ghulam Nabi Azad, Union Minister for Health & Family Welfare in a written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha on 30.03.2012.
The serving Central Government employees staying in non CGHS area are provided healthcare facilities under Central Services Medical Attendance [CS (MA) Rules, 1944]. Pensioners are not covered under these Rules. They are, however, entitled for the Fixed Medical Allowance of Rs 300/- per month. The pensioners residing in non-CGHS areas have the option to become a CGHS member in any CGHS covered city to avail the medical facilities under the scheme.
The Government is contemplating introduction of a Health Insurance Scheme for the Central Government employees and pensioners with special focus on non-CGHS areas.
Under CS(MA) Rules, the serving Central Government employees get treatment from Authorised Medical Attendants appointed by the concerned administrative Ministry/Department / office. They get reimbursement of their medical expenses from their respective administrative offices as per rule. The information in respect of medical expenses reimbursed to Central Government employees all over the country is not maintained in this Ministry.
