Reimbursement for heart operations for CGHS patients
Needless to say that CGHS Scheme is one of the greatest privilege for Central Government employees and Pensioners, specifically the heart operation. Ministry of Health and Family Welfare recently revised the package rates of Coronary Angioplasty and Coronary Angioplasty with Balloon. While answering in Parliament the Minister said, “Ministry has notified the ceiling rates for coronary stents vide Office Memoranda No. Misc.1002/ 2006/CGHS(R&H)/CGHS (P) dated 7th February, 2013 and 21st February, 2013. There is no proposal for further revision in the ceiling rates of stents as these have been finalised recently after due consideration. There is no change in the CGHS package rates for heart by-pass surgery (CABG) since 2010”.
