Guidelines for referrals to CGHS empanelled hospitals

Nirman Bhawan, Maulana Azad Road
New Delhi 110 108, date  the11th June, 2010

To

Additional Directors / Joint Directors of all CGHS cities

Subject:   Guidelines for referrals to CGHS empanelled  hospitals in CGHS cities outside Delhi, where there are no Central  Government hospitals.

    I am directed to state that it has come to notice that CGHS beneficiaries residing in cities covered by CGHS (outside of Delhi) are facing difficulties in getting services of specialists from State Government hospitals and they cannot avail services directly from private empanelled hospitals. After careful consideration of the ground realities, it has been decided to issue the following guidelines for strict compliance:

(1)            CGHS beneficiaries must compulsorily be referred to polyclinics wherever set up by the CGHS;

(2)            It posts of specialists are lying vacant in polyclinics, GDMOs, who are post graduates may be posted in polyclinics for consultation, and on the basis of the advice / opinion to be tendered by them, CMO i/c, AD / JDs may refer patients to private empanelled hospitals and diagnostic centres, according to the choice of the beneficiary;

(3)            In those cities which do not have polyclinics and if GDMOs who are post graduates are available, their services as specialist may be utilised and patients may be referred to the dispensary in which such PG
GDMOs are posted or if space is available in a centrally located dispensary, the PG GDMOs may be posted there;

(4)            In the event of neither a specialist nor a PG GDMO is available in a city, CMO i/c shall make a provisional diagnosis and refer the patients to private empanelled hospital for specialists’ consultation;

(5)            A referral from CGHS dispensary is required every the patient is advised any procedure for investigation;

(6)            If any specific treatment / procedure is advised (except in emergency) by private empanelled hospital, it must be counter-signed by CMO i/c before the services are availed, to check possible misuse;

(7)            No permission is required in case of emergency, where a
beneficiary can avail treatment in a private empanelled hospital, as per
existing instructions;

(8)            The beneficiary will have to go back to the dispensary where his / her card registered for collection of medicines prescribed by the specialist of the private empanelled hospital. No indent of such medicines will be made, for which similar drugs with same generic formulation available in the dispensary will be supplied, as per standing instructions;

(9)            Beneficiaries can purchase prescribed medicines for 3 (three) days only from open market, which shall be reimbursed by the CGHS / Ministry / Department, as the case may be . For requirement of medicines beyond three days, medicines will have to be procured from the dispensaries; and

(10)            Once a diagnosis and treatment has been advised by the specialist, doctors in dispensaries may follow up the case instead of referring back after the specific period of the prescription gets exhausted. They have to use their own clinical judgement for follow-up and adjust the dose schedules, if required.

2.This issues with the approval of Director General of Health Services.

Yours faithfully

(R. Ravi)
Deputy Secretary to the Government of India

Medicines Prescription by Doctors of Central Governemnt Hospitals

June 27, 2010 Leave a comment
No. 5-11025/45/10-MH-I
Government of India
Ministry of Health & Family Welfare
Directorate General of Health Services
(Medical Hospital-I Section)

Nirman Bhawan, New Delhi
Dated the 26th May, 2010

ORDER

It has been observed that Doctors in the Central Government hospitals and autonomous institutions under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare prescribe specific brands of medicines quite often with a rider that no substitute should, be supplied. Instances have also come to notice where the prescribed drug was very expensive and cheaper substitutes were available. However, the patient did not have any choice but to procure the prescribed drug.

The matter has been considered by the Competent Authority. It is observed that generic drugs are usually much cheaper than branded drugs. Therefore, Central Government hospitals must provide only good quality generic medicines. It has, therefore, been decided that whenever any branded drug is prescribed in the above mentioned institutions, it shall invariably also be mentioned that any other equivalent generic drug could also be provided. For instance, if the prescription is for Tablet Crocin, then the prescription should read as ‘Tab Crocin’ or any other equivalent generic drug. The hospital would then give the flexibility of providing generic equivalents of the prescribed medicine.

It has also been decided that henceforth the prescription will be regularly monitored in Dte.G.H.S. to verify compliance with these instructions.

CGHS – INTERIM ARRANGEMENT FOR MUMBAI AND THIRUVANANTHAPURAM

June 27, 2010 Leave a comment
   It has been brought to the  notice of the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare that hospitals  and diagnostic centres empanelled under CGHS, Mumbai and  Thiruvananthapuram have been showing lack of interest in  continuing with CGHS due to their perceived grievance of high  amount of performance bank guarantee and the rates that were  being offered. This has resulted in the ailing CGHS  beneficiaries not being able to get treatment in private  hospitals and diagnostic centres. 
  
   The matter has been examined in  the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare and, as an interim  arrangement, it has been decided that CGHS beneficiaries in  Mumbai and Thiruvananthapuram may be allowed to get their  treatment / tests, etc., in any private hospital / diagnostic
centre in their respective cities and claim reimbursement from  their respective Departments / Ministries / CGHS, as the case may be, subject to the condition that the reimbursement would be  limited to the CGHS rates that have been fixed for the city.
 
   There will be no change in the procedure for claiming of  reimbursement of expenses. The hospitals, not being in the  list empanelled hospitals under the CGHS, may not provide  treatment under CGHS package rates for the city and may charge  their own prevailing rates. The hospitals will also not be  extending credit facilities to pensioner CGHS beneficiaries.  Hence the beneficiaries may have to spend for their treatment  from their own resources and claim reimbursement from their  respective Ministries / Departments / CGHS. Before they proceed  to get treatment in a hospital, the beneficiaries are requested  to get the permission from the concerned authorities.
