The Government is bringing a new Health Insurance Scheme

Recommendations of Sixth Pay Commission, provided for implementing an alternative health insurance scheme in the place of existing CGHS. Of course, the existing CGHS requires to be revamped for the very reason that it caters to minority of Government employees.

While Central Government employees community are posted knook and corner of the country, the existing CGHS is limited only to 26 cities. As we all know, the rest of places are covered by Central services (Medical Attendance) Rules, which seldom serve the real purpose.

In this scenario, the present contemplation of the Government in bringing a new Health Insurance Scheme in the place of existing CGHS, and medical treatment under Central services (Medical Attendance) Rules, is positive and welcome one.

We provide here the official documents released by the Government (which is available in Ministry of health and family welfare) for assessing the willingness of the CG employees to join in the proposed health insurance Scheme. This documentation is named as Demand Survey.

We request all the Gconnect readers to go through the document and apply in the given format in case they are willing to join as beneficiary in the proposed health insurance scheme.

Some of our friends pointed out the documentation is slightly vague in the sense that whether the proposed scheme is applicable for non-CGHS centers as the filled up applications were required to be furnished at the CGHS centers available in 26 cities mentioned in the said documentation.

However, we feel that as per the wordings of the demand survey document as well as earlier proposals of the government the scheme has been proposed for non-CGHS centers also and the employees belonging to non-CGHS centers can send the willingness to the Deputy Director, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare directly (address mentioned in the document survey)
