The Central Government has given a big deal of cheap treatment to the 35 lakh personnel who come under the CGHS. Of all the private hospitals associated with CGHS, about two dozen diseases will be treated at affordable prices. Hospital management will not be able to collect the rates on their own. The central government itself has fixed the rates of ‘treatment and test’
An employee from any of the laboratories accredited by the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL) and the National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare Providers (NABH), will get the facility at cheaper rates. If a lab is not accredited with NABL and NABH, then there will be 15% lower price than the existing rates.
Let me tell you that the Central Government has taken this step to provide better health facilities to its workers. Earlier, the Central Government had included many diseases in this list under CGHS Package Rates 2014.
