Mam, Your facility to you & your eligible family members/dependents starts from the day ONE provided you apply for CGHS Card ON-LINE with individual photo/s of Ur self & members of Ur family to your local CGHS Head Office and personally submit the downloaded form with photos and attestation of the designated officer from your office. Monthly Deduction for contribution towards CGHS members is effective from the day U join. CGHS card should be obtained on TOP priority, because, one cannot anticipate what would befall on any of the members for requirement of medical attention/admission in the event of emergencies and also for regular OP treatment in the registered CGHS clinic.

Mam politely approach your concerned authority through proper channel in writing for requirement of CGHS facility. You are new to the office be diplomatic and at the same time keep to your selves and learn and complete the task given to you promptly.

CGHS – A HELL FOR THE NEEDY AND SICK PATIENTS
The very aim of instituting CGHS is defeated at Delhi, particularly in Vikaspuri Branch and CGHS North Zone. Nursing and laboratory facilities are not available. Receipts are not given. The appointments in Geriatric Clinic [Medical] are given after two months. One clerk in Vikaspuri Branch attends office at will. No file moves normally. Patients are being harassed. Medical claims are being delayed for years or rejected on false grounds. One claim was paid after 2 yrs. Another claim for admission as emergency at Artemis Hospital, Gurgaon on 31 August 2009 for surgical intervention of Gall stone acute pancreatitis was rejected twice by CGHS North Zone office (Ref. 2892/10/CGHS/NZ/3/11/10, without seeking experts opinion. Doctors were rude in talking, when I submitted the file second time on 3/11/10 in CGHS (NZ). Additional Director told me Gall stone pancreatitis do not require emergency operation, while literature says it is life threatening and needs emergency treatment. He made the remark without seeing the condition of the patient! He also blamed the surgeon for operating the patient. He asked me to go to court for the claim, without going through the file. They say they refer such cases to surgical specialists, but their remarks are kept confidential. When literature says, it is life threatening condition and needs emergency treatment why should they refer the file to surgical specialists and reject it on false grounds. Ministry of Health should immediately improve the situation of these CGHS centres.

A photo copy of remarks and the daily course of treatment must be given to the patient on daily basis and the signature of patient should be obtained. This is required so as to make aware the treatment is being given to the patient. It is the right of the patient. If the patient is not in a condition to receive the photo copy, it should be given to the relative/ attendent and obtain their signature. This is the ruling of the courts and is followed Internationally except in India who are ignorant of this rule.
