GUIDELINES FOR CONTINUOUS EMPANELMENT SCHEME FOR EMPANELMENT OF PRIVATE HOSPITALS, DIAGNOSTIC LABORATORIES, EXCLUSIVE EYE CENTRES AND DENTAL CLINICS WITH CGHS.

Background

With a view to ensuring comprehensive health care to CGHS beneficiaries, CGHS has been, apart from the Government Hospitals, empanelling private hospitals, diagnostic laboratories, exclusive eye centres and dental clinics by floating tenders periodically. The last tender process in this context commenced in the January 2014 and through this process package rates for different treatment procedures and investigations have been notified in 2014. As a part of this process, certain hospitals and diagnostic laboratories exclusive eye centres and dental clinics which participated in e-tender process and accepted these rates and also signed MOAs with CGHS have been notified in all CGHS cities except Mumbai.

However, it has been noticed that the number of hospitals, diagnostic laboratories,exclusive eye centres and dental clinics notified in certain cities through the current tender process is not adequate to provide a satisfactory level of Healthcare to CGHS beneficiaries. Also, there has been little or no response in certain other cities, with the result a situation has arisen where CGHS is not in a position to provide to its beneficiaries the requisite healthcare due to lack of adequate number of hospitals, diagnostic laboratories and exclusive eye centres and dental clinics .

Accordingly, it has become necessary to introduce continuous empanelment scheme, under which more hospitals, diagnostic laboratories and imaging centres could be empanelled to take care of inadequacy. In this background, it is proposed to invite willing hospitals, diagnostic laboratories exclusive eye centres and dental clinics to apply for empanelment under CGHS if they fulfill the same eligibility conditions and accept the rates notified by CGHS in 2014.

Empanelment shall be for a period of 2 years or as applicable to other HCOs empanelled earlier through e-tender in 2014 whichever is earlier.

The continuous empanelment scheme would be in force initially upto 28th February, 2015 for all CGHS cities except Mumbai.
