Availing of Benefits of CGHS Wellness Centres

CGHS beneficiaries including senior citizens can avail of specialist consultation from any government institution of the Central Government, State Government or local bodies. However, to avail of a procedure/investigation from a private empanelled hospital, a referral from the concerned CGHS Wellness Centre is necessary.

Following efforts have been made to provide better services to the senior citizens/pensioners:

1. There is a separate queue for senior citizens/ pensioners at registration counter and pharmacy counter in the CGHS Wellness Centres.

2. Senior citizens / pensioners can consult CMO i/c without standing in queue.

3. In case of emergency, CGHS beneficiaries including Senior citizens / pensioners can visit any hospital, empanelled or non-empanelled and avail medical treatment without any referral.

The Health Minister, Shri J P Nadda stated this in a written reply in the Lok Sabha here today.
