No specific time frame can be given for introduction of New Health Insurance Scheme for CG Employees and Pensioners...

Central Government has a proposal to introduce a new Health Insurance Scheme for the CGHS beneficiaries, is there any time frame to implement the scheme to Central Government employees and Pensioners..?

The below answer was given by the Minister of Health and Family Welfare Shri.Ghulam Nabi Azad to the question above mentioned in the Lok Sabha as follows...

"It has been a constant endeavour of the Government to improve the health care facilities for the Central Government employees and pensioners under the Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) and Central Services (Medical Attendance) Rules, 1944. In addition, Government has mooted a proposal for introduction of a Health Insurance Scheme for the Central Government employees and pensioners with special focus on Non-CGHS areas. 

Proposals were invited from the Insurance companies in March, 2010. However, it was subsequently decided to initiate the process afresh after obtaining the approval of Planning Commission and inclusion of the scheme in the 12th Five Year Plan (FYP). No specific time frame can be given for introduction of the health insurance Scheme".
