The Central Government proposes to revise the rates for the medical treatment, tests etc.under the Central Government Health Scheme(CGHS). The CG  employees and their organisations have been complaining that many empanelled hospitals  themselves have not been accepting the CGHS rates and employees were compelled to pay extra charges.
According to the new proposals tender will be  called for the rates from medical institutions and instead of the lowest rates, the average will be taken in to consideration. It is also proposed to pay 70 per cent of the charges within 7 days  and the rest will be paid after verification.
Of course, the central  government wants to show that is employee friendly in the general election year.
