  Subject : Simplification of procedure for undergoing treatment in Indus Hospital, Shimla.
Sir,  
 
I am directed to say that it has come to the notice of the Government that HP Govt. employees / pensioners who have undergone treatment in the Indus Hospital, Shimla, are facing financial hardship due to non- payment of their medical claims by the concerned DDOs saying that their claims should be countersigned by the Chief Medical Officer. The Govt. of India , Ministry of Health & Family Welfare (Deptt. of Health ), New Delhi, vide their letter No. S. 14021/18/93-MS dated 18th October , 1994 has clarified that as per CS(MA) Rules, 1944 all hospitals recognized by the State Government for medical attendance and treatment of their employees and / or members of their families are automatically regarded as included as included in the term "Government Hospital". In view of this , the following clarification is issued :-
[i]




If any Govt. employee / pensioner and/ or his dependents undergo treatment in the above Hospital , it is not necessary to refer the patient by Govt. Hospital to the above Hospital and the individual can undertake treatment without having been referred to by the medical specialist of the Govt. Hospital. However , reimbursement will be admissible as per instructions issued by this department vide OM No. HFW-B(A)7-1/91- II dated 19.8.94 earlier at the time of recognition of Indus Hospital (Copy enclosed for ready reference ).
[ii]


That there is no need to get the medical reimbursement claim countersigned by the Chief Medical Officer or other Health department medical specialist. The DDO concerned will ensure reimbursement in the light of the instructions issued vide above OM, if the claim has been duly verified by Indus Hospital authority.
[iii]





The Indus Hospital , Shimla, is authorized to refer the patients for treatment outside the State for specialized treatment which are not available in the State - only to a Govt. Hospital / Hospital recognized by the State Government - and simultaneously will request the Director Health Services, HP., Shimla- 9 , to accord necessary permission for undergoing treatment outside the State in respect of the individual . However, same procedure will be applicable for referring cases of Indus Hospital outside the State as is applicable in respect of patients recommended by Govt. hospitals.
[iv]



The Principal, Indira Gandhi Medical College, Shimla, and Head of Department of Radiology , IGMC, Shimla, will ensure that same charges are charged from the HP. Govt. employees/ Pensioners and their dependents if he/ she is referred for CT Scan to IGMC by the Indus Hospital. The charges be charged as per rates fixed in this behalf by the Govt. vide letter No. HFW-B(A)2-3/89 dated 22.11.95.
 
All the Heads of Department will ensure that these instructions are adhered to strictly by the DDO concerned.
 

Yours faithfully,
