Dated, 16th July, 2014


It has been brought to the notice of the undersigned that some of the CGHS empanelled Health Care Organizations have started charging new CGHS rates 2014 which have been placed on CGHS website for information and acceptance only. Since these rates have not yet been notified by Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, the empanelled HCOs cannot charge these new rates and CGHS 2010 rates would prevail. Charging these new rates 2014 from CGHS beneficiaries by empanelled health care organizations would amount to overcharging and suitable action including recovery of overcharged amount and forfeiture of performance bank guarantee would be initiated against those HCOs by CGHS.
