State employees welcomed
Spokesperson of the convening board of the committee, Arun Pandey said that in today’s meeting, the scheme of golden card issued by the state government to provide cashless medical facilities to the state employees is separated from the Ayushman scheme and the treatment of patients admitted like OPD is also CGHS. A revised mandate has been issued to be done at the rates of Rs. With this, an assurance given to the coordination committee by the Chief Secretary, Uttarakhand Government and the Chief Minister was fulfilled. It is noteworthy that earlier, the medical treatment provided to the state employees in OPD was being paid at CGHS rates, whereas the patients admitted were being paid at AIIMS rates. Due to this, most of the private hospitals were reluctant to treat the patients of golden card under this scheme, but after this mandate, now the state employees will definitely get the benefit of cashlash treatment in various private hospitals.
Similarly, earlier only one or two medical facilities of the hospitals were registered under the scheme, while the demand was being made by the coordination committee to give cashless benefits to the employees of the entire medical system, which was included in the mandate. With this, employees will be able to get the benefit of different types of therapy in the same hospital. It has also been mentioned in the mandate that the Chief Minister has been authorized to make changes in future if any change is required.
In the meeting of the Coordination Committee, it has been demanded that for the smooth operation of the scheme, it is necessary to set up a Grievance and Monitoring Cell in the State Health Authority. On this, arrangements should be made to contact through WhatsApp, telephone, and e-mail etc. to solve the complaint and problem, so that in case of any kind of problem, it can be resolved immediately. After a detailed study of the mandate and practical compliance of its provisions by the Coordination Committee, efforts will be made to make necessary improvements in this regard.
In the meeting, on the other demands presented by the coordination committee, as per the assurance given by the Chief Secretary, Uttarakhand Government and the Chief Minister, a demand was also made to resolve the demands by taking action at the earliest.
