March 20, 2023

Mysore/Mysuru: “A Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) Unit for Central Government employees and pensioners  was inaugurated at JSS Hospital in city and those who are eligible must make a good use of this service,” said retired IAS Officer S.P. Shadaksharaswamy after inaugurating the unit recently.

“Employees, pensioners and their dependents can make use of the facility which provides medical services. Till now, only Bengaluru hospitals were identified to provide this service. Now, Mysuru’s JSS Hospital hosts a Clinic and Referral Centre. Except Bengaluru, CGHS is not implemented in any other hospitals of the State and it was inevitable for patients to go to Bengaluru to avail CGHS. A unit has now been opened in Mysuru and all should make use of this,” advised Shadaksharaswamy.

Regional Provident Fund Commissioner Vinit Kumar, who spoke on the occasion, said that Mysuru’s JSS Hospital  is a model hospital and employees, pensioners of Central Government and their dependents should make use of this Health Scheme.

JSS Hospital Medical Superintendent Dr. C.P. Madhu, who also spoke on the occasion, said that JSS Hospital is the only Hospital in the city to give medical services under CGHS.

Patients should first contact CGHS Welfare Centre and bring Reference Slip. Cashless Medical services will be provided later for those pensioners who are mentioned in the Referral Letter. About 20,000 pensioners and 12,000 working employees come under the ambit of CGHS.

Central Government Retired Employees Association Secretary P.M. Parameshwaraiah, JSS Medical College Principal Dr. H. Basavana Gowdappa, R. Mahesh and others were present.
