Now, the controlling officer concerned has been authorised to sanction medical bills up to Rs1,500, as per the Chhattisgarh Civil Services (Medical Treatment) rule 2013 issued here on Monday by the State Government for the medical treatment of the Government officers and employees.

This sanction would be given to a government servant four times in a year at three months’ interval.

According to the new rule, medical bills of Rs1,500 to 5,000 would be sanctioned by civil surgeon of the district, district ayurved officer, superintendents of medical colleges or the officer authorised by him. Similarly, medical bills amounting Rs5,000 to Rs25,000 would be sanctioned by divisional joint director health services, chief medical and health officer, subject specialist concerned, district ayurved officer and Ayush subject specialists.

Medical bills amounting more than Rs25,000 will be sanctioned on the recommendation of the three-member specialists committee formed by the directorate of health by director health services or director Ayush or director medical education.

Under the new rule, the State Government would reimburse the expenses on oxygen given to the patient, blood transfusion, purchase of blood, expenses on child birth, intensive care unit, room rent in hospitals, surgery, pathological and X-ray.
