New Rates for Undergoing Angioplasty

The Government has revised the CGHS package rates for coronary angioplasty and angioplasty with balloon w.e.f. 7/2/2013 as per the following details:

Coronary Angioplasty and Angioplasty with Balloon

Coronary Angioplasty                          -      Rs. 50,000/-
Coronary Angioplasty

All the empanelled private hospitals have not discontinued to provide angioplasty treatment to CGHS beneficiaries. However, ‘3’ hospitals in Delhi & NCR have  filed Writ Petitions in Hon’ble High Court of Delhi against the revised rates.

Meanwhile, the continuous empanelment scheme has been revived on 14th February, 2013 to empanel more number of eligible private hospitals under CGHS to provide inpatient healthcare facilities to CGHS beneficiaries.
