    Sir, I work in District Court of Darjeeling and I’m registered under WBHS’08 and I have health card. Recently I have tested my ear with the local doctor and he prescribed me to put on hearing aids and accordingly I got my ear examined with the technician deputed by reputed Bengal Speech & hearing aids. Since such facilities are not available in any nursing home t hat too is non-empanelled one in Darjeeling. So I bought hearing aids from the bengal Speech & hearing aids Co. So am I eligible for entitlement to the cost of hearing aids and the charge for testing my ears? Please reply me soon.

    I am a state government employee posted in Purulia have a grievance regarding West Bengal Health Scheme 2008. Sir, I am covered by the West Bengal Health Scheme 2008. I need to regularly do medical check-ups of my wife in different empanelled private hospitals under the scheme. I have received reimbursements for such OPD check-ups before as well.

    But, on the last occasion an objection was given on my reimbursement form by Purulia’s Treasury Officer and it was again put on stand the second time, even after I sent all the requisite documents and orders. The objection was given as : OPD Treatment should not be allowed as per order no. 10539 F[MED] dated 21/11/11 finance department by the Treasury Officer, Mr. Madhu Sudan Naskar.

    But the said order is for non-empanelled hospitals only. But I did my wife’s check-up in Desun Hospital, Kolkata which is an empanelled hospital under West Bengal Health Scheme 2008. Desun Hospital’s empanelled code is: 0411001.

    Thus, I am eligible for reimbursement as Desun Hospital is an empanelled hospital. Further Sir, the following link of the Order No 10539-F[MED] dated 21/11/11 gives a clear picture that the order is for non-empanelled hospitals only:

    9: In case of Indoor treatment at enlisted Health Care Organisations (H.C.O.) don't bother about package. Total claim will be reimbursed upon scrutiny from respective authority. If any objection arise regarding the admissibility of the disease, then, let it be clarified by the H.C.O.

  50. says

    He is not entitled to get the cost of follow up medicine for heart disease except cardiac surgery.
    Cost of one time treatment in OPD should be reimbursed. Indoor / OPD treatment must be mentioned in Form – D by the treating Specialist. In case of Indoor treatment counter signature of Medical Superintendent is essential. Necessary declaration by the Pensioner in Form – C is sufficient. In case of Indoor treatment the pensioner claimed 11300/- as Coronary Angiography (1 day's package). As per revised rate list the new rate for the item will be 11700/-. No other charges as claimed by the pensioner is admissible. Because approved package rate is inclusive of all other charges (18 nos.) as mentioned in the Scheme. He may thus be granted Rs. 11300/- only.

  51. says

    As per Rule 14.1 of Agreement of West Bengal Health Scheme 2008, "All bills and papers related to the beneficiaries treatment shall be handed over in original along with the necessary counter signatures by the authorised persons."
    As per Rule 15.1, "If any dispute or difference of any kind whatsoever (the decision whereof is not herein otherwise provided for) shall arise between the Authority of the WBHS 2008 and the Hospital / Diagnostic Centre upon or in relation to or in connection with or arising out of the Agreement, shall be referred to for arbitration by the Director of Medical Education, West Bengal, who shall give written award of his decision to the Parties. The decision of the Director of Medical Education, West Bengal shall be final and binding. The provisions of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 (26 of 1996) shall apply to the arbitration proceedings. The venue of the arbitration proceedings shall be at Kolkata."

    So just start a discussion with the Hospital authority that you are going to act as per the said rule and going to take legal action. Always keep received copy of your application as a proof.
