Yes. Most of the hospitals are refusing cashless benefits. The Government wants that the names of such hospitals should be provided to the Finance Department so that action may be taken against them for breach of contract and under other clinical laws
I know about IRIS Hospital,Jadavpur,Vision Care Hospital at Mukundopur , BB Eye Foundation at Minto park,Narayana Multispeciality Hospital at Barasat,Dr. Db Sarkar Eye Hospital At Cooch Behar…does anyone know about further enhancement of this list?
Three more names I can include in addition to AMRI and Belevue –
Dr. Nihar Munshi Eye Foundation, 1/3, Dover Place, Near Garriahaat, Kolkata
Charnok Hospital, Teghoria.
Institute of Neuro-sciences, Mullick Bazar, Kolkata.
Compared to the Central Govt. employees , we the State Govt. employees belong to second category citizens . As per circular of the Finance Deptt., Govt of West Bengal in 1914, we are supposed to get cashless benefits in the empanelled hospitals (HCO) , BUT UNFORTUNATELY MOST OF THE HOSPITALS OF KOLKATA DO NOT PROVIDE CASHLESS BENEFITS AS THE WEST BENGAL GOVT. DOES NOT PAY THE HOSPITALS IN TIME.
