On the basis of the responses received package rates for various procedures / treatments have been arrived at and have been uploaded in the website of CGHS:www.mohfw.nic.in\cghsnew\index.asp and can be downl oaded.

2. “Package Rate” shall mean and include lump sum cost of inpatient treatment / day care / diagnostic procedure for which a CGHS beneficiary has been permitted by the competent authority or for treatment under emergency from the time of admission to the time of discharge including (but not limited to) –
