Central Govt. pensioners their spouses, dependent sons. below 25 years of age, daughters till the date of marriage or the date from which they start earning and dependent parents are eligible. Disabled Sons with 40% or more disability are also eligible even beyond the age of 25 years.

RATES OF CONTRIBUTION AND ENTITLEMENT FOR WARD/PRIVATE ROOM
Rate of contribution to the scheme is based on the grade pay appropriate to the scale of 
pay prescribed by 6th CPC whereas the entitlement for hospital accommodation for Indoor 
treatment is determined with reference to Basic Pay/Pension.
