New Delhi, June 16 (IANS) The New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) has introduced a cashless COVID-19 related medical facility in all empanelled hospitals for its contractual and RMR employees and their dependent family members, for three months.
All NDMC empanelled hospitals, labs, diagnostic centres will provide cashless Inpatient Department (IPD) and Out Patient Department (OPD) treatment for only COVID-19 to all contractual or RMR employees, said a NDMC statement.
After a certain number of years of service, the employees engaged on muster roll or casual labour are converted into RMR. Services of RMR employees are regularized as per the policy or guidelines adopted by the NDMC from time to time.
These facilities will be given on production of valid identity proof or certificate issued by the NDMC on existing terms and conditions of agreement signed between the NDMC and these medical establishments, the statement added.
The expenses will be reimbursed to the empanelled hospitals, labs, diagnostic centres on submission of bills as per prescribed notified provisions of Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) and All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) on COVID-19 treatment.
The NDMC has already provided the medical facility to its contractual and RMR employees and their dependents family members based on the reimbursement of the expenditure incurred on the COVID-19 treatment only in any NDMC empanelled hospital. However, many representations have been received to introduce this facility on a cashless basis, as to the regular employees.
The issue was considered by the NDMC higher authorities and a decision was taken in favour of the contractual and RMR employees welfare.
