[Part of the Minutes of the 47th Meeting of National Council (JCM) held on 13th April, 2019 issued by DoPT vide OM No. 3/1/2019-JCA dated 13.06.2019]

M/o Health and Family Welfare

Item No. 18/19/NC-47 – Reimbursement of Oxygen charges.

Staff Side stated that as per the approved charges under CGHS Rules, oxygen charges in causality, ICU are mentioned as Rs. 30/-. While the hospital authorities are charging Rs.30/- per hour as oxygen charges, the accounts authorities under the Defence Ministry are restricting the charges to Rs.30/- per day, which is causing hardship to the employees and a clarification needs to be issued.

Reply of the Official Side:
The CGHS rate list has since been revised in the year 2014. As per the revised CGHS rate list, the oxygen charges are specified as Rs. 50 per hour for non-NABH, and Rs.58 per hour for NABH Hospitals. Hence, the issue stands resolved. It was recommended that a copy of orders may be shared with Staff Side.
