Secunderabad,  Osmania  General Hospital,  Hyderabad  where  such

facilities are already available for such treatment or to Nizam's

Institute  of Medical Sciences, Hyderabad which is  a  "REFERRAL"

Hospital.  On account of this the department concerned have  been

all the authorised Medical Attendants should refer the cases that

come  to them for treatment/ surgery to Osmania  Genl.  Hospital,

Hyderabad, may be provided and necessary orders will be issued in

this regard.

10. Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences - Medical treatment  of



Govt.   Employees  and  their  dependents  -   Reimbursement   of

expenditure - Simplification of procedure - Orders - Issued

 

           [G.O.Ms.No. 445, HM&FW(E2), Dt. 19-7-1991]



 

Ref. :-G.O.Ms.No. 609, HM&FW, Dt. 21-11-1988.

 

Order  :-1. The Government have, for sometime,  been  considering



simplification  of  the  procedure for  treatment  of  Government

Servants at the Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences.

 

The procedure has been outlined in the G.O. cited. Presently  the



Ni/am's  Institute  of Medical Sciences is regarded  as  referral

hospital subject to the following conditions :-

 

(a)    The  Nizam's  Institute  of Medical  Sciences  will  be  a



referral hospital other than for emergencies.

 

(b)   Referral  of  patients  to  Nizam's  Institute  of  Medical



Sciences  should be from the teaching hospital with the  approval

of the Head of the Departments/Speciality concerned.

 

(c)    The  referring  hospital  should  ensure  that  facilities



available  in  that  hospital are fully  utilised  in  the  first

instance ; and

 

(d)   The  referring hospitals should refer the  cases  with  all



details including a referral summary.

 

2.   Under the present procedure, the teaching hospitals  in  the



State  are  referring  cases  of  Government  Servants  requiring

specialised  treatment  to  the  Nizam's  Institute  of   Medical

Sciences  whenever  facilities are not available  with  them  for

treatment  of various ailments. The sanction of  expenditure  for

treatment  incurred at Nizam's Institute of Medical  Sciences  is

being regulated in terms of the provisions of the Andhra  Pradesh

Integrated  Medical Attendance Rules, 1972. These  rules  require

that the bills of Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences should be

scrutinised by the Director of Medical Education before  sanction

is accorded for payment by the concerned Heads of Departments.

 

3.  The above procedure has been found to be cumbersome and there



are  some cases of delay in the referral of even emergency  cases

to  Nizam's  Institute  of  Medical  Sciences  by  the   teaching

hospitals. The procedure of pre-scrutiny of bills by the Director

of Medical Education is also causing delays.

 

4.  After due consideration, it has been decided that  Government



Employees  or  their dependants can obtain treatment  at  Nizam's

Institute of Medical Sciences directly for the following ailments

("earmarked categories"). In respect of these cases, referral  by

a teaching hospital will not be required.

 

(a)  Acute Mycardial Infraction (Cardiology Department)



 

(b)  Acute renal failure (Nephrology Department)

 

(c)    Severe  cases  of head and  spinal  injury  (Neuro-Surgery



Department)

 

(d)  Cases of Coma (Neurology Department)



 

5.  With regard to the above earmarked categories, the  following

procedure shall be followed :-

 

(a)    The Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences need not  insist



on  advance payment by the Government Servants and  may  commence

treatment immediately taking into account the seriousness of  the

case.

 

(b)   The Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences should prepare an



estimate  of  the approximate expenditure for the  treatment  and

hand  it over to the concerned Government Employee who,  in  turn

may  apply for advance to the concerned Head of  Department.  The

estimate of expenditure shall be calculated only with respect  to

items  reimbursable under the Andhra Pradesh  Integrated  Medical

Attendance Rules. This has to be ensured by Nizam's Institute  of

Medical  Sciences. After the advance is sanctioned the amount  of

advance shall be made over by the Head of Department directly  to

Nizam's  Institute  of Medical Sciences. Normally,  the  Head  of

Department  should ensure that the amount sanctioned  as  advance

reaches Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences within a period  of

15  days.  The  amount of advances drawn  shall  be  adjusted  by

preferring   claims  by  the  respective  departments  with   the

necessary certificates and vouchers.

 

(c)    Orders  delegating  powers to  Heads  of  Departments  for



drawing of advances are being issued separately.

 

(d)   It will no longer be necessary to get the bills  scrutinsed



by  the Director of Medical Education. The Nizam's  Institute  of

Medical  Sciences  shall take necessary steps to  scrutinise  the

bills  in accordance with the Andhra Pradesh  Integrated  Medical

Attendance Rules and forward them for payment to the Head of  the

Department concerned. The bills so sent must relate only to items

of  expenditure  admissible under the Andhra  Pradesh  Integrated

Medical Attendance Rules.

 

(e)   The Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences must make its own



arrangements  with the Government Employee concerned for  payment

with  regard  to  items  of expenditure in  the  bill  which  are

inadmissible   under  the  Andhra  Pradesh   Integrated   Medical

Attendance  Rules.  Likewise, the Nizam's  Institute  of  Medical

Sciences  must  make  its own arrangements  with  the  Government

Employee concerned for payment of bills in excess of Rs. 40,000/-

which is the limit for reimbursement of medical expenses  incured

by a Government Servant.

 

6.  With regard to any matter not covered by the above procedure,



the  provisions  of the G.O. cited shall continue  to  apply.  In

respect of the other cases, viz., cases not falling under any  of

the above earmarked categories, the existing instructions  issued

in the G.O. cited will continue to be in force.

 

11.  NIMS  -  Medical  treatment of  Govt.  employees  and  their



dependents  -Reimbursement  of expenditure  -  Simplification  of

Medical  Sciences  in which the Government  employees  and  their

dependents have been permitted to approach the Nizam's  Institute

of Medical Sciences directly for the treatment without  reference

from teaching hospitals in the State. It is however noticed  that

the  cases  received  from other Departments  for  various  other

ailments,  the  Government  employees and  their  dependents  are

directly  approaching the Nizam's Institute of  Medical  Sciences

for  treatment  i.e., other than those  identified  as  mentioned

above  and others obtaining the estimates for the  treatment  and

approaching  the  government for sanction of  advance  to  obtain

treatment   or  for  reimbursement  for  the  treatment   already

obtained.  In  the Estimation Certificates/Bills  issued  by  the

Nizam's  Institute of Medical Sciences authorities, there  is  no

indication as to whether or not, the ailments for which treatment

is sought for or obtained are those identified for the  treatment

in Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences as provided in para 4 of

G.O.Ms.No.  445,  H.M. & F.W., Dt. 19-7-1991. In the  absence  of

such   information,  it  has  become  necessary  to  enter   into

correspondence  with  the Departments and  Nizam's  Institute  of

Medical Sciences tO  Obtain  the exact position  in terms of  the

aforesaid   orders  thereby resulting in delay in  settlement  of

medical  claims  of  the  employees  consequently  a  subject  of

criticism.

 

2. With a view to avoid correspondence and consequential delay in



settlement    of    medical    claims    of    the     Government

employees/pensioners,  I  am directed to request  you  kindly  to

incorporate  in the estimation certificate to be sent or  on  the

medical  bills  to  be  given by  Nizam's  Institute  of  Medical

Sciences  to  the  Government  employees  or  retired  Government

employees,  as the case may be, a certificate whether or not  the

case  is covered by the orders issued in G.O.Ms.No. 445.  H.M.  &

F.W.,   dated  19-7-91  or  whether  it  meets  the   requirement

prescribed in G.O.Ms.No. 609, H.M. & F.W. dated 21-11.1988 (i.e.,

reference  to  Nizam's  Institute  of  Medical  Sciences  from  a

Teaching Hospital).
