dt. 08-09-2009

Subject: Implementation of the West Bengal Health Scheme, 2008 Sir, I am directed to state that with a view to providing better medical facilities to the Government employees and their family members the State Government has promulgated the West Bengal Health Scheme, 2008 under the Finance Department notification no. 7287-F dt. 19-09-2008. The Scheme has come into effect from 01-06-2009. The Scheme, however, is optional. The State Government employees willing to come under the Scheme will get medical attendance and treatment, including their family members, in recognized Government and Private Hospitals. Benefits of Scheme have been extended to the State Government pensioners and their family members under the F.D. memo no. 3475-F dt. 11-05-2009. For wide circulation, booklet containing the Scheme, operational guidelines, list of hospitals, approved rates, etc. has been published and the copies of the same have been sent to the departments, directorates and district offices. The Scheme is also available in the official website of the Government of West Bengal viz. www.wbfin.nic.in and www.banglarmukh.com link the West Bengal Health Scheme, 2008. But it appears that the Scheme has not received due publicity and many of the employees of various Departments, Directorates, District Authorities and Regional Offices are absolutely ignorant about the Scheme for which the employees are not getting the benefits of the Scheme. We are getting number of cases with the request to consider for reimbursement of costs of treatment done in any hospital/ nursing home according to their choice, as a special case in relaxation of normal rules, where such officers/ employees have not opted

for coverage under the West Bengal Health Scheme, 2008, although all such benefits can be availed of under the Health Scheme. Under the stated circumstances, I would like to request you to take all measures to give the said Health Scheme due publicity among the employees of your Departments and Directorates, regional offices, if any. District Offices should also be kept informed of the Scheme. Since the Health Scheme has already been operative w.e.f. 01-06-2009 we are not in favour of sanction of reimbursement of medical expenses as a special case in relaxation of the West Bengal Services (MA) Rules, 1964 and West Bengal Services (Medical Benefits for the State Government Pensioners) Rules, 1998, as amended, w.e.f. 01-11-2009. This point may be brought home to the employees/ pensioners concerned. Meetings may also be conducted by heads of respective offices so that ignorance by officers/ employees may not be considered as an excuse for relaxation of the provisions of West Bengal Services (MA) Rules, 1964/ West Bengal Services (Medical Benefits for the State Government Pensioners) Rules, 1998 after 31 October, 2009. It is also submitted that special consideration of cases where officers/ employees have not opted for the West Bengal Health Scheme, 2008, will also create unfavourable situation for officers/ employees who have opted for the Scheme and may give rise to genuine grievance on their part. Thanking you, Yours faithfully,

Principal Secretary to the Government of West Bengal
