Subject : Allowing benefit of Continuous Empanelment Scheme to NABH/NABL accredited Health Care Organisation/Diagnostic Centres.
2. The matter has been considered in view of the requests that more Health Care Organisations (HCOs) offering good quality healthcare should be empanelled under the CGHS. After careful consideration, it has now been decided that all HCOs (Hospitals/Diagnostic Centres etc.) that have finally been accredited by NABH/NABL should be allowed the benefit of the Continuous Empanelment Scheme i.e. they may be empanelled under the CGHS even if they did not apply for such empanelment in response to the tender finalised in 2014. All other conditions for empanelment will remain the same.
3. These instructions may be brought to the notice of all NABH/NABL accredited HCOs in your jurisdiction.
