Advances for Medical Treatment [Memo. 1982] No. 39027/724/BG/82, F.& P. (Fin. Wing-B.G.), Dt. 21-9- Ref. :-G.O.Ms.No. 1274, M. & H., Dt, 29-12-1978. Order :-Under the revised accounting classification which has come into force with effect from 1-4-1974, the expenditure on Medical advances was being classified under "766. Loans to Government Servants-MH. 25 Other Advances, SH (03) Advances for Medical attendance and treatment. But in consultation with the Accountant-General, Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad certain amendments were issued to the A.P. Integrated Medical Attendance Rules, 1972, through the reference cited. Among other things it was also ordered therein that the Medical advances shall be treated like advances of Travelling Allowance and pay on transfer and the recovery must be affected by adjustment from the claim for reimbursement of medical expenses. Even though orders have been issued to the above effect, it has been brought to the notice of the Government that the Medical advances are still being accounted for under "Loans and Advances". 2. The Director of Treasuries and Accounts is therefore requested to issue suitable instructions to all District Treasury Officers to adopt the revised classification debiting the expenditure on Medical advances to the Service head of account instead of Loans and Advances head of account. 4.

With reference to the provisions referred to in Para 1 above, employees, of various departments of Secretariat are claiming reimbursement of expenditure incurred by them on medicines for treatment of self and family members on the basis of essentiality certificate and certificate of non-availability of the drugs given by the Authorised Medical Attendant of the concerned Hospital and sometimes certificate of non-availability of these drugs in the Secretariat dispensary, issued by the Medical Officer of Secretariat Dispensary. The Departments of Secretariat are referring such claims for reimbursement of expenditure to the Medical and Health Department for concurrence. Reference of such cases to this department has been on the increase resulting in avoidable work load in this department and delay in reimbursing the claims. The Secretariat departments are therefore informed that the proposals for sanction of reimbursement of expenditure incurred by Government Servants which are in accordance with the provisions of rules referred to in Para 1 above, Viz., the calims for reimbursement of expenditure for treatment in Government Hospitals within the State which are accompanied by an Essentiality Certificate and certificate of non-availability of medicines from the Authorised Medical Attendant and when they are satisfied that the claim is in accordance with the provisions in Appendix-III to Andhra Pradesh Integrated Medical Attendance Rules, 1972, need not be referred to Medical and Health Department for remarks/acceptance. This applies to the cases referred by Heads of Departments to the Administrative Departments of Secretariat also. 3. However as provided in the note under Para 2 (ii) of the Appendix - III to the Integrated Medical Attendance Rules, 1972, all cases requiring Special sanction or relaxation ; clarification or interpretation of the State Medical Attendance Rules should be referred to this department invariably. 5.

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 Department) (d) cases of head and spinal injury (Neuro-Surgery Cases of Coma (Neurology Department) 5. With regard to the above earmarked categories, the procedure shall be followed :- following (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 drawing of advances are being issued separately. for (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.

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.
