The pensioners / family pensioners have to get their names registered with any of the CGHS dispensaries after submitting an application in the prescribed proforma for the issue of a CGHS identity card.

Pensioners who are residing in areas not covered under the CGHS are entitled for getting a monthly medical allowance of Rs.100/- which will be authorized by the Pension Sanctioning Authority on the basis of an undertaking from the retiree and a certificate from the CGHS authorities that the area concerned is not covered under CGHS.
