It is expected from a Govt employee to consult the Govt Hospital as and when he fell ill. You may prefer a claim detailing the facts and circumstances to the Competent Authority and it is at his discretion to accept the claim

Emergency treatments at private hospitals is admissible when there are no govt hospitals available nearby. However, the authorities concerned have the descretion of accepting/rejecting the claim.
