If a retired central govt. employee has already undergone bypass surgery supported through CGHS, would the scheme also support a second bypass surgery after say, ten years' time (if needed) or is the cost of second surgery to be borne by the patient?

I think I heard somewhere that CGHS will support only one bypass surgery. I'm not sure though.

I am not aware of any such restriction under CGHS.
