As you have rightly pointed out, reimbursement would be as per CGHS rates for tests and doctor's charges. Cost of medicines purchased will be reimbursed (except in the nature of food items, tonic etc-please consult relevant rules and listings). The bed charges will be limited to the entitlement, i.,e., general ward charges in this case. In special circumstances, if the patient so required to be kept separately (semi-private/private ward), a certificate to this effect is required from the treating specialists.
