Only those Pensioners/Family Pensioners who are residing in an area not covered by CGHS, and specifically opt for not availing of OPD facilities in the nearest CGHS dispensary, are entitled medical allowance. An option is required to be exercised by a retiree at the time of retirement for availing OPD medical facility or FMA.

Only one change in option in the life-time of a Pensioner/ Family pensioner is allowed.

If a Pensioner/Family Pensioner, who is availing CGHS/medical facility for both IPD and OPD, intends to avail FMA while residing in a non-CGHS area or on shifting of residence from a CGHS area to a non-CGHS area. he/she may apply to the CGHS authorities for surrender of OPD facility under CGHS. On receipt of an application to this effect, the CGHS authorities will make necessary endorsement on the CGHS card and issue a certificate within four working days from the date of receipt of application, that the Pensioner/Family Pensioner is not availing OPD facility and is availing only IPD facility under CGHS. Thereafter, the Pensioner/Family Pensioner will submit an application to the Head of Office along with copy of the surrender certificate for issue of a revised pension payment authority for payment of FMA. The case for issue of the revised pension payment authority will then be processed in the usual manner through PAO and CPAO and sent to the Pension Disbursing Bank for payment of FMA along with monthly pension. The revised Pension Payment Authority will be issued within two months from the date of submission of application by the Pensioner/Family pensioner in this regard. The payment of FMA in such cases will, however, be made from the date of issue of the surrender certificate by the CGHS authorities.
