MyCGHS App Features

Going into detail, the new MyCGHS app contains several unique features that make it user-friendly for beneficiaries. For one thing, it’s been made 3U compliant, meaning it’s usable, user-centric, and universally accessible. Moreover, the app and the website are accessible in two languages, Hindi and English, making it a bilingual platform.

That’s not all. The new MyCGHS app is also designed for the visually impaired. It includes features such as an audio reading of the text and also the ability to increase the font size. Beneficiaries looking for multiple government facilities such as medical claims tracking, CGHS card status, grievances, medication history, online appointment system, etc. can be easily accessed here.

MyCGHS App and Website

Most importantly, the MyCGHS app and website has a direct link to the eSanjeevani teleconsultation facility. The platform also provides beneficiaries with a direct link to the online claims portal. This allows them to direct their complaint to the agent concerned by SMS and e-mail.

The new MyCGHS app and revamped CGHS website are a welcome gesture for grantees. Easier access to services from the comfort of their homes was the need of the hour that the government responded to.
