  1. Decision is welcome. At the same time Govt hospitals like RCC, sctims Trivandrum are out of ECHS panel. Re-imbursement claim ofamounts up to Rs 500/- for regular routine check up is not beneficial. Secondly if the prescribed medicine or it's real substitute is not available, reimbursement claim should be provided
