The Telangana EHS or Employees Health Scheme is a game-changer in the state’s healthcare sector. This initiative is tailor-made for the employees and pensioners of the state government, providing them with cashless medical treatment for themselves and their dependent family members. With Telangana EHS in place, the existing medical reimbursement system becomes a thing of the past. Furthermore, the scheme offers post-operative care and treatment for chronic diseases that do not require hospitalization, making healthcare accessible and affordable. The added advantage of treatment in empanelled hospitals ensures that the beneficiaries receive quality healthcare.
If you’re an employee or pensioner of the Telangana state government, you can apply for the Telangana EHS scheme through the official website or offline mode as per the guidelines issued by the government. The scheme covers the employee, spouse, and dependent children below 25 years of age, and dependent parents, subject to certain conditions.
Under the Telangana EHS, the state government covers the medical expenses of the beneficiaries, including pre-existing conditions, post-operative care, and treatment for chronic diseases that do not require hospitalization, through cashless treatment. Moreover, the scheme also covers transportation charges for shifting patients to empanelled hospitals.
The Telangana EHS scheme aims to provide quality healthcare facilities to the state government employees and pensioners, ensuring their well-being and that of their families. With its easy application process and comprehensive coverage, the scheme has become a lifeline for many beneficiaries, making healthcare accessible and affordable.

Law officers, casual and daily paid workers, independent children, and AIS officers and AIS pensioners are also excluded from the scheme.
The scheme covers the employee, spouse, and dependent children below 25 years of age, subject to certain conditions. Dependent parents, either adoptive or biological but not both, are also covered under the scheme. The following shall constitute the family – one legally wedded wife in case of a male employee/service pensioner, husband in case of a female employee/service pensioner, wholly dependent legitimate children (including stepchildren and adopted children), and dependents of family pensioners.
The scheme provides coverage to dependent parents who are dependent on the employee for their livelihood.
