Reimbursement of medical expenses for providing Emergency Treatment/First aid to the Employer is provided under Regulation-69.
Under Regulation 69, every employer has to arrange for First-aid Medical care and transport of accident cases till the injured IP is seen by the IMO/IMP and such employer is entitled to reimbursement of expenses incurred in this regard upto the maximum of scale prescribed from time to time.
However, reimbursement is not permissible, if the employer is required to provide such medical aid free of charge under any other enactment.
The cost of provision of such emergency treatment would be reimbursed to the employer by the
Director/AMO (ESI Scheme) of the State and, therefore, all claims duly supported by relevant receipts and vouchers should be sent to him for verification and payment.
