UMT provides various benefits to its employees after regularization; one of these benefits is Medical Coverage for employee and his/her dependants.
Medical coverage is of two types:
1. Indoor Health Facility
Indoor Health Facility is utilized when confinement in the hospital is necessary for treatment. Currently, we have coverage through IGI General Insurance Company. All full-time permanent employees upto 65 years of age are eligible for medical insurance coverage under the Group Health Insurance Scheme. Only the employee, his/her spouse and children are covered under this scheme. Son(s) of employees is/are covered till the age of 25 while daughters are covered till they get married. Parents are not covered under this scheme.
How it works:
University bears the expense of premium of the insurance provided by IGI General Insurance Company. All medical facilities under this scheme have to be pre-approved except in case of emergency. For pre-authorization, kindly drop an email on [email protected]
In case of emergency, kindly contact on IGI General Insurance Company’ approval center hotline no. (042-3450-3333), immediately after hospitalization and in case of planned treatment please drop an email to [email protected] regarding approval, mentioning date, day, hospital name and procedure to be done along with indoor card and prescription. You will get approval letter within 24 hours (during weekend time may extend). If you still don't get approval, please call on below mentioned IGI hotline number regarding your query, they will facilitate you on time. Medical expenses incurred 30 days prior and 30 days post hospitalization are covered whether treatment is from the panel hospital or otherwise.
i. Treatment in Panel Hospital:
In case the employee visits any hospital on the panel of IGI General Insurance Company, he/she will not have to bear any expense as long as the cost of treatment remains within the limit of coverage provided by the insurance company. Any amount over and above the limit will have to be borne by the employee.
If a covered person avails treatment from a panel hospital but from a visiting consultant, initially the charges shall be borne by the employee that can be claimed afterward from the Insurance Company through OHR.
If a covered person prefers treatment by a consultant of his/her own choice rather than the panel consultant, then the expenses shall be covered as per the agreed rates of the Insurance Company with the same hospital.
