Posted in health insurance by kishosingh on April 15, 2009

Now, you can renew your health insurance policies very easily and rightfully. From June, 2009 even non-life insurance companies also will renew your health insurance. A new terms & condition announces that such rejection will be rare and exceptional now.

According to the news no insurance companies can reject renewing your health insurance policies now which you have claimed previous years or during premium renewing cover arbitrarily.

IRDA (Insurance Regulatory & Development Authority) announced in news with Hindustan Times, “ordinarily renewable except on grounds such as fraud, moral hazard or misrepresentation of facts. Specifically, renewal shall not be denied on the ground that the insured had made a claim in the previous years.”

If insurer proposed to increase your premium while renewing your insurance policy then they would have to inform you before three months for it. Along with it they would have to explain all the details with reasons.

J Hari Narayan who is the chairman of IRDA told with HT in a press, “There were several complaints from policy-holders who had claimed earlier that their insurers have refused renewing their policies next year without giving reasons for rejection.”

From now the prospects of health insurance will be upfront with all the details including all coverage. Maximum age to renew will be decided. All the details of pre-existing diseases will be in details.

It is the much comfortable news for those who have health insurance policies and those who have to renew this. We can’t say how effective it because health insurance policies are very complicated subject. In spite of the news announce that now health insurance policies will be easy and all the details will be in prospectus.

Still there is no review about the news however; we assume that soon there will be practical aspect of the news. If health insurance policies will be truth like the news then surely everyone will feel comfortable.

My experience with corporate health insurance

Posted in health insurance by kishosingh on January 19, 2009

I will recommend everyone, don’t go with corporate insurance. I had a great experience about corporate health insurance especially. Recently, in my company ICICI came to give us health insurance for all the employees. They had not come; they had been called by our company without our information.

Suddenly a meeting has been called of our team to let us know about that health insurance. We were against that insurance however we had to listen that lecture which was on health insurance by an agent who was from ICICI Lombard.

The lecture was for the corporate health insurance. According to health insurance an employee will get insurance if he get accident or in the condition of bad health. It was only for 1 year it means it was on early basis. For a year we had to pay 1328. It was already deduced by account department from our salaries without any information.

It was very illegal and absurd way of our company towards employees. Most of the employees were against of the insurance however they are not on the front. All were informed by HR that it is the rule for all. The rule was new and by the management.

Calling department did not participate in that lecture of health insurance and told directly that return our money else we will leave our job. We also forced to our manger to return our health insurance money we are not interested but he was very coward. So, we had to fight alone with HR department to get our money.

That was not actually health insurance that was the way to get money by employees for company. They were needed for commission on the basis of our money.

It was my greatest experience about corporate health insurance during the job. By the insurance we were not eligible in condition of leaving the company. We were not able also in the condition of major serious accident.

I saw how a corporate companies with the collaboration of corporate insurance, exploit their employees.
