Group Health Insurance Scheme Proposed By AIGETOA for PAN India:

Group Health Insurance Scheme Proposed By AIGETOA for PAN India:

We are in receipt of queries regarding our proposed Group Health Insurance Scheme, which was scheduled to be launched from First April-2021. In this regard, it is apprised to all concerned that the collection of premium for the said policy has not been started in March due to end of financial year and certain compliance related issues especially the issue pertaining to claiming income tax exemption etc.

It has been decided to launch the scheme by 10th April, 2021 and the final policy documents and link for the premium payment will be opened accordingly.

We further extend our heartiest thanks for showing faith in our endeavor. We once again clarify that though we have started our policy on self contributory method owing to requirements of current times but finally association is committed to move towards implementation of this policy by BSNL and we ensure that in future, it is BSNL which will pay the premium and not the employees. We have already initiated discussion in this regard with the management and held extensive deliberation on the topic with the Director (HR), BSNL Board in our meeting on 22.03.2021.

Group Health Insurance Scheme For BSNL Employees Proposed By AIGETOA CHQ For PAN India Level

AIGETOA thanks one and all for the overwhelming response on the Group Health Insurance proposal. We are now into the process of Final Negotiation with the insurance agency and soon we will be publishing the final proposal which will be at the best rates and best services and benefits.

We are happy to note that employees of almost all cadres across the BSNL have shown their interest on this first Pan India health insurance scheme for BSNL working employees on association platform. This scheme will automatically pave the path to give an insight to management to make indoor treatment in the same manner and Premium to be paid By the employer as done with other corporate organizations.

As assured this scheme will be ready to start by April-2021. This will cover all the major hospitals in the districts across country with cashless claim facilities. Wherever such hospitals are absent, reimbursement shall be applicable provided treatment is taken in 15 or more than 15 bedded hospital. Those who have not submitted their willingness may do so when the link for Final Policy Which shall be opened by AIGETOA.

Group Health Insurance Scheme for BSNL Executives/Employees proposed by AIGETOA CHQ for PAN India level

Dear All,

Though, it is our considerate thought that providing Health Insurance is the duty of employer and we are already into discussion with BSNL Management for improving the medical coverage and facilities. However, CHQ is in receipt of request from many circles for AIGETOA entering into negotiation for a group health insurance for the executives. Based on the request received from many circles, AIGETOA CHQ has decided to get into tie up with Insurance Agency on PAN India Basis in order to ensure best possible quotes as many employees want to get individual health insurance and are facing many difficulties in getting the insurance due to riders associated with the individual policies. As a welfare activity for the BSNL Executives/Employees, AIGETOA is in negotiation with New India Assurance Company Ltd (A central PSU) and Star Health Insurance (The leading Health Insurance Provider in private sector) for a group Health Insurance Scheme.

Salient Features of the proposed Group Medical Health Insurance Policy by AIGETOA.

  1. Best policy conditions with most competitive Premium rates under direct tie up with the company, not through any agent.
  2. All Executives/Employees of BSNL working PAN India is eligible to join. Income Tax rebate will be applicable for the premium.
  3. The policy will be distributed into zones so best TPA in a particular zone can be selected. In case of star health, it will be handled directly by the company. The treatment will be cashless. BSNL is spread throughout the country. At few places cash less treatment may not be available,in that case treatment has to be taken in hospital with 15 or more beds, which will be reimbursed.
  4. Medical Coverage for parents/In-laws can also be added as optional benefits with some extra premium.
  5. Sum Assured i.e. claimable amount for the insurer employees family will be Rs Five Lakhs plus top up.
  6. The provision for extra Top Up amount shall be there in the form of either Corporate Buffer or individual family top up with nominal cost.
  7. Definition of Family shall be as per Govt of India norms.
  8. Coverage will start from day one of the commencement of the policy. No waiting period shall be there.
  9. Pre-existing diseases will also be covered including planned surgeries as added advantage.
  10. Advance Treatment is also applicable with some conditions.
  11. Hernia, Hysterectomy, Cataract etc covered from first day.

We are right now negotiating for around 5000 employees. The current premium quote is expected to be around Rs 6000-7000 annually for 5 lakhs coverage for Self, Spouse and two kids, which is being negotiated for lowering it further. The premium for covering parents shall be extra.

This tentative premium is expected to go further down to a very low premium if the number of optees for the scheme is very high. We are trying to get the policy at the as minimum rates as much as possible as there is no middleman involved and the policy is being negotiated with the company Directly.

In case of any queries and clarification one may contact our respective Circle Secretaries.

We are planning to launch the scheme in the month of March-2021 itself. Accordingly all interested persons are requested to fill up the form latest by 10.03.2021 by clicking the following link.
