Soon, your mediclaim could cover overseas hospitals too

Medical care at overseas hospitals could well be within your reach with a number of health insurance providers planning to launch a premium health cover shortly.

Health insurance providers, both private and state-owned , are readying products targeted at high networth individuals that would provide a cover of about Rs 50 lakh.

“We are working on the details of the product and will soon file it with the regulator for approval,” said M Ramadoss, chairman and managing director, New India Assurance.

Insured will have the option to be treated at hospital of his choice, both in India as well as overseas. Insurance companies, however, will also provide a suggested list of network of hospitals. Insurance companies will not insist on customers exploring the domestic option first.

In today's time we can not even rely on the well reputed companies like "Oriental Insurance" etc.
Me and all my family members have there mediclaim policies since 10 year and above, but till date I am not at all satisfied with any of there services because of their Incompetent agents and service providers.

I had already faced a big problem in the past with this company when we waited extremely long for the repayment of hospital bills & the refund of the left over policy amount of my dad's policy after he passed away in 2006,we ran every where but no one paid any attention to our problem, then we requested consumer court to file our case against the company etc. it took lot of time more then 1.5 years for solving the problem with the help of top company officers, who were very understanding and really helpful to us, I am still thankful to all who understood us and helped us.

Today I felt forced to write this mail coz of Mr. A.K CHOUDHARY's continues Irresponsible behavior and also filed a case in consumer court , from last many year (almost 3-4 years) every time he came for the renewal of the policy, always took our photos for the cashless cards etc but always misplace it and never send the cashless card ever on time, sometimes cards comes after 5-6 months but along with the time the delay time was not reduced rather was becoming worse, all the times we submitted the photos twice or even thrice but this time from last almost 8-9 months we haven’t received our cashless card as yet, even they delay in sending the complete policy papers many times.

We as an old and loyal customers never said anything from so long time but now this is the height of irresponsibility on company's part.

Now i am no more interested to continue my policy, rather this time I’ll close it down with this company once and for all.
