Dear LIC Pensioner Friends,
Upper Limits for Room Charges under Group Medi Claim Policy recently renewed for 2018-19 are as below.
For A Class Cities Rs 7500 SI upto Rs 30 Lacs
Rs 8500 SI Rs 40/50 Lacs
For B Class Cities Rs 5000
For Other Cities Rs 4000
The Ground Reality is that existing rates of room charges in All Good Private Hospitals in B Class Cities or Other Cities are almost at par with A Class Cities only and it is next to impossible to get rooms as per prescribed limits for LIC Working Staff and Retired Employees both in B Class or Other Cities Category causing a major financial loss to both employees / Pensioners not only in room tariff but with proportional cut in all other treatment expenses.
It is high time that All Organisations for Working LIC Staff as well as Pensioners Associations take up this issue with Top LIC Management at the earliest.
