Medi-claim for pensioners.


There are some pensioners amongst us, who have not become members of the medical claim scheme of LIC as it exists today, for various reasons. After the LIC started to bear a major portion of the premium, in respect of those have not joined the scheme, LIC’s contribution is a saving for the Corporation.

In private Companies besides the salary, cost of all other benefits are included and shown as components of the employees compensation . If any such benefit is not availed, it is still paid after deduction of I.T.

LIC Pensioners are not having any scheme to cater to domiciliary treatment. As a first step, we should demand the LIC’s savings in respect of those who are not joined the medical claim scheme. LIC would have anyhow come forward to pay the contribution if they have opted for the scheme and should pay such amount as domiciliary benefit to the pensioners.
