In its fervent attempt to ensure that every individual in every part of India is bestowed with the benefit of health insurance, the government has launched an exclusive mediclaim scheme for public sector employees in Kerala. Launched via the Kerala state government, the scheme is known by the name MEDISEP and covers both government employees and pensioners in Kerala. Under the MEDISEP program, the beneficiaries are entitled to receive cashless treatment at medical facilities in case of an emergency. Let us know all about this scheme in the blog below.
MEDISEP is the acronym for Medical Insurance for State Employees and Pensioners. The scheme was enforced in the state of Kerala on January 1, 2022, and has been serving its beneficiaries since. All state workers, including those who have retired from government service, are encouraged to participate in the mediclaim program. Those individuals who are not enlisted in the policy or have not provided details of their respective beneficiaries (family members) are also allowed under the scheme to make appropriate amendments. This is done to ensure that every person in the state is covered under the MEDISEP health insurance scheme.
The MEDISEP health insurance scheme provides cashless medical treatment to all state employees and pensioners. A monthly amount of Rs. 500 is deducted from the beneficiaries’ income towards the payment of the annual insurance premium of Rs. 6,000 for the policy.
MEDISEP is a comprehensive health insurance scheme for all employees serving the Kerala state government. These include employees serving the High Court of Kerala as well as pensioners of the state government. The families of all these beneficiaries, which includes their spouses and kids less than 25 years old, are also eligible to receive benefits under the scheme. Any family member who is physically or mentally disabled is also allowed benefits under the program.
The insurance term under the MEDISEP Kerala policy is for a total duration of 3 years.
If you’re a state employee or pensioner with the Kerala government, you’re entitled to be covered under the MEDISEP health insurance scheme. It is fairly easy to apply for the program from the comfort of your home using online services. Here is the exact step-by-step procedure to apply for the MEDISEP health insurance scheme online:
Once you apply for the scheme and are accepted as a beneficiary, you can perform a MEDISEP status check online from time to time. Here’s how:
To receive the cashless treatment benefit under the MEDISEP health insurance scheme, you must obtain a MEDISEP card. This can easily be downloaded online and must be preserved safely as it serves as the beneficiary’s ID card to avail of the benefits under the scheme. The MEDISEP card download procedure can be done on the official website of MEDISEP Kerala using the beneficiary’s MEDISEP login credentials. Once downloaded, the MEDISEP ID card will be generated.
MEDISEP offers its beneficiaries the advantage of availing cashless medical treatment at any network hospital that has a tie-up with the scheme. These network hospitals are available in every district of Kerala to provide beneficiaries with the maximum benefit and convenience.
Following are some of the MEDISEP hospitals covered under the plan:
