About Ombudsmen

The term "Ombudsman" comes from Swedish word "Omboodz-man" meaning "a grievance man or person", which the Oxford Dictionary refers to as the "people's defender".


In most democratic countries, there are Ombudsman institutions that are responsible organizations that make the government accountable to the people. Broadly these institutions function to prevent the misuse or abuse of the vast executive power of government by undertaking impartial investigations into governmental activities against its citizens.

Dear Sir,
Since year 2004, I and my wife have a med claim insurance policy of United India Insurance Company for Rs. 1,50,000/- each of us [Totaling Rs. 3,00,000/-].
In year 2012, I suffered a heart attack and availed med claim benefit. Thereafter, I felt that the insurance sum of Rs. 1, 50,000/- each which seemed to be adequate in year 2004 is now insufficient to cover present day expenses owing to market inflation.
Thus at each subsequent renewal, I am requesting local office of United India Insurance Co. for increasing the sum insured. But I am being refused for increase in sum insured because I have suffered heart attack in 2012.
Besides, my wife is also denied revision in sum insured because she had availed med claim for a gyno myomectomy surgical procedure in 2011.
I would, please, like to know –
- After having availed couple of med claim benefits in these years, Can’t we revise the decades old sum insured for our continued med claim policy now?
- If yes, how to do it?
- If can’t, would like to know regarding appropriate rules in this regard.

i had taken a health insurance policy from, Medical check up was conducted and they informed me that I have complaint of Diabetic and so any claim related to that will be disallowed. I never had diabetic problem and I took another test to confirm this, my sugar level was found 98. I am requesting star health to provide me a copy of their report which they are refusing- what should I do?

Dear sir, My self and my wife has mediclaim policy from future generalii No.2011-H0023996-FHI.

My wife was ill and got hospitalised in Adinath Hospital, Indirapuram on 02.09.2011 as a case of dengue fever.

Hospital send request for cashless which was refused by Insurance compony on baseless ground and ask for rembursment.

My wife remain admitted till 07.09.2011 and Hospital raised a bill of Rs. 33752/-

Insurance person visited the hospital and varified the presence of pateint in Hospital.

Initially insurance compony was not resonding for claim and when ever contacted gives the answer that claim is under process but when complaint was registered with IRDA

Insurance compony rejected the claim on the following grounds;

1. Pt. has given a wronge residential address - How a residential address can be cause for no claim even when Pateint presence in hospital was confirm=
ed by insurance compony and all corospondance even renewal of policy was with same address.

2. My self is a doctor and director of the Adinath Hospital - how does being my self doctor and director of treating hospital leads to no claim for insura=
nce compony.

Insurance compony representative repeatedly visit the address and harash my wife and her sister in law once they was alone in the house.

Now you are requested to see the matter and ask insurance compony to pay the claim with intrest and panalty for harashment.

Thanks with regard

Jain

Please file a case against rejection of claim in Consumer Court of your area. As regards, harrassment, please lodge FIR against insurance company.
