Can the insurance company throw light on circular by IRDA not to restrict claim for cataract operation to Rs.24,000.00


It is saddening to hear that New India Assurance is not doing the above two policy because they don't find viability due to less premium and more work. They don't get anything in these two policies hence don't want to do. Even speak to NOIDA Branch, Regional Head,No reply . Pawan Kumar Singh , Founder President Purvanchal Vikas Foundation, Right Now Organization is working with Migrant wage workers in Delhi/NCR and we want all workers are covered under social security. Mor than 100 workers are registered with us and adding per day.

If you have been a heart patient / Blood Pressure and if this info was not provided earlier, TPA action is justified. In fact, it is good on their part that they have given youalmost 60% of your expenses. However, many times either the agent misguides or our ignorance plays a role but to save on few Rs of Premium, such things are not disclosed to Insurance companies. But still I think since you are a loyal customer for several years, you should contest this decision first by escalating it to higher authorities in Insurance company [See their web-site], if no response, you can file a case in consumer court, if not satisfied.
