  • First and Foremost important point is that records and copies of all relevant documents should be maintained.
  • Make a note of all transactions between yourself (policyholder) and the insurance agent and the insurance company.
  • Maintain a file of correspondences in order for easy tracking and retrieval of information.
  • Maintain a record of the receipts (from the agent and Insurance Company), policy documents and TPA (Third Party Administrator) cards in order.
  • Approach the Customer Care Department and explain them your grievances or disputes regarding the claim. Give the Insurance companies sufficient time or duration to address your doubts and grievances.
  • If the policyholder does not feel satisfied with the reply, he/she can elevate this dispute by approaching the Insurance Ombudsman.

  • If the outcome at the Ombudsman remains unsatisfactory, it is possible to examine the possibility of taking the legal route i.e approaching the court or the Consumer Forum.
  • If the claim amount involved is high, services of a suitable lawyer or an advocate can be taken.
  • Remember that negotiation skills and tenacity to overcome the challenges for the sake of your rights are essential for resolving the disputes pertaining to the claim.
