Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala Government has decided to extend the last date for adding names or making corrections in the MEDISEP identity cards until 25 August. Those who do not correct the mistakes in the cards wouldn’t get insurance coverage. Besides, those who haven’t got the cards until now too can apply now.
In case there are mistakes in the card, the employees must correct them by contacting Drawing and Disbursing Officer (DDO) before 25 August. Meanwhile, the pensioners should contact the treasury officers for the same. The changes that are made after the above date will not be featured in the MEDISEP cards.
Government employees and pensioners should download the MEDISEP identity card from the website www.medisep.kerala.gov.in. They wouldn’t get the benefits of the MEDISEP policy at the hospitals if they do not show this card. Besides, they should produce a photo identity card too.
The employees must use their MEDISEP ID as the user ID to log into the portal. Permanent Employee Number (PEN) will be the password.
Meanwhile, pensioners can give MEDISEP id as user ID and Pension Payment Order (PPO) number as the password. Those who reach the hospitals for treatment should contact the MEDISEP help desks there or dial the toll-free number 1800 425 0237 of the insurance company.
Insurance coverage cannot be enjoyed by submitting the status report instead of the card. Those who have any complaints regarding MEDISEP can enter them in the grievance link on the portal.
MEDISEP or the Medical Insurance for State Employees and Pensioners is a comprehensive health insurance scheme. It was launched on July 1.
