Applicable to Singareni employees as well as officers as well as retirees: The Company is prepared to pay the bills wherever medical services are available in addition to the hospitals contracted for medical services with Singareni.
Circular issued by Director Mr. S. Chandrasekhar today
The management said that the company would reimburse the medical expenses incurred by the Singareni employees and former employees suffering from Covid disease not only in the hospitals where Singareni is contracted for emergency medical services but also in other hospitals where medical services are available.
According to a circular issued by the Director, Personnel Administration and Welfare, Mr.S. Chandrasekhar on Sunday, the Singareni workers’ officers as well as retired officers are applying the facility to the workers.
Singareni has entered into agreements for medical services with Hyderabad, Karimnagar, Warangal, Vijayawada and other super specialty hospitals. Covet has entered into agreements with some of these hospitals with special tariffs for medical services.
Singareni pays the medical expenses of the Covid victims directly to the hospital if they are treated at the hospital. However, the company does not cover the costs of a worker receiving treatment at a hospital that has not yet contracted with Singareni.
However, the union recognized that the company had recently issued an appeal asking the company to pay the medical expenses of an employee or a former employee suffering from covid disease as it is urgently possible to reach the hospitals available to him.
The Company CMD Mr. N. Sridhar, who examined it, responded positively and agreed to bear the medical expenses even if medical services were obtained at hospitals which were not on the Singareni list in case of emergencies. Director Mr. S. Chandrasekhar issued a circular to this effect on Sunday.
The medical expenses will be paid as per the tariff of the Nizam Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS) in Hyderabad and will be paid as in all other hospitals contracted with Singareni.
Workers, officers and retired employees are happy that Singareni has agreed to pay for the cost of emergency Covid medical services at hospitals that are not contracted by Singareni.
