Introduction

CMC understands the importance of having a healthy workforce for building a healthy and productive workplace.
For CMC, the health and wellbeing of all employees and their family is paramount. Hence, CMC wishes to provide
them with easy access to best-in-class medical facilities through a Comprehensive Health Insurance Scheme.

A Health Insurance Scheme (HIS) is protection for an insured person against the costs of Hospitalisationand medical
care arising from a medical condition.

Furthermore, CMC is also committed to ensuring continued health and well being of employees and their family
post retirement, hence, the benefits of the HIS scheme are also extended to retired employees.

The CMC HIS Policy gives the general guideline which any HIS Scheme offered to CMC employees must address.

The specifics of the Health insurance cover (extent of cover, medical conditions covered, benefits provided,
premium payment & employee’s contribution) are all subject to the prevailing scheme. Details of the same are
available in the CMC HIS Scheme.

Refer Appendix “A” for details on the HIS Scheme

CMC periodically reviews the scheme and its provisions so as to ensure that the employees are deriving optimal
value from the scheme. Hence, these schemes are subject to a revision which may result in a corresponding change
in the entitlement, the extent of coverage, the premium to be paid, dependants who can be covered, etc.

Purpose

The purpose of the Heath Insurance policy is as follows:

1. To provide employees and their family prompt & easy access to excellent medical facilities.

2. To minimize any medical risks to the employees, hence secure their good health, wellbeing & productivity.

3. To protect the employee against financial loss from a personal accident or medical condition.

4. To ensure continued health and wellbeing of employees and their family post retirement, hence, foster a sense
of belonging to the CMC family.

cashless hospitalisation on behalf of the Insurance Company. Final discretion and approval of all benefits under the
HIS resides with the Insurance Company

Details of the Scheme

The HIS offers two types of Insurance cover:

- Basic cover: All employees of CMC and their enroled family members are insured for a basic cover and
entitled to the benefits on payment of applicable premium as per the scheme. Premium for basic coverage of
self, spouse and first two dependant children is borne by CMC.

payment of an additional premium by the employee.

insurance provider which may not require 24 hours of hospitalization but which are being

Hospitalization, but which are still covered under Hospitalization Benefits.
