eMediNexus    19 February 2018

New India Assurance Company has now issued a circular to all the regional offices across the country instructing them not to approve medical claims if the reports are signed by unqualified staff. 


The insurance company circular states that the reports attached for approval of insurance claims will have to be signed by a registered medical practitioner, registered with the Medical Council of India (MCI) and having a post-graduate certification in pathology. The circular states that the instructions of the Supreme Court of India and the MCI have to be strictly adhered to by all offices without any exception.
