It is that time of the year when ex-employees of Steel Authority of India (SAIL) and its steel plants like Bhilai (BSP), Rourkela (RSP), Bokaro, Durgapur, Salem, etc; run around to renew their medical insurance premiums under the SAIL Mediclaim Scheme.
Ex-employees are usually under stress to get the mediclaim renewed for themselves and their spouses as they hardly get the renewal forms on time, by post. Over these years, we have seen that Insurance Companies and Third Party Administers (TPA) have not been very customer friendly but for the two years, the renewal form is available online on the SAIL website and there is also a provision to make the premium payment online through State Bank of India (SBI).
The online premium payment is a very easy and convenient option but since most of the ex-employees may not be very Internet savvy, I guess the best option would be for their children to pay it online. However the fully filled in renewal form and the receipt will have to be submitted in person / sent by post.
Steps to make online SAIL Mediclaim premium payment:
- Go to www.onlinesbi.com and click on the ‘State Bank Collect’ tab on the menu bar
- Next page, click the box ‘I have read and accepted the terms …’ and click on the Proceed button
- Next page – first select ‘National Capital Territory of Delhi’ from drop-down menu under ‘State of Corporate/Institution’ and then select ‘Industry’ under ‘Type of Corporate/Institution’ and then click the Go button
- Next page – select ‘Steel Authority of India Limited’ under Industry name and then click Submit
- Next page – select either ‘Mediclaim Self/ Mediclaim Spouse / Mediclaim Both’, from the drop-down menu, depending on your case
- Enter MIN (Medical Index Number): For ‘Mediclaim self’ or ‘Mediclaim both’,
enter the MIN of Ex-employee. For option ‘spouse’ only, enter MIN of spouse
- On clicking ‘Submit’, page displays member details. Premium amount will be automatically displayed
- Enter all other details, as required and then click Submit to proceed to the payment screen where the payment options along with the applicable transaction charges are displayed
- You can make payment through Credit Card / Debit Card / ATM Card / Net Banking
- On successful payment, please print the e-receipt
Note: I have been using the online system to make the premium payment for my parents’ mediclaim ever since it was introduced. My dad worked in Bhilai Steel Plant for 42 years.
