The Union Finance Minister P.Chidambaram on 24 April 2013 launched medi claim facility for the farmers holding Kisan Credit Cards (KCC) issued by Dena Bank. The medi claim policies along with ID cards were handed over to six farmers of different States holding KCC of Dena Bank.
The medi claim facility was introduced by Dena Bank and United India Insurance Company (UIIC) for benefiting the farmers. The scheme will enable hassle free cashless medi claim facility to the farmers. Once successful on the small scale, the scheme would be considered to be implemented on the large scale as well.
It is important to note that this is the first time that the initiative like this was taken over by any bank in India. This facility will be available only to the KCC holder of Dena Bank and his/her spouse and two children under tie up with UIIC under Group Health insurance cover. This cashless facility will be available at around 4200 hospitals all over the country.
Dena Bank launched this Nobel scheme for the 225000 KCC holder farmer customers which also cover their family members under the Mediclaim with maximum cover up to Rupees Thirty Thousand.
