Dear Friend,
Request you to note that the Matenity act is applicable for the working women ( employee ) only whose salary is over and above Rs.10000/- pm other wise the ESIC will take care of their maternity benefits if they are covered under ESI act. If the employee is not covered under ESI act then the Maternity benefit act is applicable for the employee only. No where the spouse of an employee is eligible for Maternity benefit under maternity benefit act or ESI act but if the employee is covered under ESI act then all types of treatment wrt maternity will be extended by the ESI. No responsibility lies with the employer in reimbursing the expenses wrt spouse of the employee even he wants or don't wants to avail the benefits under ESI schem.
Thanks and regards - kameswarao

In order to be eligible for maternity benefit under ESI, a woman employee should have contributed for 70 days in the preceding two consecutive contribution periods. Therefore, the actual or expected date of confinement should fall within the first benefit period. Even a woman employee who had contributed for more than 70 days in the contribution period will not be eligible for benefits if her date of delivery takes place before her first benefit period.
In the absence of information about the contribution for the preceding two contribution periods (the post only gives that there were 30 days contribution in the contribution period just preceding the date of delivery) and the actual or expected date of delivery to see whether it falls within her first benefit period it is not posible to give a proper reply.

Employees wife can have treatment through ESI and avail all medical benefits. Employee is not beefitted with any leave through ESI.
He is not eligible for any re-imbursement if the treatment is taken in a Pvt. Hospital.
How ever, if the company has got some Group Mediclaim Policy for their employees and their dependents which covers maternity benefit. He shall get the reimbursement.
