It is not mandatory. But this mediclaim acts as a social security to the employees and their dependants. Many companies process the claims through Service provider. In our company we process the claims directly with the Insurance . Company is responsible for their admission and other formalities. Employees will be in ease and their productivity is not affected by this. Employees will also be more loyal to company.

Reference to ur querry the coverage of mediclaim is not mandatory. But however if employees covered under ESI (Employees State Insurance)
The Employees’ State Insurance Scheme provides full medical care in the form of medical attendance, treatment, drugs and injections, specialist consultation and hospitalization to insured persons and also to members of their families where the facility for Specialist consultation, hospitalization has been extended to the families
If the employees are out of ESI (Drawing salary/wages Rs.10000/- +) we have to take care of their health.
It is a human right to secure good health by acquiring adequate coverage against the financial risks and medical emergencies of employees and their family members. Mediclaim serves the purpose of protecting valuable health of employees and their family members. Healthcare involves the services developed to safeguard health, including medical facilities, professional and financial services such as medical insurance. We are exposed to various hazards that can damage not just our physical health, but also our finances. Thus, Mediclaim or Health Insurance becomes significant as it provides monetary protection in case of such unforeseen situations.

As you have by now come to know that it is not mandatory. I would suggest to keep a medical reimbursement component in the CTC Structure which is Tax exempted upto 15000 per annum. Only if the original medical bill are submitted. This reimbursement is widely accepted amongst the employees. & apart from this you can also avail for a Group insurance plan that best suits your organisations need.

As all have been mentioning so far , Medical benefit is not a mandatory option. This is a privilege given by the company as a security towards health issues
At times companies have options where the premium amount is shared by both the employer and employee. Medical Benefit can be provided for the employee only or for the family , this would differ company to company.
In any case mandatory or not it is always advisable for companies to have this options of benefit as one of the first to provide.
Thanks & Regards

This is mandatory to cover employees under the group mediclaim insurance. If the establishment covered under ESI Act, additional insurance cover is not required for the employee under ESI. And where the establishment is covered under EPF; employer have option to go for EDLI or group medical insurance from LIC of India. If the contribution to EDLI are not being made then the intimation to EPFO shall be given that the insurance cover has been provided to all the employees through the insurance company and there is no need to contribute in the EDLI with EPFO.

Its not mandatory, but majority of the company today opt for group mediclaim benefits to their employees. The main benefit in group mediclaim policies are that you can get all pre-existing disease covered from day 1 along with common exclusions.
