Dear All,
We are in the process of framing medical policy where we are taking family floater.
I want to know if female married staff member´s in law parents need to be mentioned as dependent parents?
doest copmany overs in laws for female staff medical policy?

From India, Gwalior
when we talk about group mediclaim policy for our employees as family floater, as per the mediclaim policy providers they usually prefer the biological parents for all employees (both male & female) for all married and unmarried employees.
In our organization as well, we take biological parents for all married female employees.

thanks for your reply but in my organization they are not taking female married staff´s biological parents stating that after marriage her parents are not dependant.
then in that case i proposed in law´s .
but now i think none of the parents will be part of it for married female staff as compared to male staff, (their dependant parents included)which i feel is not just.

From India, Gwalior
A per our country's law and order, no-where mentioned that after marriage of any lady, her biological parents are not their dependents.
So nobody can prove it.
Would not like to comment in your organizations point of view but you can take initiative to make it possible as there are many females who are single child and in their case it would be very unfair.

Dear Chika,
I hope, your company directors are educated.
Why cant a girl's parents be dependant on her after her marraige, which school of thought is your company stuck in, is your company in some third world nation.
I fail to understand, how can your company be so crude and so gender baised.

echoing octavious,
if people can discharge their obligations with their own money why cant organisations be progressive.
could be either male or female.
can take care of own parents/ in laws/ son in laws/ daughter in laws too ...
anyone cud be a dependent..
in meghalaya, we have a matrilineal system..
the youngest daughter inherits property.. with a rider she has to offer refuge to anyone in the family who needs it...

The market practice is to give option to female employees to cover either in-laws or parents. Male employees can cover only parents. In several cases since both husband-wife is working, husband's parents are covered under his employer. Hence makes sense for wife to cover her parents within her company.
If you let me know your industry, I can give you available benchmarks to convince your management.

Hi all,
With regard to the medical policy in case of an unmarried Employee we can claim our parents and unmarried sisters or brothers as dependents.
In case of a married Male Employee, he can claim his parents along with his spouse and children as dependents.
Same way if a Female Employee is married, then as her inlaws shall be covered already as dependents with her spouse, she can declare her parents as dependents.

hi all,
The best example to give your directors is ESIC... Even in the ESIC , female employees biological parents are covered irrespective of married or unmarried. You can Refer ESIC ACt for further information.
