Health Insurance:

Health Insurance is a group insurance facility offered to all students enrolled in the Institute on payment of the required premium contribution. With this scheme, all the students are covered under cashless hospitalisation for Rs.1 Lakh, Personal Accident cover of Rs.1 Lakh and OPD cover of Rs. 5,000/- per year. The coverage provides benefit to the students when they get hospitalised owing to an accident or any other illness.

In order to avail of the cashless facility, the students must ensure that they are admitted to one of the network hospitals of the service provider. In case the student gets admitted to any other hospital, he/she/they are expected to pay the bill amount and seek reimbursement of expenses by forwarding the claim to the OSA within 20 days of discharge, as per the procedures set for the same in the policy document. The updated list of network hospitals, can be accessed on the website of the service provider.

Guidelines and Procedures

All students, including those eligible for GoI-Post-Matric Scholarships are required to pay the Health Insurance Premium contribution every year i.e. along with 1st and 3rd semester fee.

  1. The insurance premium of those students who have paid the fees will be forwarded to the service provider as soon as the challan is received. Generally, it takes 15–20 days to receive the cards from the company; if a student is hospitalised during this period, he/she has to bear the expenses and the bills can be sent for reimbursement later.
  2. In such cases, students should inform the OSA within 24 hours of their hospitalisation and should submit the reimbursement claim within 20 days of hospitalisation.
  3. All claims to be submitted properly with necessary documents and any delay in submission will result in rejection of the claim.
  4. As soon as the Health Insurance Cards are received by the OSA, they will be sent to the respective School Secretariats. Students are requested to collect their Health Insurance Cards from the respective secretariats as soon as it is intimated to them under acknowledgement.

The working hours of the Centre are adapted to the student’s needs. There are accomplished counsellors with diverse expertise, who help the students in their day-to-day concerns and also with the mental health concerns faced by students.

PLACEMENT AND TRAINING

The placement scenario at all our campuses (Mumbai, Tuljapur, Hyderabad and Guwahati) has always been extremely positive. Student representatives take the lead and work with faculty coordinators of respective Schools. The flagship programs from SSW, SMLS and SHSS have networked with alumni and several stakeholders to ensure placements of students.

Few students also start their own enterprise/field action project and have contributed to the sector tremendously.

In addition to the School level placements and faculty coordinators, we have Training and Placement Officer in Mumbai Campus, who organises series of training session to enhance employability skills of the outgoing batch students.
