DU students brought under health insurance scheme

All the regular students of Dhaka University (DU) have been brought under a health insurance scheme for a yearly premium of Tk 270.

Only regular students within the age limit of 28 will be eligible to avail health care services in various listed hospitals from now on under the coverages, said a press release.

To avail this facility, each student will have to pay a one-time annual premium of only Tk 270 at the time of admission every year.

However, insurance benefits will not be available if a student exceeds the age of 28 or loses studentship.

Students will be given a deposit receipt which will be needed to be attached with the  required documents while making a claim, added the release.

Under the insurance, each student will be eligible for maximum insurance benefit of Tk 50,000 per year for hospital admission.

Of this, a maximum of Tk 5,000 per day will be available for cabin or ward rent, hospital services, surgical expenses, doctor's consultation fees, medicines and examination bills while in the hospital.

In the case of outdoor treatment, there is an annual allocation of Tk10,000 for each student which will cover the cost of outdoor examinations and doctor's consultation fees of maximum Tk 500 each day.

Students who are yet to pay the annual premium during the current academic year, can deposit the premium by clicking the ‘Health Insurance’ button and logging in to the website- https://student.eis.du.ac.bd.

Students have been asked to contact with the office of their respective department for insurance related activities.
