Insurance cover for DU students

13 October 2021


News Desk :
All regular Dhaka University (DU) students have been brought under a health insurance scheme for a yearly premium of Tk 270.
The insurance will enable students to avail health care services in various listed hospitals from now on, according to a circular issued by the Dhaka University Public Relations office on Tuesday.
Students will have to pay a one-time annual premium of only Tk 270 at the time of admission every year to avail this facility, the circular stated.
However, insurance benefits will not be available if a student exceeds the age of 28 or loses his / her studentship. Students will be given a deposit receipt of insurance premium after they deposit the amount during admission.
The slip will need to be attached with the required documents while making a claim, the statement said.
Under health insurance, each student will be eligible for maximum insurance benefit of Tk50,000 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.
The notification further said that 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.
According to the circular, 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 need to contact the office of their respective department for insurance related work, it added.
Dhaka University authorities signed an agreement with an insurance company on July 14, 2019 in order to bring students under life insurance benefits.
However, the agreement only covered the issue of insurance benefits for university teachers and staff.
