20. Please indicate the extent to which you agree or disagree with the following statements. (Kindly tick () the proper box). Strongly Agree Helpdesks(Point of Interaction) My TPA was easily accessible at the help desk of hospital. TPAs Helpdesks are efficient and prompt and ease the process of coverage / admission / Discharge. Information given by TPA Helpdesk for various purposes was clearly understandable. There should be a system of immediate feedback on service of a TPA at Helpdesk. I felt that getting serviced through a TPA is a complex process. No grievance redressal mechanism is there in place at helpdesk for health insurance customers. Helplines of TPAs/insurance companies are mere an eyewash Information Information given by TPAs through its leaflets / consumer guide is clearly understandable. I faced difficulty in getting information about the process of admission, discharge and settlement I was unable to understand the terms and conditions of my health insurance policy My TPA was helpful in providing information to me regarding my health insurance policy Service TPA was prompt in replying on preauthorisation while I got my patient / myself admitted in hospital TPAs refused the coverage partially / fully. Agents / telesales / helplines are more keen in selling their insurance than understanding my needs and helping or providing information Overall Health insurance would have been simple without TPAs. Cost of treatment would have been substantially less than what I paid through TPA based health insurance. Government needs to introduce stricter norms to control TPAs. I would like request the company to change my TPA. TPAs should be removed from the business of health insurance.
