Insurance benefits

Life can be unpredictable and we know your needs change with time. That is why our Flexible Benefits Plan has been designed to provide you and your dependents with a comprehensive insurance cover around Medical, Personal Accident and Term/Life. We also have the Reimbursable Benefits (such as Fitness, Tuition Assistance and Child Care), which allow you to allocate a part of your Flex Points towards these in case you choose to top up any of the reimbursable benefits.

Microsoft’s Medical insurance policy is unique in many ways. First, it is a floater cover, which means that you have the flexibility to spend the entire amount on one person and there is no cap on the amount per person so long as it is within the overall coverage amount. Second, there is no cost sharing on actual expenses incurred (so long as it falls within the policy guidelines).

Medical insurance benefits

The chart highlighting a list of medical insurance benefits in two categories – 1. For both Employees and their Dependents and 2. For Employees only. The first category include hospitalization cover along with the exclusive health check-up, maternity benefit, outpatient/domiciliary cover, and dental and vision. The second category i.e. benefits for only employees include support during extended hospitalization or unpaid leave of absence, hospitalization cash allowance of ₹ 10,000 per day for all days exceeding 10 days, and salary loss protection plan of ₹ 20,000 per week during hospitalization while on leave of absence.

How it works

How it works
Microsoft India pays the full cost of your core benefits, and gives you the added flexibility to buy optional benefits around medical, accident and life / term cover by allocating you 15000 Flex Points per fiscal (where 1 flex Point = 1 ₹). All employees are allocated the same number of Flex Points. A new employee is awarded Flex Points pro rata from his or her date of joining. Flex points can be used to top up or buy additional coverage against the benefits available under this plan. If your insurance-related benefit choices cost less than your Flex points, you can choose to use them to top up your reimbursable benefits. If your insurance-related benefit choices cost more than your Flex points, the additional amount gets deducted from your salary.
