The benefits of this plan come in two different parts, and they provide coverage for OPD treatment as well as hospitalisation.

    Claim Procedure

    The claim procedure for hospitalisation treatment begins with intimation to the company about the event that may give rise to a claim. Cashless treatment follows the standard procedure that involves getting authorisation from the company before treatment. For reimbursement claims, the insured must submit the medical bills, diagnostic reports, prescriptions, physician certificate, etc. collected during hospital stay.

    Outpatient treatment typically does not involve a lot of documentation. Hence, cashless treatment is not possible here. Following a hospital visit that may involve less than 24-hours of hospitalisation, you may make a claim under this policy with the bills and receipts obtained from the hospital. If you have any doubts regarding the claim process, you may contact the company’s customer care department. After verification of the submitted documents, the company will reimburse the claim amount to the insured person.
