    Claims that can be raised at New India Assurance network hospitals

    The cashless hospitalisation feature offered by the insurer allows the Third-party administrator (TPA), on behalf of the insurance company, to settle the hospital bills at the time of discharge. A claim for cashless hospitalisation can be raised for any of the expenses admissible as per the policy. According to the policy, only treatments that require hospitalisation for more than 24 hours or certain day-care procedures, mentioned in the policy, which do not require 24 hours of hospitalisation are covered.

    Procedure to file a claim at a New India Assurance network hospital

    Each policyholder has the freedom to avail the cashless facility in any of the network hospitals. The policyholder is required to notify the TPA prior to hospitalisation. He/she needs to provide proof of insurance and proof of identity. After the claim is accepted by the TPA, the payment for the treatment will be made directly to the insured.

    When can a claim be denied in a New India Assurance network hospital

    If a claim has been raised for a treatment that is not covered under the policy, the TPA may reject the claim. In some cases, if the TPA or the insurer have doubts with respect to the admissibility of the claim, the cashless facility might be denied. However, under such circumstances, the insured individual can pay the hospital bills and request for a reimbursement later.
