The PNB-Oriental Royal Mediclaim Policy is a health insurance plan that is exclusively catered towards employees and account holders of Punjab National Bank (PNB). The plan can be extended to cover the proposer’s immediate family, i.e., his/her spouse and two children. By way of this policy, insured members can eliminate or reduce expenses that they might have to incur due to an unplanned hospitalisation or medical emergency.
In order to be eligible to subscribe to this plan, one must ensure that he/she meets the eligibility criteria that is set by the insurance company.

The premium is required to be paid in advance before the purchase of the policy. The renewal premium can be paid the following year before the premium payment due date. The company generally sends the renewal notice and it will contain details of the premium amount to be paid. The company may or may not revise the premium amount to be paid by the individual. The premium payment is not automatic and should hence be paid in time to continue enjoying the benefits under the plan.
The insurance company requires the policyholder to notify them about any possible claims within 48 hours of admission to the hospital or before discharge from the hospital, whichever is earlier. The intimation needs to be given in writing through fax or e-mail with the following information:
To get a reimbursement of the expenses incurred on your treatment, you can submit the following documents to the insurer/TPA:
The documents should be duly attested by the insured person and submitted to the insurer/TPA within 7 days from the date of discharge from the hospital. In case the insurer/TPA asks for any other information, the same will need to be provided at the earliest.
You can avail cashless services under your Royal Mediclaim policy from any network hospital or nursing home. You will have to get a pre-authorisation letter to avail the service. Once you submit all relevant information regarding your policy and the treatment you are going to avail, the insurer/TPA will verify the details and either approve or reject the request. If the request is denied, you can always pay the hospital bill yourself and apply for a reimbursement within 7 days from the date of discharge from the hospital.
Yes, you can cancel your policy if you need to. The company may even permit a refund of the premium paid by you, provided no claims have been made from the start of the policy up to cancellation.
