How Does the Health Insurance Claims Process Work?
The health insurer will only process your claims if the policy covers your medical condition, so read the fine print. Choosing a slightly more expensive plan with better coverage is preferable to select the cheapest option and not receiving adequate coverage.
There are two kinds of claims that can be made under health insurance policies. They are as follows:
• Reimbursement of cashless claims
• Cashless claims
Cashless Claims - If you filed a cashless claim, you would not have to pay anything; the insurance company would settle the claim directly with the hospital. This means that you can seek treatment at any network hospital, and your bills will be paid directly by the insurance company without you having to pay anything.
Claims for Reimbursement
Under the reimbursement option, you must first pay for the bills, and then, after the claim is processed, the insurance provider will reimburse you for the money you spent, as stated on the original hospital bills. This will inevitably be more difficult than a cashless claim. However, you do not have to seek medical attention only at a network hospital. You are free to go to any hospital of your choice.
