Filing claims was never so simple. Just follow these steps and you’re done!

With cashless treatments across the empanelled hospitals, you get treated for a particular illness without paying a single penny of the medical bills.

Here’s how you can file a cashless claim:
While cashless claims highlight the ease of getting your cashless treatments done, you can also choose to get your treatment done at your cost and reimburse the claim amount later. Here’s where the reimbursement claim process gains significance.
This is what you need to do, in case you were to face those rainy days–
You need to approach the network hospital along with your policy details.
The network hospital verifies the details provided by you and sends a pre-authorization form to the network hospital.
The insurance provider verifies the pre-authorization request and informs the network hospital about your policy's coverage. If needed, the insurance provider may send a query letter to the network hospital requesting more details. The network hospital needs to respond to this query with the information requested for.
Once the network hospital receives approval from the insurance provider, treatment begins. Upon discharge from the network hospital, the final bill, along with the discharge papers, are sent to the insurance provider. The insurance provider will settle the final amount with the network hospital after deducting co-payment (if applicable) and other consumable expenses.
Should the pre-authorization request get rejected; you will have to bear all treatment expenses which can be reimbursed later.
*Note: Relaxations in the timelines mentioned above may be considered in the extreme cases of hardship where it is proved to our satisfaction that under the circumstances in which you were placed, it was not possible for you or any other person to give notice or file claim within the prescribed time limit.
Once discharged from hospital, you need to collect all original documents and bills and submit them to the insurance provider.
The insurance provider initiates scrutiny of all claim-related documents. If additional documents are needed, you will be intimated about the additional documents required.
Once all necessary documents are received, the insurance provider approves the claim.
Payment will be released to you based on what is admissible under the insurance policy.
The insurance provider may cancel your insurance policy providing a written notice 15 days prior to cancellation date. If no claim has been made, a refund of the premium for the unexpired policy period shall be provided on a pro-rata basis.
Your insurance policy will be cancelled for reasons such as non-disclosure of material facts, misrepresentation, fraud and non-cooperation.
As a customer, you may cancel your insurance policy by providing a written notice 15 days prior to cancellation date. If you've made no claims, the insurer will refund short-term rates for the unexpired policy period as per the rates detailed below.

Apart from understanding the process, it is also very important to note why your claims on your health insurance may get rejected. This way, you can prevent the rejection of your claim and make full use of your insurance coverage. Here are a few reasons why your claims may get rejected:
In case the treatment cost exceeds the sum insured amount you are entitled for, your claims may get rejected
In case the claim is made for a treatment cost that is not covered under the plan, you claim request is rejected.
If any incorrect or false information is provided during claim intimation, the claim is held invalid and is rejected.
If you file a claim after your policy has lapsed, the claims stand null. This further reinstates the importance of renewing your health insurance on time.
In case you file a claim for the expenses of the treatment of a disease having a certain waiting period which is still not completed, your claim could be denied.
