Insurance companies have tie-up arrangements with several hospitals which are called network hospitals. Under a health insurance policy, a policyholder can take treatment in any of the network hospitals without having to pay the hospital bills as the payment is made to the hospital directly by the insurance company. TPA helps in organizing cashless treatment to the member. However, expenses beyond the limits or sub-limits as per terms and conditions of the insurance policy or expenses not covered under the policy have to be paid by customer directly to the hospital. Preauthorization, however, is not available if treatment is taken in a non-network hospital.

Preauthorization is facilitated by TPA at network Hospitals. Patient should contact an Empanelled Hospital for treatment. Hospital would then send the duly filled preauthorization request to HI TPA prior to planned hospitalizations. For emergency cases preauthorization process can be initiated within 24 hours of hospitalization.

HI TPA would then process the pre-authorization based on policy terms and convey its decision on admissibility to the Hospital. If the cashless is extended, patient is required to pay only for the Non Payable Expenses.

If the Preauthorization is denied, patient pays the hospital bill, collects original receipts and other documents at the time of discharge from the Hospital and files for reimbursement claim later on.

Cashless facility can be availed at any of the network hospitals listed on HI TPA or insurance company website. The insured has a choice to go to any of the hospitals/nursing homes which are part of the Insurer/TPA network it can also be confirmed through call center toll free numbers ……… and ………. It is useful to confirm before seeking admission because network of hospitals is continuously updated with new additions and deletions.

In the absence of network hospital of choice or due to any other reason, insured can get treated at the hospital of choice which means the entire bill is paid by the policy holder and claim for reimbursement of expenses. The claim shall then be processed as per policy terms and conditions.
