How To Manage Group Mediclaim Policy Effectively?

How To Manage Group Mediclaim Policy Effectively ?

A group Mediclaim policy is a kind of health insurance that provides coverage for individuals who are employed by the same company. Given that the business pays the cost, it is frequently provided as a useful benefit to employees. In some circumstances, the employee’s family may be covered by the group health insurance.

However, the cost is significantly lower than individual health insurance plans, and companies also benefit from tax breaks, making it advantageous for both the employer and the employee.

Process To Be Followed In Planned And Unplanned Hospitalization

In case of a planned authorization, all non-emergency hospitalization situations require prior authorization from the Help Desk. This is done to guarantee that the insured member receives the best treatment available and is not inconvenienced when seeking admission into a Network Hospital.

You must get hospital admittance after your hospitalization has been pre-authorized. Raksha TPA will give the hospital a letter of credit or a cashless approval letter. Please provide your government-issued health ID cards at the hospital entrance desk. In the event of a network hospital, the insured member does not need to pay the hospitalization bill.
The invoice will be issued to and paid for by Raksha TPA, but the employee or patient must cover any disapproved amounts. However, in case of an unplanned hospitalization, employees can get up to seven days before the entrance to request cashless approval. The cashless authorization form is accessible at the hospital’s TPA assistance desk. When visiting TPA, the employee must have a TPA Card and a valid ID. Once the hospital has given you all the necessary information, it takes no longer than three hours to approve cashless claims.
