Hospitalization can be of two types:
- Planned Hospitalization: This happens when you have ample time to plan your admission to the hospital. For example, if your doctor advises a surgery for hernia anytime in the next few weeks, you have time to plan your hospitalization
- Emergency Hospitalization: This happens typically in case of emergencies, such as a road traffic accident. One cannot plan for such hospitalization.

Depending on the situation and your policy coverage, you can make two types of health insurance claims:
- Cashless: The essence of cashless hospitalization is that the insured need not make an upfront payment to the hospital at the time of admission.
- Reimbursement: A reimbursement claim is one where you pay all the expenses related to the hospitalization of the insured and claim a reimbursement of your expenses after discharge.
Cashless hospitalization can be availed only at a Medi Assist network hospital and upon approval of your pre-authorization application. Click here, for details of availing cashless hospitalization.
