Hospital Cash Insurance

Daily Hospital Cash provides a certain amount of money for each day during the hospitalization. The amount paid is fixed at the moment of purchase and does not change.

For Instance - If you are hospitalized and have a plan that pays Hospital Daily Cash of 1,000 INR each day of hospitalization, it makes no difference whether you spend INR 1200 or INR 800 on other medical expenditures. The Insurer will pay a fixed benefit amount of INR 1000 for each day of your admission to the hospital.

Even if per day hospitalization expenses are lesser than Hospicash, the Insurer would still pay the fixed amount of money, without any kind of questions or restrictions.

Benefits of Hospital Daily Cash

Hospital Daily Cash offers various benefits such as:

Coverage for Inadmissible/ Uncovered Expenses

During hospitalization, Insurers do not cover certain expenses which are coined as Inadmissible Expenses, for example- expenses incurred on Diagnostic tests, Surgical Accessories, or costs of the patient’s attendant.

Irrespective of these inclusions & exclusions, the Insurance Company pays Hospital Daily Cash to the policyholder. It can be used to cover hospitalization costs as well as other Incidental expenses such as traveling costs, household bills, food expenses, and the cost of attendant’s transportation. You can utilize the money to cover the costs which are otherwise not covered under a standard Health Plan.

Coverage for Attendant’s Expenses

Usually, there is an attendant (family member, relative, spouse, etc) who takes care of the patient. Miscellaneous/ Incidental expenses like transportation cost, food expenses of the attendant, etc also financially burden the pockets. With the help of the Hospital Daily Cash amount, the policyholder & family have the liberty to spend the money wherever it is required.

All in all, Hospicash helps to pay for incidental expenses which are incurred during the treatment.

Avail No Claim Bonus

The Hospital Daily Cash amount can be utilized to pay small hospital bills for minor ailments or procedures.

For example, Mr. Rajesh was admitted in the hospital for 2-3 days for a minor illness, for which, the hospital bill was not so huge. He paid the bill with his Hospital Daily Cash amount rather than filing a claim under Health Insurance.

Hospital Daily Cash assists you in paying off your medical expenses, prevents filing a claim under your Health Insurance Policy and allows you to preserve No-Claim Bonus.

Convalescence Benefit

If you are hospitalized for a minimum of 10 consecutive days due to an injury or illness, a Sum Amount is paid once during each policy year. This amount varies from Insurer to Insurer.

For instance - You are hospitalized for a few weeks and you won't be able to work during that time, which could result in a loss of income. The Convalescence Benefit partially compensates for this loss of income by providing a lump-sum payment.

Hospital Cash Insurance : FAQs

Yes, you can claim both at the same time. Health Insurance will pay for the expenses covered under the policy and the other will give you a fixed amount on a daily basis.

2. Is the policy of Daily Cash Benefit applicable for maternity and childbirth?

It depends on the policy you have purchased for yourself & your family. Therefore, it is important to make it clear during the time of buying the policy.

3. Can I avail Hospital Daily Cash if the policyholder is admitted in ICU?

In circumstances where the policyholder is admitted in ICU, he/she needs to pay larger expenses, and hence, the policy also offers higher coverage. Daily Hospital Cash becomes double when an ICU hospitalization is involved.
