      Royal Sundaram Health Insurance claims can be made in two ways:

      • Cashless Health Insurance Claim
      • Health Insurance Reimbursement Claim

      The procedure for both is different. Let’s have a look

      For claiming cashless benefits, the insured must avail of the treatment from a network hospital only. Royal Sundaram health insurance hospital list is provided at the time of purchasing the policy. You need to fill an authorization form provided by the hospital authority or TPA and follow the given formalities in the prescribed form.

      If it is a reimbursement claim, then the insurer has to be informed about the incident and provide the estimate of the expenses incurred. The insured needs to fill and submit a claim form along with the discharge summary, doctor’s prescription, and the medical bills. 

      Important details required for claim intimation are:

      • Royal Sundaram mediclaim policynumber 
      • Name of the hospital 
      • Contact number, email id, residential address, landmark, etc. of the policyholder/applicant
      • Name of the patient or insured who is admitted in the hospital
      • Relationship of policyholder with the patient
      • Nature of illness
      • In case of an accidental hospitalization, details of the accident, date, time, and location are required
      • Starting date of the symptoms of the illness

      Step-Wise Cashless Claim Procedure

      2. In case of an emergency, the TPA should be informed within 24 hours of the hospitalization.

      3. Fill the cashless authorization form provided by the TPA. The TPA will first check the coverage and your eligibility to avail the claim.

      4. Attach all the necessary documents along with the duly filled claim form and submit it to the TPA department. If there is any discrepancy, the TPA will coordinate with you within 4 hours of receiving the form.

      5. Pay the expenses that are not covered in the Royal Sundaram health insurance plan
