Frequently asked questions about Hospital Cash Cover

What is hospital cash coverage?

Hospital cash coverage is part of the features and benefits offered by health insurance companies. It is basically a daily cash allowance provided to the insurance holder while the person is admitted to a hospital. It is beneficial for those who get daily wages and are likely to be affected due to absence at work for reasons like hospitalisation.

The amount is specified while issuing the insurance policy. For instance, an individual will receive Rs. 1,000/day of hospitalisation if the person has chosen a plan with this benefit. This financially supports them to meet their daily medical expenses at the hospital.

The amount obtained from the hospital cash cover can be utilised to meet additional hospital expenses such as surgical accessories, room rent, X-ray charges etc.

What is the difference between hospitalisation coverage and hospital cash cover?

Hospitalisation coverage defines where the insurance provider offers medical coverage to the policyholder. It financially covers medical expenses for surgeries, daycare procedures, etc. With a hospitalisation cover, you can get reimbursement on medical costs or cashless treatment.

On the other hand, hospital cash insurance offers a fixed sum insured for each day hospitalisation of more than 24-hour. It is an amount paid to the policyholder to meet various expenses during the hospitalisation period. This daily cash benefit in health insurance helps you meet inadmissible expenses during hospitalisation.

Why should one choose hospital cash insurance?

Individuals can conveniently pay for the medical expenses not covered under a health insurance plan with a daily hospital cash policy. Under this daily cash policy, individuals are offered a certain amount of cash for each day during the hospitalisation tenor. The amount is specified while opting for the policy. Although, as already mentioned, the health insurance plan does not cover most of the expenses during hospitalisation, the inadmissible expenses, such as surgical accessories, expenses incurred by patient’s family members, X-ray charges, etc., can be met with this daily cash policy.

Under the hospital cash plan, the policyholder receives a cash allowance of Rs. 1,000/day to meet necessary expenses. One can avail of this benefit without providing any supporting bill. The number of days for this benefit will vary across the insurance provider.

What is the benefit of taking a daily hospital cash benefit?

By purchasing an insurance policy with a hospital cash benefit from leading insurance providers like Bajaj Finserv, individuals can conveniently take care of the additional expenses that are not covered under a comprehensive health insurance policy.

  • Individuals can use the amount per their requirements, and the concerned insurance company reimburses the standard amount.
  • Individuals can ask for a No Claim Bonus under this benefit if the amount is negligible and enjoy their main insurance policy benefit.
  • Proposers can also claim tax deductions under Section 80D against health insurance.
