We know and we understand how difficult it is to get medical treatment, difficult and definitely expensive. We at Digit, do everything possible to make your life easier in such situations.
What is Cashless Health Insurance?
Cashless Health Insurance provides coverage for medical expenses such as critical illness expenses, surgical expenses, hospital expenses, etc. to the policyholder without having the insured pay from his/her own pocket. Imagine, your loved one needs immediate surgical treatment and you find it difficult to arrange funds. How stressful this situation can be, but if you have cashless health insurance you can easily get away with this situation and spend quality time with your loved one instead of running around for funds. The only thing you need to do is, take prior approval of the TPA (Third-Party Administrator).
The insurance company has hospitals across India on their panel, and the insured can get treatment in a hospital that is in the insurer’s panel and claim a cashless treatment. You can either plan hospitalization and claim the amount in advance or in case of emergency you can initiate the claim within 24 hours.
At Digit, we give you ‘Daily Hospital Cash Cover’. If you have this cover, you can manage the hospital bills without any stress. And yes, we also have ‘long hospitalization cash cover’ which is equally important and beneficial. So, give priority to your health and we will deal with the hospital. What say?

Difference between Cashless Claim and Reimbursement Claim

The Insurance company will directly pay for your hospital expenses and you get a hassle-free medical treatment.
The insured has to pay all the bills from his/her pocket and can claim reimbursement from the insurance company.
Prior approval needs to be taken.
No prior approval is required.
