Out-Patient Treatment

Out-patient treatment is treatment received in a doctor's office and does not require admission to a hospital bed.
Outside the USA

Out-patient services and treatment received outside the USA are required to be paid by you at the time of treatment. After paying for your treatment you should submit a claim form to be processed. To ensure prompt settlement of these expenses, please make sure to take your claim form with you in order for it to be completed by the treating general practitioner, specialist or dental practitioner.

Exceptions may be made for high cost procedures. In this case you will be required to contact us prior to receiving your treatment, in order for us to arrange direct payment with the medical facility concerned. Please note that not all medical facilities will accept direct payment. In these instances you will be required to settle the bill and submit a claim for reimbursement.

Providing all relevant information is submitted to support your claim, we will reimburse you accordingly by the payment method of your choice. Please clearly state your preferred payment method on your claim form. Where this is by bank transfer, clearly state the name of your bank, account number and SWIFT (or IBAN) code. Provided all required information is present, eligible claims will be reimbursed in fifteen (15) working days.
Inside the USA

Some policies allow for treatment to be undertaken in the USA. Please check your program‘s schedule of benefits to ensure that you have the appropriate coverage before undertaking any treatment within the USA.

Where your policy allows, out-patient services and treatment received within Aetna’s provider network can be billed to us directly. In most cases, you will be required to show your membership card to the provider who will contact us to confirm direct billing. This may not immediately happen and, should you be asked to pay for the treatment please ensure you state clearly to the facility that you wish to have your bill settled directly by us, and for them to contact the number on the reverse of your membership card.

In the unlikely event that you are still required to pay your bill, please follow the steps as outlined in the ‘Outside the USA’ section above.

Our claims department will process the claim according to the applicable portion payable by us taking into account your excess and any co-insurance applicable. Once our portion is paid, we will send both you and the provider an ‘Explanation of Benefits’ (EOB) with details of settlement and a statement of what you are responsible for.

Claim Form Note

Please note that any charges that may be made by an attending medical practitioner for completing your claim form are not eligible for reimbursement under the terms and conditions of the policy and you will be responsible for settling these costs.

Where it is not possible to have the claim form completed by the medical practitioner, specialist or dental practitioner, we will accept the claim for assessment provided your receipt(s) for treatment include the date of service, the diagnosis of your medical condition, the treatment provided, the amount charged and the stamp of the facility concerned.

To ensure prompt settlement of any eligible claims please ensure that you submit all necessary documents at the time of the claim. We accept copies of original receipts for claim processing and to facilitate the assessment of your claim, however do keep your originals properly as we may require them under certain circumstances. When submitting claims via email, please adhere to the procedure stated on this link.

Note: Should a member make a claim and receive reimbursement, their NCB discount will revert to a level two years below their current level at their next renewal. However, if their reimbursement exceeds US$10,000 (for claims within US) or US$25,000 (for claims outside US) the NCB discount will drop all the way down to the standard premium, i.e., no discount.

General Claims Information

We reserve the right to reject any claim which is not submitted within 90 days of the date of treatment. All documents and materials (including, but not limited to original accounts, certificates and x-rays) that we require to support a claim, shall be provided without expense to us (including, if requested by us, a medical report from your medical practitioner or specialist and details of your medical history).

In cases where medical information is required by us for consideration of a claim, but it is not made available to us, it is your responsibility to obtain such information from your current or previous medical practitioner, as appropriate. Claims may only be made for treatment actually given during a Period of Cover and benefit will be available only for expenditure incurred prior to expiry or termination of such cover.

An insured person must, without delay, give us written notification of any claim or right of action against any third party arising out of circumstances which gave rise to a claim under this policy and must continue to keep us fully informed in writing and take all steps we reasonably require in making a claim upon that other party. We shall be entitled to take legal action in any insured person's name for our own benefit and claim for indemnity or damages or otherwise which relates to any benefits and costs paid or payable under this policy.
