Planned hospitalization is when you plan treatment in advance. In this case, inform the TPA at least three days before admission for authorization. Get admitted. While getting discharged, settle your hospital bills and then, register a claim with the TPA with all the original bills, documents, reports and receipts for processing and reimbursement along with the claim form. If treatment is at a network hospital, you must approach them three days before admission to enable them to request the TPA for authorization of treatment. This is verified by the TPA for eligibility as per policy terms and authorized for cashless treatment.
