Claim procedure

  1. Intimation & Assistance - In case of planned hospitalization, select and approach the service desk of the chosen network hospital, preferably at least 2 days in advance. Use your ICICI Lombard Health card for identification purpose. You can also share your policy no and passport no with the healthcare provider or use your PAN card or voter ID card for the same.

  2. Pre-authorization: Get the pre-authorization form (available at the hospital help desk and/or ICICI Lombard website), filled and signed from the treating doctor and submit the same with the hospital along with other necessary documents. The network hospital checks the identity of the Insured for validation and submits the pre-authorization form to the Insurer. After cross verifying the identity of the Insured and the policy coverage, the Insurer will provide confirmation to the provider by e-mail/fax and also inform the Insured by way of a text message.

  3. Cashless settlement: Get admitted for treatment at the network hospital and sign all forms, invoices and documents on discharge. ICICI Lombard will directly make the payment to the hospital for pre-approved treatment and as per policy terms & conditions. Any non-medical expense and/or expenses towards conditions not authorized under hospitalization need to be paid directly by the beneficiary of treatment. Also, remember signing the ICICI Lombard claims form and hand it over to the hospital along with all the relevant supporting documents.

*Please note in case of emergency, authorization should be taken not later than 24 hrs of admission.
