Group medical insurance plans - inpatient benefits:
Similar to the international health insurance policy, Group
healthcare offers multiple levels of coverage.
The first level coverage for Group medical insurance plan would be
hospitalization (or inpatient) which pays for related medical fees in case
This would typically cover for the hospital and clinic room when you
(or your spouse/children within your policy) are hospitalized.
Additionally, it would also include the corresponding treatment.
Group medical insurance Inpatient plans cover hospital daycare services as
well, ranging from medication costs, medical examination (MRIs, CT scans,
x-rays, and a host of laboratory tests...) plus prescribe medication.
Surgery is usually grouped within hospitalization benefits, it doesn't
matter if it is inpatient surgery or not.
Group health insurance plans - outpatient
Group healthcare products include coverage for outpatient services.
Group outpatient health insurance would usually take care of the
medical fee in association with your consultation with GPs or specialists.
Your dependents will be on the coverage as well in the case of
prescribe medication. The Group
health insurance benefits are further extended to include medical and lab
tests such as MRIs, x-rays, CT scans... More and more complimentary
medicines have been included as options to basic medical insurance plan for
Groups and some of these are psychiatric treatment, Homeopathy,
Chiropractor, and acupuncture.
Group Health Insurance Plan - Maternity
Generally healthcare providers will only provide benefits related to
maternity in the form of optional coverage and its coverage would come with
waiting periods - the length of time would vary across healthcare providers.
Some examples of maternity coverage are pre-delivery test, diagnostic
test, or complications.
Additional coverage could be made available for post-delivery or new-born
Group Health Insurance Plan - Dental Care
The healthcare industry broadly divides dental benefits into "routine
dental" or "major dental treatment".
However, different medical insurance policy may carry different terms
on dental benefits, so your coverage could be either just one or both of
them. Paradontics or
Orthodontics treatment is typically considered as "major dental treatment".
Similar to maternity benefits, there is also an associated waiting
period for dental benefits.
