TATA AIG’s health insurance claims:

TATA AIG allows you to register your health insurance claims online on its website. Visit the website of the company and choose ‘Claims’. You can, then, register or track your claims and even download claim documents from the website. Once the claim is registered, the company would verify it, assess it and settle your claims.

Health insurance claims can be cashless or through reimbursement. If you want a cashless claim settlement you should take the following steps –

  • Seek treatments in a hospital which is tied-up with TATA AIG. The list of tied-up hospitals can be checked on the company’s website or you can call the company’s customer care helpline and find out the networked hospitals in your area
  • You need to fill and submit a pre-authorization claim form containing the details of your claim. This form is available at the hospital’s TPA desk and you should fill and submit it within the prescribed timeline. In case of emergency hospitalisation, the form is required to be submitted within 24 hours of hospitalisation. In case of planned hospitalisation, however, you should submit the form at least 3-4 days before being hospitalised
  • Based on the pre-authorisation form, the company assesses and approves the claim
  • Once the claim is approved, you can avail cashless treatments. The hospital bills would be directly settled by the company
  • Once you are discharged, submit your medical bills, medical reports and Discharge summary in original to the insurance company with your claim form
  • If, however, you take treatment at a non-networked hospital, you would have to bear the medical costs yourself. Later on, you can file your claim with the insurance company, submit all the relevant documents and you would get reimbursement of the expenses you paid.

FAQ’s

Yes, the co-payment clause is applicable in certain health insurance plans offered by TATA AIG. Under this clause, a percentage of the health insurance claim would be paid by you and the remaining claim would be settled by the insurance company.


Daycare treatments are those which do not require hospitalisation of 24 hours or more. These treatments take a few hours after which you can be discharged because of the advanced medical techniques which are now practised. Daycare treatments are covered under all health insurance plans.


Top-up plans have a concept of deductible up to which no claims are admissible. As soon as any claim exceeds the deductible limit, the excess is then covered under top-up health insurance plans. For instance, suppose, a top-up plan is bought with a sum insured of INR 5 lakhs and a deductible of INR 2 lakhs. A claim of INR 1.9 lakhs would not be covered by the plan because it is below the deductible limit. However, if the claim is for INR 201,000, the excess of INR 1000 would be covered under the top-up plan. Thus, top-up plans cover only those claims which exceed the deductible limit.


Yes, the premiums paid for health insurance plans have tax-saving benefits. The premiums are allowed as a deduction under Section 80D. You can claim a maximum deduction of up to INR 25,000 on the premium you pay for your health insurance. However, for a senior citizen, the 80D limit is INR 50,000 per annum.

So, if you buy a separate plan for your senior citizen dependent parents and pay their premiums, you are eligible for an additional income tax deduction of INR 50,000. Thus, you can claim a deduction of up to INR 50,000 on the premiums you pay for yourself and your family and another INR 50,000 for premiums paid for your dependent parents. This brings the total deduction to up to INR 1 lakh.


Usually, family floater health insurance plans allow coverage only for a spouse, dependent children and dependent parents. However, there are some family floater health plans which allow extended relations to also be covered under the policy. Under such health plans, you can get coverage for your dependent siblings.
