Remember to keep copies of all your medical expenses receipts related to your hospital stay: not just costs during your hospital stay, but also before and after (known as outpatient costs).
Your hospitalisation insurance will reimburse you for medical services, such as pharmacy and doctor's fees, within a certain period of time before you're admitted. The period covered is 1 or 2 months, depending on your policy; this can be found under the special terms of your insurance. IIf you cannot find this and you are insured through your employer, you can also log in to MyAG Employee Benefits or check with your HR department.
Your hospitalisation insurance will reimburse your hospital bill. If you have the Medi-Assistance third-party payer agreement, AG will receive the admission bill and pay it directly to the hospital. However, it is still important for you to report your hospital stay to AG in advance.
In other cases, the bill will be sent to you and you may submit it along with your other medical expenses. Please still submit the declaration in advance, and we'll open a case. This makes it easier to process the expenses if you send them later.
You may receive treatment after, just like before, your hospital stay to help you get better as quickly as possible. Your hospitalisation insurance will reimburse you for these medical services within a certain period of time after you're discharged. This is 3 or 6 months, depending on your policy.
Keep all invoices and receipts from your hospital, doctor(s), pharmacy, etc. safe. !
