Edelweiss General Insurance (EGI) has announced the launch of an “out-of-network cash advance” facility to assist customers with monetary support at any hospital that is not part of EGI’s network. Usually, one would have to pay out of one’s own pocket to get treatment at out-of-network hospitals. However, under the new ‘Cash Advance’ facility, clients will be provided with cash up to Rs. 10,000 to cover admission fees or other expenses during hospitalization. The advance is then adjusted at the time of the disaster, specifies the cabinet.
