The hospital, then, submits all necessary documents to TPA. TPA processes the bill on the basis of eligibility and actual cost. TPA makes the claim payment to the hospital and / or patient (as per the policy terms and actual cost).

Generally the TPA only approves a part of the expenses of the treatment and only after the hospital sends the final bill along with the discharge summary and other reports does it approve the entire amount. Sometimes the hospitals will request the TPA to increase the amount approved if needed during the treatment.

In an emergency hospitalization, the important thing is to get the patient treatment at the earliest. The Corporate Help Desk will take up your case on a fast track basis with your TPA during any working day.
