FAX Claims FAQs

4.2 What documents are needed to apply for the fax-claim service?

 These are the documents needed

  • Your Policyholder ID Card, or your ID Card

  • Your signature on the HM Fax-Claim Application Form

4.3 If the policyholder is eligible to make claims from other health providers, will he/she still be eligible to use the fax-claim?
  • If the policyholder chooses to use our fax-claim service as a first choice, he/she will be issued a copy of the receiptfor expenses incurred for the treatment and the original receipt will be sent to us, as payer of your coverage. If there are any balances, the policyholder will have to settle this amount directly with the hospital and he/she will be issued the original receipt for this difference. This original receipt can be used to file claims from other insurers, social welfare, etc.

  • If the policyholder has health insurance with other insurance providers and chooses to use the fax-claim service of the other insurance providers first, he/she may then use the copies of these receipts along with copiesof the hospital documents (expense details, claim form, doctor’s certificate and the claimant’s ID card) to file for his/her HM claims from Prudential. Prudential’s HM rider is a long-term health insurance rider that pays a specific sum as stated in the policy. It does not pay for the treatment’s actual expense. By choosing to use other health insurance that the customer may have before using Prudential’s HM health rider, the customer will gain the maximum benefit as he/she will be able to claim from both sources.
