Supplementary health insurance

 Supplementary medical insurance is a type of additional insurance coverage to the basic insurance. Supplementary health insurance covers the costs of various medical services such as hospitalization, outpatient surgery, and even severe diseases such as cancer or heart attack up to the specified coverage limit in the insurance policy. On the other hand , the supplementary treatment insurance policy includes some costs of medical and treatment services that are not covered by the basic insurance (such as dental and vision costs).

Additional treatment insurance inquiry 

Inquiring about supplementary medical insurance is necessary in the following conditions:

Inquiring about the authenticity of supplementary medical insurance to know about the validity of the insurance policy by referring to the Sanhab system of the Central Insurance Organization

Inquiring about the price of additional medical insurance to compare the coverage and price of additional insurance in different insurance companies by referring to the price inquiry and purchase page on the Ezki website.

Types of supplementary insurance

Supplementary medical insurance is provided in the form of different plans. Supplementary insurances are categorized as follows:

Individual supplementary insurance

Group supplementary insurance

Supplementary family insurance

Individual supplementary insurance

Individual supplementary insurance is a type of single and separate health insurance policy that is issued only for one person. Everyone can get additional insurance by having basic insurance. Individual supplementary insurance includes all group supplementary insurance coverages. Only the price of individual supplementary insurance is higher than group or organizational supplementary insurance. Of course, the amount of individual supplemental treatment insurance premium depends on the limit of selected obligations of the insurance policy and the type of coverage, and the higher the limit of obligations we choose, the higher the amount of individual insurance premium.

In addition, this organization provides additional individual social security insurance for the retirees of the social organization.

Supplementary family insurance

Family supplementary insurance is actually the same individual supplementary insurance that a person can simultaneously cover himself and his family members under a medical insurance policy. If the head of the household does not have additional insurance from the workplace, he can buy additional family insurance and insure his wife, children, and even his parents.

group supplementary insurance (organization)

All companies, workshops and all types of work environments can buy group or organizational supplementary medical insurance for their personnel and employees. Premiums for group supplementary insurance are lower than individual supplementary insurance policies. At the time of purchasing supplementary organizational insurance , the employer himself chooses the type, number of coverages and also the limit of obligations for his personnel. In addition, the insured can cover their dependents such as first-degree family members (father, mother, spouse and children) under the organizational supplementary insurance.

Types of supplementary medical insurance coverage

Depending on the type of insurance policy and the conditions of individual or family supplementary insurance, the coverage of each supplementary health insurance is different. In general, the list of supplementary medical insurance covers are:

Benefits of supplementary medical insurance 

The payment share of basic insurances such as social security insurances or medical services for covered medical and treatment expenses is usually at most 30%. But in most cases, the cost of treatment and diagnostic work, even a test or a simple CT scan, is very high. Many clinical, laboratory and paraclinical services are practically not covered by basic insurance. The main advantage of supplementary treatment insurance is the maximum compensation of the cost of medical and hospital work. This insurance policy compensates almost all or at least a large part of medical expenses.

Individual and family supplementary insurance conditions

Issuance of individual and family supplementary insurance has the following conditions:

The age of the main insured should be at least 18 years and at most 70 years.

The insured must have basic insurance such as social security insurance or medical services. (Of course, some companies, such as Saman Insurance, issue individual supplementary insurance without basic insurance, but in this case, the premium for supplementary treatment is higher.)

Male children up to the age of 22 and female children up to the age of 18 can be covered by supplementary family insurance. Of course, unmarried girls over 18 years old and boys over 22 years old who are studying are still considered dependent on their parents.

Calculating the cost of additional insurance 

The price of supplementary insurance is calculated based on the number of requested coverages and the limit of selected obligations of the insurance policy. That is, the higher the number of insurance policy covers and the higher the payment of obligations, the higher the cost of additional insurance. On the other hand, insurance premiums are higher for older people. For example, the cost of individual supplementary insurance for people aged 60 to 70 and also between 71 and 80 years old is added with different percentages.

Most insurance companies have different plans for supplementary insurance that have different types of coverage and limits of obligations.

Medical insurance deductible

The amount of medical insurance deductible is calculated between 10 and 30 percent according to the conditions of the insurance policy. That is, the share of the insured will be 10 to 30 percent of the medical expenses, and the insurance company will pay 70 to 90 percent of the cost. If the insured has basic insurance, the basic insurer will pay 30% of his deductible. Otherwise, the franchise share will be deducted from him.

Additional insurance premium payment

The supplementary insurance premium can be paid in one go or in installments of six, eight or twelve months from receipt.

Payment of supplementary medical insurance

To receive damages from supplementary insurance, we can act in two ways:

To perform medical services in the centers of our supplementary insurance contract:

In these centers, there is no need to pay for testing or taking a CT scan photo, etc., and we only need to declare the insured's national code to the reception of the contracting party's medical center. Of course, sometimes some centers ask for a letter of introduction from the supplementary insurance company.

Refer to the non-contracting centers:

In these centers, we have to pay the cost ourselves first and then get the cost from the insurance company. Of course, we must deliver the invoice of the treatment costs along with the original certificate and doctor's order, the original images of radiography, ultrasound, angiography, etc. to the insurance company. In fact, we must inform the insurance company of the cost of the services performed at most 5 to 10 days after receiving medical services.
