Hospital fails to give cash receipt for the claim? What to do next?



A famous hospital approved by the Govt. of Tamilnadu in Kumbakonam failed to issue the cash receipt for the amount paid for the treatment. They said the claims and reimbursement is not entertained. Instead they gave the details and the amount paid in their letter pad with revenue stamp sticked and sealed and it is signed by the Doctor and doctor’s seal. The insurance company is saying that they need the cash receipt. Kindly help me what to do next.

  1. If you invest Rs 100000/- (Rs 1 Lac) for 25 years in any pension plan, I am assuming that over these long period you will be able to get 12% average rate of return. So at the end of 25 years when you are 60 years old, you will have a kitty of Rs 1,33,33,387/- (Rs 1 crore 33 lacs 33 thousand 3 hundred and 87).

    At that time if you invest this amount in any annuity product for thirty years (which I am assuming you will survive) and also assuming that the prevalent rate of return is 8% then, you will receive an amount of Rs 11,84,370/- annually for next 30 years or a monthly pension of Rs 98,698/- per month.

    These calculations are based on assumptions as stated. I hope you will benefit from this.


  2. AVOID policies from insurance. Insurance is not investment. Instead invest Rs 50,000 in PPF with State Bank and Rs 50,000 in mutual funds via SIP. You will get more than double the pension.


  3. Letter pad with a revenue stamp is more than enough, since Insurance is requesting for cash receipts Get a Authentication letter signed by the Hospital with the Govt seal affixed on it. I feel that will suffix.

    And mention on the letter as cash receipt like how we cross the cheque with Account payee.


  4. the amount written in letter pad,vth revenue stamp & signed by doctor from govt hospital, is considered as a cash receipt & the insurance company has to accept it. Its the fault of insurance company not accepting such,,,,,just wrie CASH RECEIPT” on the head of paper as TITLE,,then see wat happens,,they ll accept it,,
