FAQs

We are pleased to provide you answers to some of the most commonly asked questions.
Is Nextcare an Insurance Company?

Nextcare is a TPA (Third Party Administrator) and not an Insurance company. Nextcare
specializes in providing complete health insurance management and third party administration services for insurers and other payers of healthcare.

What is a Network Provider?

Network Providers are healthcare facilities (hospitals, clinics, laboratories, pharmacies, etc.) contracted by Nextcare, allowing you to benefit from direct settlement of bills. You can access their services by simply presenting your insurance card or national ID (depending on the country where services are obtained).

How can I find a Hospital, Diagnostic Center, Pharmacy or Doctor?

You may search for a healthcare provider through the Nextcare website www.nextcarehealth.com or through the Mobile App available on Google Play and Apple Store.

  • To see the list of Network Providers applicable for your policy, please log in to MyNextcare application and choose Healthcare Providers section. For more information on how to use the app, you can watch here the tutorial videos.
  • Search for a Healthcare Provider by Name, Country, City, Area, Type and Network
  • You can also locate providers near your home, work or the nearest based on your current location

 

To benefit from your insurance policy, it is advised to visit healthcare providers within your covered network as you will either pay nothing or pay a small percentage of the bill, depending on your policy.

How do I arrange direct settlement for a treatment?

It is advisable that prior to visiting medical facility of your choice, you call and book for an appointment with the respective physician/doctor. We also advise that while booking you confirm with the acceptance of your policy by the physician of your choice.

  • You shall visit your healthcare provider and consult with the physician/specialty doctor
  • Provider will submit the request for the services directly to Nextcare wherever pre-approval is required
  • Nextcare will provide approval directly to the provider within pre-agreed turnaround time
  • Healthcare provider will inform you about the amount that you may need to pay directly to the facility (co-pay, co-insurance, deductible, if applicable, or any non-covered services as per your policy terms and conditions) and will inform you about date and time of further treatment if needed
Can I visit a provider outside my network?

Yes, you can as per your policy terms and conditions. You will be required to pay all bills and then claim only the eligible amount with applicable deductions as per your policy terms and conditions.

  • Please ensure that you pre-notified Nextcare prior to availing the service by calling our care center or sending an email to: membercare@nextcarehealth.com. Once pre-notified, you will receive a ticket number for your reference as per your policy terms and conditions.
  • If you still wish to visit provider outside your network, please download medical form to be filled and stamped in the medical facility of your choice, collect necessary documents, including medical report, itemized bills and original receipts.
  • If you are submitting Reimbursement Claim for the first time, please consult your employer whether your policy is eligible for direct submission to Nextcare or you have to submit Reimbursement Claim through your employer.
