Like all travel insurance policies, the billing process is at the discretion of the provider. It depends on the billing practices of the provider the insured person chooses to visit. Usually for bigger medical situations (like hospitalization, surgery, etc.), providers tend to charge the insurance companies directly. For smaller situations, like doctor’s consultations, they sometimes ask the insured person for upfront payment first, which can be reimbursed. For claims to be processed, the insured person would need to send in the claimant information form and the bills (if they have to pay up front) to the insurance company. You can find out more about the claim process here.
