What is an Insurance Health Card? Here’s How Onsurity Made it Easy to Access

Your Onsurity Plus membership is a comprehensive employee healthcare plan. That means you get access to a wide-range of health benefits, one of which could be health insurance, through our partnered insurance company. To take advantage of your health insurance, you need to have an insurance health card. 

Your digital insurance health card lives right inside your Onsurity app. That means you can easily view and share the card at any time. If you haven’t yet downloaded the Onsurity App, you should do so. The Onsurity application is available for both Android and iOS. Through this blog, we will tell you what a health card is, and how to access yours through the app.  

What is an Insurance Health Card? 

When you get a health insurance plan, you get a health card alongside. Sometimes this is a physical card, like your ATM card. With an Onsurity membership though, you get a fully-digital card that can be downloaded as a PDF. 

Think of this card as proof of your health insurance cover with our Insurance Partner. It has all your details recorded with the insurance company – your name, membership ID, card ID, gender and validity date. You need your membership ID  to file a claim or to get cashless treatment. 

The card makes it easier for the hospital’s Third Party Administrator (TPA) desks to verify your health insurance plan, and contact the insurance company. Thus, it is very important to have this card available with you, as you will not be able to claim insurance without it. That’s why your Onsurity membership has a virtual health card that is easily and always accessible.  

Remember you will have to present this card at the TPA desk of the hospital whenever you get hospitalised and claim health insurance. It’s wise to have the Onsurity app downloaded the moment you get your membership. That way, all you have to do is open the app at the hospital. No searching, no confusion!
