OR Fill in an Advance Request Form with the help of your attending physician, including the name of the medical facility, planned admission date and full breakdown of estimated cost and send it to email@example.com. Your Advance Request Form can be found on your Online Portal.
Step 2: APRIL will assess your request.

REQUESTING PRE-APPROVAL FOR PLANNED SURGERIES IS COMPULSORY. IF YOU DON’T REQUEST PRE-APPROVAL, WE MAY APPLY A 20% CO-PAYMENT ON YOUR MEDICAL EXPENSES.

Why is pre-approval compulsory?
With APRIL, you are not obliged to consult a particular doctor or go to a particular hospital. You are free to choose your own doctor or the hospital where you want to be treated.
However, if you have a serious health problem, our experts will always look at each individual case. The local experience of our medical teams means we are able to make the best possible assessment of the treatment plans and rates offered by healthcare providers to ensure the treatments being proposed are appropriate and medically required and that they are in line with the usual and customary rates in the region.
