Hospital admission and discharge
If your treatment requires hospital stay, there are procedures for hospital stay according to the department through which the request is made.
Admission in cases of emergency
Hospital stay may be due to a surgery or an emergency medical condition, in this case, it is better for the patient to be accompanied by a family member or a friend as they can help us obtain the private data of the history of the disease and the circumstances surrounding his/her emergency status, that is why it is necessary for them to be there for legal and administrative purposes.
Voluntary admission is prepared for in advance as the patient is admitted to the hospital by choice, if late admission is not life-threatening or until an empty bed is available. This way allows pre-admission examinations, case evaluation, calculation of costs, obtaining approval and schedule an operation room and a bed. The patient can pay in cash or via prepaid card through the insurance company if he/she is insured.
According-to-payment patient categories
Cash-paying patients, the patient or a representative pays a deposit when signing the contract that he is paying for the treatment in cash.
Later-paying patients, this option is available if there is a treatment coverage by the employer or sponsor at Al-Hayat National Hospital, in case he has a valid agreement with the hospital. This category requires approval prior to the patient’s admission.
Patients who pay through insurance, this option is applied when the patient’s hospital treatment is covered by insurance companies which have a valid contract with the hospital. This category also requires prior approval, and information can be obtained from the hospital’s corporate section, the ones that have contract with the hospital.
The patient’s admission through health affairs transference

When a patient is scheduled for stay, there is a number of procedures the hospital does:
First the hospital’s competent employee checks the validity of the insurance and also seeks the approval of the employer, the sponsor or the insurance company to pay for the stay and treatment. The employee will contact the patient or one of his/her relatives if there is any, if there are any queries or issues related to insurance.

If the bill is agreed to be paid by the employer or insurance company and prior approval for admission and treatment has been received, then the hospital demands payment according to these facts. But if the bill is to be paid in cash, the full amount must be paid before discharge. And in case the employer or the insurance company does not pay for certain treatments, then the patient will be directly asked to pay for them the discharge time, as the hospital interfere in these exceptions with the insurance companies nor employers. If the patient wishes to inquire about anything related to the bill, he/she can refer to patient accounting department in the hospital’s main lobby.
