Non-medical hospital expenses

Health insurance policies typically exclude costs associated with an accompanying partner during a hospital stay, as well as non-medical consumables such as food and catering, and media-related expenses such as pay-per-view television or internet access. This exclusion applies to both inpatient and outpatient treatments and is intended to focus the coverage on medical expenses directly related to the treatment or recovery of the insured individual. It’s important to note that some hospitals may offer these services complimentary as part of their standard patient care package, but any additional or premium services will likely not be covered by the insurance policy.
