The reasoning of the insurance companies is that the first argument of the insurers is that they cannot decide whether the patient needs to be admitted or not, which gives rise to the possibility of "several types of fraud" such as improper charge.

Insurance companies say that CALs range from Rs 2 lakh to Rs 8 lakh, but in insurance contracts pay only that which is borne by the insured.
