Payments for out-of-network providers are made by the patient.

What is covered by the Covid-19 Private Health Insurance Coverage Expenses Insurance?
All health expenses for tourists incurred in any of the pandemic hospitals, whether private or public, arising from hospitalisation due to Covid-19 while traveling in Turkey are covered by this insurance, including intensive care costs. The payment process starts as soon as the Güneş Sigorta authorisation department is contacted, during admission to the hospital.
Under which conditions are claims paid?
For the payment of claims for patients admitted to the hospital or to intensive care with a confirmed diagnosis of Covid-19, the admitting hospital must submit a request to the authorisation department of Güneş Sigorta. If the hospital is a pandemic hospital, but an out-of-network provider, payment is made by the patient.
What is required for payments for out-of-network providers?
Copies of entrance and exit stamps in the passport, a copy of the first page of the passport, the discharge report, doctor’s follow-up forms, and a detailed list of items listed in the invoice and examination results are all required in submitting invoices issued by out-of-network providers for consideration.
