To make a choice
The paid services in the hospital are provided after conclusion of the contract with the insurance company (if the hospital business – that, by the institution). The insurance company must have a contract with a medical facility for such services. The representatives of the insurers should be in the hospital, there is a contract. Although it so happens that the insurance contracts at birth, it concludes, but the representative in the hospital has not. This variant is worse (although cheaper), because for all questions you can feel free to contact the representative of the insurer. And the place to do it easier and faster.
