“Hospital Confinement” means the admission and confinement of the Life Insured (or the Covered Family Member, where applicable) as an in-patient in a Hospital upon recommendation of a Registered Medical Practitioner for the treatment of a Disability provided that the Life Insured (or the Covered Family Member, where applicable) must be admitted in the Hospital as an in-patient for a minimum of 6 hours and continuously Stay in the Hospital thereafter prior to the Discharge of the Life Insured (or the Covered Family Member, where applicable), which incurs a charge for daily room and board of Hospital room or Intensive Care Unit.
