As per the guidelines of ESI https://www.esic.nic.in/attachments/files/faq.pdf:

The insured person and his family are entitled to the Medical Benefit from the very first day of his/her joining the insurable employment. A person who is just covered under the scheme for the first time is eligible for primary and secondary medical care for self and family for three months.
If he/she continues in insurable employment for three months or more, the benefit is admissible until the beginning of the corresponding benefit period. If the insured person is in ESI coverage for at least 2 years from the date of Online Registration, contributed for not less than 156 days and IP is eligible for Sickness Benefit in any one of the contribution period and is suffering from any of the 34 specified long term diseases, the medical benefit is admissible till the incapacity lasts or up to 730 days during a period of 3 years for self and family.

If the hospital still denies the services, a complaint can be filed with the grievance cell of ESIC in their portal at http://www.esic.in/web/esic/lodge-a-grievance
