Hospital cash plans are a relatively new form of insurance, but the market is already diverse, with various specialist and major health insurance companies offering a range of different products. The benefits and limitations of your hospital cash plan will depend on the cost and provider.
Hospital Cash Plans are designed to pay the policyholder a lump sum for each day he or she needs treatment as an in-patient in either an NHS or private hospital. This sum is tax-free. Depending on the type of policy and the level of cover, hospital cash plans can also include dental cover and other benefits.

Are they gonna pay a fixed amount for each day that the insured is treated? Or would such payment vary depending on the nature of treatment?

Don't expect a response from Milfordct whose post you quote. He/she copies the information from other websites and gets paid for dropping it here. When he/she writes anything original, you cannot understand it.
The post above from which you quote, comes from a UK-based website, and has little in common with the US.
Hospital "income indemnity" plans sold in the US pay when a person is admitted to the hospital, as detailed in the policy (it could be limited to accidental injuries only, in which case, being hospitalized for a heart attack would not be a covered event).
Other policies, such as "specified" (or "dread") disease policies which provide benefits when a person is diagnosed with cancer, HIV/AIDS, etc, provide listed ("scheduled") benefits depending on the treatment or services the insured requires. Not exactly the same thing as a "hospital indemnity income" policy. But similar.
