FILING TIPS – LONG TERM CARE CLAIMS

3502430_sHave a Long Term Care claim?  Think it’s going to be a slam dunk?

THINK AGAIN!

Unless you know exactly how to word your claim, approval could be a long journey and even denied.  So what can you do to help prepare for receiving these benefits?  Here are some suggestions:

  • Review your policy to assess the criteria and requirements used for approval of claims.  Share this criteria with your healthcare providers.
  • Make sure you answer the claim questions succinctly without embellishment.
  • Review you medical records prior to claim submission.  Does your doctor’s documentation accurately reflects your current condition and need for long term care.
  • Keep a diary of your disease or injury including the assistance and care provided by professional caregivers, friends and family members.

Good luck!
