If you or a relative are in a nursing or care home because of physical or mental health needs, you may be paying fees that should have been funded by the NHS.
Contact us to see if you are eligible to claim for reimbursement of fees. Remember, claims can be brought on behalf of a living relative or on behalf of the Estate of a deceased relative.
Please note, deadlines for requesting reviews of fees paid have recently been introduced!
The deadlines to make a claim for NHS continuing care to cover the cost of nursing care fees are:
- 30 September 2012 if you should have been assessed between 1 April 2004 – 31 March 2011
- 31 March 2013 if you should have been assessed between 1 April 2011 – 31 March 2012
These rules only apply to people in England.
At Hayward Baker, our specialist team have brought many claims on behalf of care home residents and their families. Contact us today to see if you or a relative are eligible for NHS Continuing Healthcare and reimbursement of care home fees.
