Why Was My Long-Term Care Insurance Claim Denied?

Long-term care insurance policies are designed to help individuals cover the costs of long-term care services, including those received in a nursing home, assisted living facility, or in-home care.

Important Take Aways for Long Term Care Claims

Long-term care insurance policies require that claimants meet certain criteria before benefits are payable. Typically, you must meet the definition of chronically ill as defined by the long-term care insurance policy in order to qualify for long-term care benefits.

What does it mean to be chronically ill?

Generally, there are two ways you can meet the definition of chronically ill:

  1. You are unable to perform a certain number of activities of daily living (ADLs) without assistance;
    1. Activities of daily living can include:
      1. Eating;
      2. Bathing;
      3. Continence;
      4. Dressing;
      5. Toileting; or
      6. Transferring
  1. Significant cognitive impairments make it so you require supervision to protect you or others from threats to health and safety.
