Step-by-step overview

We understand that a long-term care event can be a difficult time for our claimants and their family members. Our goal is to make the claims process as easy as possible. The following provides a high-level overview of the typical claims process from initiation to reimbursement. 

Determining Benefit Eligibility – first we need to make sure that the insured meets the benefit eligibility requirements, as defined in the policy.

Establishing Provider Eligibility – once benefit eligibility has been established, we need to verify that the service provider you are using meets the requirements defined in the policy.

Satisfying the Elimination Period – almost like an insurance deductible, there is a set period of time (defined in the policy) that the insured must cover the costs of care before claim payments can begin.

Benefit Reimbursement – the insured will submit bills for the services they received, and we will send out reimbursements accordingly.

Take a look at our Process Overview for a more detailed summary.
