What Is The Criteria For Continuing Healthcare?
The NHS funded care package is not based on a certain diagnosis or illness it is based on the overall care requirements of an individual, and is determined on a case by case basis. If an individual is a UK resident, aged 18 or above who have been assessed as having a primary health requirement.
The funding process includes the initial screening in which the CHC Checklist will be used to provide clarity into whether an individual may be entitled to receive funding. If the individual is deemed as possibly having a case in securing funding, the full Continuing Health care assessment will be completed. During the entire funding process, an individual’s care requirement, the complexity and the interaction between these needs are assessed. The process of securing funding may be difficult to comprehend, although the National Framework for Continuing Health care provides a guideline to individuals, their families as well as health care professional. This Framework provides a clear understanding of the process in which is required to be taken to ensure each claimant receives a fair assessment in determining an individual’s care requirements.
The funding process covers an individual’s 12 care needs and a team of healthcare professionals who are involved in the claimants health needs as well as family members will be able to provide evidence to create a strong case for Continuing Health care.
