Oklahoma City Lawyers: Long-Term Care Insurance Denial
Long-term care insurance plans typically pay some or all of the costs of nursing home care for people who become disabled or chronically ill over a long period of time.
Some people claim long-term care insurance benefits for just a few months to help them recover after a surgery or serious illness. Benefits can also be used in cases of cognitive impairment and inability to carry out the tasks of daily living.
The Tawwater Law Firm: Legal Help in LTC Insurance Denial
Whether you or your loved one needs nursing home care out of medical necessity or for other reasons, you expect long-term care insurance benefits to be there when you need them. Sadly, the disabled, the sick and the elderly often find that their valid claims for benefits are denied.
A Matter of Interpretation
Long-term care insurance disputes often involve an interpretation of the policy language. The insurance company may deny coverage because it says the nursing home or assisted living facility does not have the proper staff. For example, the policy may require 24-hour care by an RN, but the nursing home you have selected has LPNs on duty overnight.
