New cut off dates to claim back for Care Funding

Thu 10th May 2012

Under the current NHS Continuing Care legislation it is possible to claim retrospectively for Continuing Care funding. However, the NHS has now issued cut off dates which are as follows: These deadlines are for cases during the period 1 April 2004 to 31 March 2012. If you think you or someone you know might be eligible for NHS Continuing Healthcare, but where there are un-assessed periods of care, get in touch with your local Primary Care Trust. The time periods and the deadlines for getting in touch with your Primary Care Trust are as follows:

  • For care given from 1 April 2004 to 30 September 2007, the deadline is 30 September 2012
  • For care given from 1 October 2007 to 31 March 2011, the deadline is 30 September 2012
  • For care given from 1 April 2011 to 31 March 2012, the deadline is 31 March 2013.

Some cases may be accepted after the dates outlined above, if there are exceptional circumstances for doing do.
