If you think you or a relative’s care should be funded by the NHS because of a primary healthcare need, please get in touch so we can help.

Your Care Home Funding questions answered

Who can reclaim care home fees?

Fees can only be reclaimed for care provided after 1 April 2012 unless there are exceptional circumstances.

Everyone currently in care who is either paying the full amount or a contribution to their care may be eligible to make a claim, as are the estates of people who were paying towards their care but have passed away since April 2012.

Who is eligible for NHS care home funding?

In a nutshell, the NHS should fund full nursing care for patients with a primary need, regardless of their financial situation. Anyone who needs long-term nursing care, whether in a residential home or not, should have an assessment by the NHS to determine whether they are eligible for continuous healthcare funding.

If you, or a relative, did not have an assessment – or if you disagreed with your assessment outcome – then you do have a right to challenge it.

If nursing needs are incidental to the need for accommodation, then funding is not normally provided by the NHS. It’s a difficult distinction to make, so please contact the team to discuss your individual circumstances.
