Martin Lewis: care home fees on ITV Daybreak

It is positive that Martin is highlighting the availability of continuing healthcare finding, and explaining it to the public, who are often completely unaware of its existence.

Compass CHC comments on this video by Martin Lewis, of www.moneysavingexpert.com on ITV's "This Morning".

It is positive that Martin and the media are highlighting the availability of continuing healthcare finding, and explaining it to the public, who are often completely unaware of its existence and the entitlement to it to meet the cost of care. The interview is centred on recovering fees already paid and mentions certain deadlines. At Compass CHC we specialise in both securing a retrospective recovery of fees that have been paid that shouldn't have been, but additionally securing funding on an ongoing basis so there are no further care costs to pay. We aim to secure funding from day one to meet the cost of care.

Martin has mentioned in the article certain deadlines for recovery of costs. Whilst he is correct these deadlines only relate to past recovery of fees, not fees being incurred on an ongoing basis. Additionally if fees have been paid in the last 12 to 24 months that shouldn't have been it is still possible to recover them. As such, don't delay, contact us today for a free, no obligation discussion, confidential discussion with one of our experts. Compass Continuing Healthcare - Navigating you to free care.
