If you or a family member requires assistance with certain day-to-day tasks, you may be entitled to long-term care benefits. This type of insurance coverage comes in many different forms. Some people have long-term care coverage through an employer-backed plan that is regulated by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). Other people have long-term care coverage through an individual plan that was purchased on the private market.
Regardless of which type of plan you have, obtaining benefits can be a challenge. At Bartolic Law, our dedicated Winnetka long-term care lawyers help beneficiaries recover their full benefits. We know that the big insurance companies do not always play by the rules. If your long-term care claim was rejected or underpaid in Cook County, Illinois, please contact a member of our law firm today to get immediate assistance with your case.
Under Illinois state regulations, your insurance company is required to send a written explanation of their decision regarding your long-term care claim. Hopefully, this letter will be an acceptance of your claim, and it will simply describe the terms for how you can access your full benefits.
