If my GP/my nursing home has assessed that I have developed disability, why do I still need to visit an accredited GP for assessment?
Not all GPs would have undergone similar rigorous training programme to learn how to assess disability. A trained, accredited severe disability assessor will be able to assess whether you meet the CareShield Life/ElderShield claims criteria of being unable to perform three or more of the six Activities of Daily Living (ADLs).
If you are staying in a nursing home, you may approach your nursing home for assistance to submit the Resident Assessment Form in place of the severe disability assessment.
