What kind of other functional assessment tools will be considered for CareShield Life/ElderShield assessments?
The Government is looking into how to recognise functional assessment tools which are well-recognised and commonly used in the healthcare and long-term care sectors, for example the Resident Assessment Form, the Modified Barthel Index and the Functional Independence Measure. To ensure that gatekeeping remains robust, these tools should be sufficiently detailed, such that an appropriate threshold for admitting claims can be mapped to the ElderShield claims criterion of severe disability.
