Below are the basic steps followed when submitting a claim.
1. First, explain to us the nature of your claim so we can gain a thorough understanding of your situation.
2. If you haven't yet seen a doctor, make sure you do so.
3. We then assess whether the claim is likely to meet a definition of a “claimable event” - we do so in consultation of your insurer before submitting any paperwork.
4. Once the claim is confirmed as valid, we formally inform the insurer of the claim on your behalf.
5. The insurer will usually provide a claim pack which contains a claim form, as well as helpful information for you to gain a greater understanding of the process.
6. We will assist you in completing the claim form (or your next of kin, or Power of Attorney).
7. We will submit the claim form to your insurer on your behalf along with any additional documentation required.
