1. Call our long-term care specialists right away. Start early so you know in advance what expenses will be covered.

Call toll free to 1-800-275-5101, option 3, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET.

Have this information ready when you call:

  • Policy number(s)
  • The name, address, and phone number of insured’s physician(s)
  • The name, address, and phone number of insured’s long-term care provider(s)
  • Type of service(s) the insured will be receiving (home health care, assisted living, and/or skilled nursing)
  • The first date long-term care services were or will be received
  • Why the insured is receiving long-term care services

After the call, the long-term care specialist will send forms to be completed and returned. We will take care of sending the forms to the physician and care provider.

Attached is a list of these forms and who should complete the form. To expedite the paperwork process, you can download and complete the EFT Authorization, and Power of Attorney Affidavit. Because most of our claim forms are specific to the type of policy you have, the long-term care specialist will send you the remaining forms to ensure correct documentation is completed.

Anyone may initiate a claim on behalf of the insured. To protect the privacy of the insured, OneAmerica can release contract and policy information only to the:

  • policyowner
  • claimant’s validated legal representative; and/or
  • policyowner’s active broker/agent of record (excluding medical information)

Once you register and create a secure mailbox, you will be able to exchange secure e-mails with the companies of OneAmerica.

3. Your long-term care claims specialist reviews your claim. Your specialist works directly with you throughout the review. We cannot complete the review until all the forms and other information from your providers is returned to us.

We will ask your provider for the following:

  • a completed Plan of Care, signed and dated by a licensed health care practitioner
  • the physical and/or mental assessment completed by the provider
  • the completed provider form

If we need additional information before your claim can be approved, we will let you know. Such information can include:

  • Physician and/or hospital records
  • Care provider notes
  • Independent on-site assessment
  • Cognitive testing results

4. Your policy specifies all the requirements that must be met for claim approval. We understand that the process may seem confusing and complicated to you. Call your long-term care claim specialist to discuss those requirements with you any time you wish.

Generally, those requirements are that:

  • the insured is “chronically ill”;
  • the care provider is licensed, and if the state does not license, the provider meets the other policy requirements;
  • the care is provided pursuant to a “plan of care;” and
  • the waiting period has been met.

We can explain the other policy requirements to you as they become relevant or when you have specific concerns or questions.

5. Refer to your policy for a description of what type of care your policy covers, such as home health care or care provided in long-term care facilities, assisted living facilities, or other facilities. You may also call 1-800-275-5101 to discuss your policy benefits with a long-term care claim specialist.

6. Claim approval time varies, depending on how long it takes for the completed forms to be returned. Each claim is unique and depends upon your providers submitting specific and complete information, so we can’t predict with certainty how long the process will take. Your specialist will keep in touch with you throughout the claim review process.

7. Benefits are not payable for long-term care services rendered during the waiting period. The waiting period is listed in your policy.  (Your policy might use the term “elimination period” instead of waiting period.)

8. No. Begin the claims process as soon as you can.

9. Reassessment generally occurs yearly.  If circumstances change then a reassessment may occur more frequently, for instance if the provider or care changes.

10. Contact us before or early in the process of changing providers so that we can determine if the new provider will meet policy requirements. Your long-term care claim specialist will contact the new care provider to gather the needed information.

11. We can work directly with your attorney-in-fact, guardian or conservator once we receive documentation of that person’s status.
