Have you overpaid for care fees?
We help people who may have been overcharged for care home fees.
Reclaiming care fees
One year of care fees can cost on average £40,000. When somebody first goes into care there should be an initial assessment to decide the allocation of fees between private or NHS funding. Whilst an initial assessment maybe accurate, with time, many clients experience a decline in their health but, did not get reassessed. If reassessment does not take place this can result in overpayment. With our help, advice and guidance we will start the process to reclaim any overpaid care fees, where possible.

As specialists in the field of reclaiming overpaid care fees it may be possible to go back as far as 2013 and include cases where the client is no longer alive.
