Why would you want to, it didn't cost you anything did it?

We were able to claim for one night after DD had a horrendous accident and it came quite quickly though it was a while after the stay that we applied. We used it for a treat for DD.

five - that is what insurance is for.

because i pay per month for health insurance

i dont mean claiming it from the NHS, i mean claiming it back from my health insurance company . They offer this because by me not going to a private hospital it saves the insurance company lots of money, so they let you claim a certain amount per night for NOT going private

Yes, for getting treatment privately not for treatment that didn't cost you anything, obviously I am being very thick and missing the point and shall leave.

ok so there isn't a time limit that you have to get the forms in by or anything?

thats a good idea Lockets. they have a baby charity attached to the hospital. I read the leaflet while i was in there. I am going to put some in ds's savings soon as it was his suffering that has enabled me to claim
