Assessment

A determination of physical and/or medical status by a health professional based on established medical guidelines. The assessment is a central component in home care coverage's and the payment of home care claims. Upon the triggering of benefits, due either to the loss of some number or activities of daily living or a cognitive impairment, an assessment is performed by a multidisciplinary team. This "team" usually spearheaded by the insured's physician, determines the level of functional incapacity and develops a plan of care that will be followed in assisting the insured in the performing the ADLs and IADLs (instrumental activities of daily living).
