4. Who can claim expenses

Claims may be made by the Parents of:

  • A baby resident in a Neonatal Unit on or after 1st April 2018.
  • A baby who has been in Neonatal care up until day of discharge
  • A baby who has been in Neonatal Care who is then moved to another unit for on-going treatment e.g. PICU or Cardiology ward. The cut off point for claiming from NEF will be 44 weeks corrected (28 days/4 weeks after birth date for term babies and 4 weeks after due date for babies born early). This time period defines the end of the neonatal period.
