Stabilisation of chronic episode

TOB-Glossary-Medical-Insurance-Stabilisation-of-chronic-episode

Stabilization of chronic episode refers to the coverage provided by insurance policies for the treatment of acute exacerbations or flare-ups of chronic conditions. These episodes occur when an individual’s chronic condition suddenly worsens and requires additional medical attention.

For example, someone with asthma may experience a chronic episode of wheezing and difficulty breathing that requires hospitalization. Or someone with diabetes may experience a chronic episode of high blood sugar requiring emergency treatment.

These episodes can be costly, and it’s important to check with your insurance provider to verify coverage for stabilization of chronic episodes. It’s important to note that this coverage may be separate from monitoring and maintenance of chronic conditions, and it’s always best to check with your insurance provider for the specific coverage and limitations.
