Hi j,

This would come under 'medication' which is covered in a different section. 'Therapy' would include things like physio, breathing exercises, tube feeding etc

Sorry to contradict :) but this would come under Managing Treatments, they will have to explain why there condition prevent them from dealing with these issues on their own.

Do they still send PIP1 forms completed at the initial phone interview back to you to check and sign? I thought that they just sent a PIP2 after the telephone claim call?

Just to add to previous message how long do they give you to send the PIP 1 copy back to them before they close your claim?
