Hi Andrea,

This is correct. Sorry for the confusion, for the purpose of these benefits, someone is considered terminally ill if they have a progressive disease and the person’s death in consequence of that disease can reasonably be expected within 6 months.

Including an absolute time-frame is not required. If a patient does exceed the 6 months, the benefits may be re-addressed at three years.
