Long Term Care Insurance
If you are concerned about maintaining your financial independence in the future, having a choice of services to consider and protecting your assets, consider a Long Term Care insurance policy.
The majority of long term care costs are essentially not covered by Medicare or most health insurance products. Only 18% of expenses are estimated to be covered. Medicaid covers nursing home care, but only for individuals who spend their assets down to the poverty level.
The need for Long Term Care insurance is significant. Long term care represents the largest out-of-pocket expense faced by older Americans. Almost 50% of those age 65 and older need long term care at some point in time. Costs average $40,000 per year for nursing home care, and in some areas can exceed $80,000. Home health care expenses can also be significant. Many times, the cost of home health care can equal or even exceed the cost of a nursing home stay.
The best time to buy Long Term Care insurance is when you're young and in good health. If you wait too long, your premiums will be higher, based on age, and you may not qualify based on changes in your health.
What would happen if you were unable to take care of yourself due to an accident or major illness? OR Your parents need long term care? AND
