What is Long-Term Care Insurance?

In general, the phrase "long-term care" refers to a broad range of services you may need for an extended period of time because of a chronic illness or disability.

Long-term care includes medical services, such as nursing care or therapies. It also includes supportive services, such as bathing, dressing, getting in and out of bed, taking medicines, or preparing meals. Long-term care can be provided in a variety of settings, including nursing homes, your home, an adult day care center, or a group living arrangement with supportive services.

Long-term care insurance is an effective way to help protect your assets and savings against the rising costs of care. Another major advantage of this valuable protection is not having to rely on family and friends for all your care needs.

What about my health insurance or Medicare?

There's a big difference between health insurance and long-term care insurance! Health insurance (including Medicare) generally only pays the cost of treating illness or injuries, including doctor visits, hospitalization, and lab tests. Many people believe they can rely on Medicare to pay for any long-term care services they will need.

The Fact Is:
Medicare does not pay for what comprises the majority of long-term care services - non-skilled assistance with the activities of daily living. Medicare only pays for long-term care if you require skilled services or recuperative care for a maximum of 100 days.

If you want to help protect your income and assets, long-term care insurance should be an essential part of your retirement plan.

I'm young and healthy. Why would I need long-term care?

The need for long-term care can come at any age, regardless of health status. Many people who truly intend to purchase long-term care insurance put it off, thinking they can wait until they are older before deciding to buy.

The fact is a person can need long-term care services at any age. Forty (40%) percent of people currently receiving long-term care are adults 18 to 64. Seventy (70%) percent of adults who live beyond age 65 will need some type of long-term care services.

You may be in good health today...but waiting may be costly. If your health changes, or should you suffer an accident, you may become uninsurable and unable to obtain insurance at any price. And then you could be faced with paying all the bills yourself.
