When a person needs
long-term care, an LTCI
plan can minimize the financial and emotional impact of the situation.
WHAT IS LONG-TERM CARE INSURANCE?
Unlike traditional health insurance, long-term care insurance is designed to cover long-term services and supports, including personal and custodial care in a variety of settings such as your home, a community organization, or other facility. LTCI plans are both about preserving one's lifestyle and deciding how long-term health care needs will be met as they arise, without having to burden your loved ones with the costs.
Long term care isn't usually covered by private medical insurance and major medical insurance plans. Medicare only pays for skilled and rehabilitative care after a three-day hospital stay; this excludes custodial care, the assistance someone needs for daily living. Medicaid only covers nursing home bills after a loved one is bereft of assets.
THE COSTS AND RISKS OF LONG-TERM CARE
A nursing home stay costs an average of $87,000 per year according to a recent, national study, and this is just one of many costs associated with long-term care.*
