A Few Basics on Long-Term Care Insurance

Are you worried about how to pay the costs of care for yourself or a senior loved one?  

Let’s bust a myth: For a senior with non-medical needsoptions like health insurance, Medicare or Medicaid will NOT cover the costs of senior care. One of the best ways to financially prepare for long-term care is investing in a Long-Term Care insurance (LTCi) policy.

What does LTCi cover? 

  • Covers in-home care 
  • Covers assisted living costs 
  • Covers skilled nursing 
  • Covers memory care communities 

Not only does LTCi cover in-home care through home care providers, it also covers other options like assisted living, skilled nursing and memory care communities. Some of the key components to consider when purchasing an LTCi policy are the benefit amount, the benefit period and the elimination period.
