WHAT LONG-TERM CARE COVERS

With Long-Term Care (LTC), the cost of caring for chronic illness or disability is covered, while your hard-earned wealth is preserved for your family. Long-term care insurance generally covers the expenses of:

  • Nursing homes
  • Assisted living programs
  • In-home care
  • Custodial care
  • Alzheimer’s care
  • Hospice

HOME AND COMMUNITY-BASED CARE SERVICES

Long-term care may cover the costs of a variety of home and other services, such as physical, speech and occupational therapists, visiting nurses, adult day care and hospice care. It’s important to know the different types of care available:

  • Skilled Care—24/7 treatment by a registered nurse under a doctor’s supervision
  • Intermediate Care—Occasional nursing and rehabilitative care under the supervision of experienced medical personnel
  • Custodial Care—Provides personal care needs to help with daily activities, including help eating and bathing

MEDICAID AND LONG-TERM CARE

Some Long-Term Care (LTC) coverage is available through Medicaid, but only after you and your spouse have used most of your assets.

CHOOSING YOUR OWN PROVIDER

LTC insurance enables you to choose your private nursing home, assisted living facility, or home health care provider without considering if they accept Medicaid.

LONG-TERM CARE CALCULATOR

Find out how much long-term care insurance you need.

HOW YOUR AGE AFFECTS YOUR INSURANCE PREMIUM

Your premium is based on your age at the time you enroll in your LTC plan. So, if you purchase the insurance at 40 years old, the costs would be much lower than it would be at 75 years old. However, age should not be a determining factor in deciding on long-term care. About 60 percent of individuals over age 65 will require at least some type of LTC services.
