Understanding Long-Term Care Insurance
Long-term care insurance may help cover the expenses of extended care services, including essential activities of daily living (ADLs) such as bathing, dressing, eating, toileting and transferring. It can also provide crucial coverage for care related to cognitive impairments like Alzheimer’s disease.
Long-term care insurance can provide a lifeline for those without substantial financial resources to manage long-term care expenses out of pocket. If you have a family history of chronic illnesses or want to safeguard your assets from caregiving costs, long-term care insurance may provide the assistance you need.
How Does Long-Term Care Insurance Work?
If you cannot perform two or more ADLs independently or receive a cognitive impairment diagnosis, long-term care insurance may come to your aid.
Many policies impose a waiting period, during which you would be responsible for your care expenses. Once the elimination period is satisfied, the insurance benefits typically activate, offering you covered services at home, in an assisted living facility or in a nursing home, depending on your preferences and care needs. The benefits extend up to the policy’s daily or monthly maximum amount and for the specified duration mentioned in the policy.
Before finalizing your long-term care insurance policy, review the coverage specifics, including benefit limits.
Why Buy Long-Term Care Insurance?
