Long Term Care Insurance

Long Term Care Insurance

Long term care is defined as an extended period of time when a person requires someone else to help him with his physical or emotional needs. One may require long term care due to an extended or terminal illness, disability, injury or old age. Per the National Care Planning Council*, 60% of people will require some type of extended care during their lifetime. If you or a family member required nursing home care, would your family be able to maintain their standard of living? For many people, this would cause devastating financial hardship. Incorporating long term care insurance (LTCi) into your financial plan will provide you with the confidence knowing that your family’s assets are protected.

According to experts, the average stay in a nursing home is approximately 2.5 years.* The cost of nursing home care is staggering, and in most cases, Medicare does not cover the cost of long term care. Without the proper amount of LTCi coverage in place, your assets could be rapidly depleted.

There are four main reasons why people purchase Long Term Care Coverage:

  1. To maintain independence so that they don’t have to rely on loved ones
  2. To protect their assets against the high cost of long term care and to preserve their family’s inheritance
  3. To provide more options for themselves other than nursing home care such as home health care or custodial care
  4. To preserve their standard of living
