LONG TERM CARE

Long-Term Care Insurance (LTCI) is a type of coverage that offers financial assistance to those who need ongoing help with everyday activities caused by chronic illnesses or impairments. LTCI can be put to use for a variety of care needs, from in-home assistance to residential facilities and nursing homes. Many insurance companies offer policies that pay a set amount of money each day for custodial care services. The cost of the policy depends on factors such as age, health status, and type of coverage purchased.

The majority of LTCI policies are sold through private insurance companies but there are some government programs available as well. These plans typically have a lifetime maximum benefit limit and may include shared care options where more than one person can use the same policy to cover their long-term care expenses. Policies also vary in terms of how much they will pay per day and what types of services they will cover - such as physical therapy or respite care - so it’s important to read all the fine print before making a purchase decision.

Considering one's overall financial situation is paramount when deciding whether or not to purchase an LTCI policy, as premiums are generally quite steep in comparison to other life insurance products such as term life or whole life policies. It may be difficult - or even impossible - for those with pre-existing medical conditions to obtain an LTCI policy from some providers, despite fulfilling the other qualifications.
