You are working hard saving so you can live the life you want in retirement. Long-term care coverage is the next step in helping you keep that lifestyle. As costs rise, health care experts are engaging in a fierce debate about whether the coverage is worth the years of premiums. Even when people do go into a nursing home, those bills may not be as enormous as many people believe. Half of men and nearly 40% of women who use nursing-home care never have a stay exceeding three months, according to a recent study by the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College.
People are living longer than ever. But 70% of those over 65 will need long term care at some point. Health insurance won’t pay for it. Medicare and Medicaid may provide limited coverage, but only if you meet certain criteria. Long term care insurance, on the other hand, can provide you the coverage you need to live your life on your terms, where you want.
Why Do You Need It?
One day if you are unable to perform simple everyday tasks by yourself, like going to the bathroom, getting dressed, feeding yourself, or getting from place to place, you will need long term care services or support.
Long term care insurance helps cover the costs of care providers and support services in the location that’s right for you. For many people, that’s in their own home. Coverage helps fund not just in-home care, but can also be used to fund home modifications like wheelchair ramps or adjustments needed to make a bathroom accessible.
If you require an assisted living facility or nursing home, your coverage goes toward those costs. Either way, you choose the amount of coverage that’s right for you and then apply that coverage amount to the cost of the care you need.
