WELCOME TO LTC CONSUMER! YOUR LONG TERM CARE RESOURCE
You do a lot to plan for the future. You purchase health insurance in case you get sick, life insurance to protect your family, and you may open an IRA and/or 401(k) account to prepare for retirement.
Did you know? Your financial goals are incomplete without a plan to cover the cost of an extended illness or accident.
According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, 70% of people turning age 65 will need long term care at some point in their lives.
Does traditional health insurance pay for long term care? Unfortunately, it doesn’t. Health insurance pays for medical expenses, doctors’ services and hospital stays. In most cases, it won’t cover the costs of a home health aide or assisted therapy.
What about Medicare or Medicaid? Medicare and Medicaid might cover some costs, but they have severe restrictions and limitations.
Forming a long term care plan — whether it be through private long term care insurance (LTCI), LTCI provided by an employer, or by setting aside assets to pay for future events — is an important responsibility.
By making a plan for your care now, you can remain independent, choose where you receive treatment, preserve your savings, and above all, protect your family from the emotional and financial strain of providing care.
