How Long Term Care Insurance Works

Have you ever thought about how you will pay for skilled care if you need it in the future? According to Genworth’s most recent Cost of Care Survey, 7 out of 10 people will need long-term care at some point in their life, and while the cost of that care varies for every person, it can average as much as $100,000 annually or more.

In NYC boroughs like Brooklyn, NY, and Queens, that average is even higher. One year in a skilled care facility there can cost $144,000 or more. You may not want to think about having to live in an NYC skilled nursing facility, but the reality is that most area residents will need that type of care. Luckily, there is a way you can plan for these expenses and give yourself peace of mind.

Most individuals purchase Long Term Care Insurance for the following reasons:

Long Term Care Insurance covers the costs associated with prolonged custodial care at home or in a facility. With the right Long Term Care Insurance, you or a loved one can have the ability to choose the type of care you want, whether that is in a nursing home, assisted living facility, adult daycare center, or even in your own home, where you want it the most. You may want to consider purchasing this insurance even if you are young. Here are a few reasons why any time is the right time to think about getting Long Term Care Insurance coverage:

  • Demand is increasing for LTC Insurance, and that means higher costs.
  • Policy options are cheaper when you are young and in good health.
  • LTC Insurance gives you the flexibility to plan for your future the way you want.
  • An LTC Insurance policy can protect your assets from being lost if you need skilled care.
  • Your Long Term Care policy will prevent you from becoming a financial burden to your family in the future.

Is Long Term Care Insurance a good option for you?

The question is not as easy to answer as you might think. Statistically 6 out of 10 people will require some form of Long Term Care. Purchasing Long Term Care insurance can be an overwhelming task for most with all the different variables associated with a Long Term Care policy.

In addition to traditional Long Term Care Insurance options several new options have been gaining popularity in recent years:

1. Is Traditional Long Term Care Insurance a good option for you?

As its name implies, a traditional policy is designed to cover the long term care expenses of the policyholder. It gives you the freedom to choose how and where you will receive care and  you can also decide how long your policy will be in effect;  a few years or even for the rest of your life.

However, the high cost and the possibility of not using it is why insurance companies offer combination plans that combine the best features of Long Term Care Insurance  with Life Insurance or a fixed annuity.

2. Short Term Care Insurance

A more modest approach to Long term Care  is the Short Term Policy which covers up to 360 days at home or in a facility.  Qualifying is easier. Unlike with traditional insurance plans, you might not have to answer as many medical underwriting questions and the premiums are far lower.

3. Hybrid Life & Long Term Care Policies

Another increasingly popular option that combines Life Insurance with Long Term Care Insurance.  With a Hybrid Policy, you can tap the full death benefit to help pay for Long Term Care. If you don’t need help, your heirs get the full payout.

Purchasing Long Term Care insurance can be an overwhelming task for most with all the different variables associated with a Long Term Care policy. Let Margolis & Associates help you determine which companies offer insurance policies that will meet all your needs, now and in the future.
