Frequently asked questions


How Can Long Term Care Insurance Help?

Long term care insurance is designed to cover the costs of care services that are not typically covered by traditional health insurance or Medicare. By investing in long term care insurance, you can protect your savings and assets while ensuring access to quality care for your loved ones when they need it most.

Do you need help in reviewing your insurance or do you have any questions about financing your customize home care plan? 

Can I still purchase long term care insurance for my parents?

Yes, it is possible to purchase long term care insurance for parents, although eligibility and availability may vary depending on the insurance provider and the parents’ health status.

Does Medicare cover long term care costs?

Medicare provides limited coverage for short-term skilled nursing care and certain home health services but does not cover the majority of long-term care costs, including custodial care and assistance with daily living activities.

What is the difference between in-home care and assisted living facilities?

In-home care involves receiving care services in the comfort of one’s own home, provided by caregivers who assist with activities of daily living and other tasks. Assisted living facilities, on the other hand, are residential communities that offer housing, meals, and assistance with daily activities in a group setting.

Are pre-existing conditions covered by long term care insurance?

Pre-existing conditions may affect eligibility for coverage or result in exclusions or limitations on coverage for certain conditions. It’s important to review the policy terms and any pre-existing condition clauses before purchasing long term care insurance.

How do I file a claim with my long term care insurance provider?

To file a claim with your long term care insurance provider, you typically need to contact the insurance company directly or work with your care provider to initiate the claims process. You will likely need to provide documentation of the care services received and meet any eligibility requirements outlined in your policy.

How does long term care insurance differ from health insurance?

Long term care insurance is specifically designed to cover the costs of long-term care services, whereas health insurance typically focuses on covering medical expenses such as doctor visits, hospital stays, and prescription medications

What is the elimination period in long term care insurance?

The elimination period, also known as the waiting period, is the length of time that must pass before the insurance benefits begin to pay for covered services. It is similar to a deductible and can range from a few days to several months, depending on the policy.

Will my long term care insurance premiums increase over time?

Long term care insurance premiums may increase over time, especially if the insurance company experiences higher-than-expected claims costs or changes its pricing structure. Some policies offer fixed premiums, while others may be subject to periodic rate adjustments.

What happens if I never need long term care?

 If you never need long term care, you may not receive any benefits from your long term care insurance policy. However, some policies offer return of premium or cash value features that provide a refund of premiums paid if care is never needed.

How do I choose the right long term care insurance policy?

Choosing the right long term care insurance policy involves carefully evaluating your individual needs, budget, and preferences. It’s essential to compare policy features, benefits, and costs from multiple insurance providers, consider factors such as inflation protection and elimination periods, and consult with a knowledgeable insurance agent or financial advisor for guidance.
