Long term care insurance policies are designed to help provide for the costs of long term care for patients. These policies are typically intended to cover the costs of caring for seniors and the elderly as they age. Long term care insurance policies are designed to cover situations that are not covered by regular health insurance policies, Medicaid or Medicare.
Long term care insurance policies differ from traditional health insurance policies as they are not intended to cover one time medical costs for those who are sick. Instead, these policies provide coverage for individuals who have ongoing expenses for medical and other necessary care they require on a daily basis. Long term care insurance can provide coverage for daily expenses at nursing homes or home health care services such as basic day to day activities like bathing, going to the bathroom, getting dressed, eating, walking, or other normal physical activities.
Most of the people who buy long term care insurance plans are those who worry about needing assistance as they approach their senior years. Extended or long term care can be very expensive, especially for those who need high levels of skilled medical care and assistance. Long term care insurance can help protect your finances, while allowing you to afford the care you need.
