What is Long-Term Care Insurance?

Long-Term Care Insurance (LTCI) is a specialized insurance policy designed to cover the costs associated with extended care services that may be needed when individuals can no longer care for themselves due to aging, chronic illness, disability, or cognitive impairments. These services often include assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as bathing, dressing, eating, and mobility, as well as support for instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) like meal preparation and medication management.

How Does It Work?

Coverage for Care Services

Long-Term Care Insurance provides coverage for a range of long-term care services, such as nursing home care, assisted living, in-home care, and adult day care. This coverage helps policyholders pay for the assistance they may need with daily activities due to chronic illnesses, disabilities, or aging.

Premium Payments and Benefits

Policyholders pay regular premiums to the insurance company in exchange for coverage. If they require long-term care, the insurance company provides financial benefits to cover the associated costs, subject to policy terms, limits, and waiting periods.

Assessing Eligibility and Care Needs

Policyholders must meet certain eligibility criteria to access benefits. Typically, they need to demonstrate that they require assistance with specific activities of daily living, as defined in the policy. Insurance companies often require assessments by healthcare professionals to determine the level of care needed.

Asset Protection

One of the primary benefits of LTCI is asset protection. Without insurance, the high costs of long-term care services can quickly deplete your savings and assets. LTCI helps preserve your assets, ensuring they can be passed on to your heirs.
