Long-Term Care

Long-term care insurance provides a pool of money to help you cover the expense of care in your own home, an assisted living facility, an adult day care center or a nursing home. Besides your personal savings and retirement income, Medicare (your health insurance after age 65) may pay up to 100 days in a skilled facility AFTER a 3-day hospital visit. Medicaid only covers long-term care if you spend down your assets to very low levels. Long-term care insurance is designed to pick up and provide coverage where Medicare and your State Health supplement leave off.
