Long Term Care (LTC) is needed when a chronic condition such as Alzheimer’s or stroke makes it too difficult to function independently. It covers a broad spectrum of services from home care to adult day care and assisted living, to nursing facility care.
LTC insurance may be your best option to help cover the future costs of care. It protects assets from serious erosion, while allowing access to quality care in the most appropriate and desirable setting. Some consider LTC insurance a gift to their families, unburdening them from caregiving responsibilities, while at the same time, providing “inheritance insurance.”
Certain pre-existing health conditions may make it impossible for you to qualify for long term care insurance. But if you are in relatively good health, now is the time to start the process.
As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, some carriers have temporarily suspended LTC applications for those age 65 and older. Applications will be postponed for those age 65 and older who have already applied.
It makes financial sense to consider Long Term Care insurance now because securing coverage today is far more economical than applying in the future.
Buy Before Your Next Birthday. Your age when you apply will impact your premium payments for as long as you have insurance. Once you’re insured, premiums do not increase just because you get older. Waiting doesn’t pay—if you purchase sooner, you will pay less over time.
Chances Are You’ll Never Be Healthier. You’ll save significantly—as much as 20% annually—if you qualify for a preferred health discount. You’ll receive the discount for the lifetime of the policy, regardless of future health changes. As you age, your chances of qualifying for preferred rates will likely diminish. If you wait too long, a sudden decline in health could even become a barrier to obtaining coverage.
