Long-Term Care Insurance
It is never too early to plan for Long-Term Care
Long-term care is usually not medical care and generally does not require a doctor or a nurse.The need for LTC is not always age related. Although more than half of all individuals age 65 & over will need LTC at some point, it is important to note that roughly 40% of those receiving LTC today are between the ages of 18 and 64.
Because Long-Term Care services generally are not covered, or covered only minimally, by health insurance, Medicare or Medicaid, it is never too early to plan for long-term care.
