Top 4 Myths Of Long Term Care
It Won’t Happen
In fact, Americans over the age of 65 years have a 70% chance of needing some form of long term care in their lifetime.
I’m Covered by Medicare / Medicaid
Medicare & Medicaid aren’t the whole story. Medicare only covers a portion of skilled nursing costs up to 100 days.
Medicaid only applies to individuals who qualify based on their income / asset levels.
That’s What My Savings Is For
Long-term care costs add up fast. It’s estimated that an unexpected long-term care event may cause clients to burn through their retirement assets 2 to 3 times faster than expected.
My Family Will Take Care Of Me
Caregiving involves lifting, bathing and toileting which can take an emotional and physical toll. It’s no wonder a spouse caring for their disabled spouse is 6 times more likely to suffer from anxiety or depression.
Did you know?
The average annual cost of a private room in a nursing home in 2015 was $91,250. Without Long-Term Care insurance you have decided to pay for your own long term care expenses.

Will you need LTC?
Approximately 70% of people over the age 65 will require some form of long-term care services during their lifetime, and more than 40% will require this care in a nursing home.

Still considering life without long-term care insurance?
Not purchasing Long-Term Care Insurance will save you some money. You may save $200-$300 per month (based on the cost of an average LTC plan). If you don’t need care, this money can accumulate for your heirs or you can spend it how you choose.
You will need to depend on your own resources to arrange for care. A spouse, adult children or a friend will need to contact government agencies or use the “Yellow Pages” to coordinate and find the quality of care you desire.
You will need to write personal checks for home health care or care in a facility. The money you saved not buying Long-Term Care Insurance will quickly be exhausted by the expenses for your care. The National average for a private room in a Nursing Home is $91,250 a year. Home Health Aide Services average $58,240 per year. (Based on 8 hours of care per day at the average rate of $20 / hour)
If the need for care lasts for an extended period of time, your life savings could be depleted leaving your spouse impoverished or with nothing to leave to your heirs or favorite charity.
If your life savings is spent caring for one spouse, the surviving spouse would need to depend on Medicaid or Welfare for their potential care needs and living expenses.
Review the Cost of Care in Your State
Is a Long-Term Care Insurance Policy the Answer?
The conventional wisdom has been that if you have limited income and resources (defined by many experts as having assets, including your home, that total $50,000 or less) you can forgo this insurance. The government — i.e., Medicaid — will pay for your care which is limited to select facilities that accept Medicaid.
But if your assets are not limited to $50,000, Long-Term Care Insurance is most likely your best option. Long-Term Care Insurance will preserve your assets for your heirs, spare them the physical, emotional and financial burdens of caring for you. Long-Term Care Insurance will allow your family to oversee your care rather than make life sacrifices to provide it.
You can’t out invest insurance.
