Most everyone knows people that has experienced a long-term care dilemma with a family member. Due to a severe physical or mental condition this loved-one now needs advanced care. Can they family render such care at home? Is there a family member that can provide the care needed? Or does the individual (or family) have the financial means to pay someone to provide the care? Maybe the individual needs to be in a care facility outside the home? If so, other questions now arise: how much will that cost; what is the best facility for them; and, where will the money come from to pay for this care? Tough questions - hard choices, to say the least. This session will explore the three logical choices for the dilemma described above: 1) be RICH and self-insure; 2) be POOR and let the government handle the problem, or, 3) be INSURED and control the options and expenses yourself.
This program will review the rules, requirements and problems associated with the “government” (Medicare, and or Medicaid) paying for such care. Also discussed will be the advantages, coverage options, riders, current trends, tax rules, underwriting criteria and potential cost of a long term care insurance policy paying for the needed care.
