I would like to continue to talking about some additional notes on long term care insurance. In my last post I spoke about the waiting time that one may need to wait once they qualify for benefits. In this post I would like to speak about another key point about long term care insurance and that is the amount of coverage allowed by the insurance company. Well, in reality it is not the amount allowed by the insurance company, but what was purchased. Long term care insurance can be purchased to cover a certain amount of coverage per day. Typically, this is listed in the form of a dollar amount.
When folks are deciding to determine how much money to allocate for coverage, one will need to really look at a couple of items. The first items someone needs to consider is how strongly they feel about staying at home or how nice of an assisted living facility they want to live in. Once you have the answer to either of these items, it becomes easy, by simply pricing out those options today! Once you price out those options today you will know what you need to plan for with long term care insurance and secure. The last variable will be guarding your amount against inflation and purchasing an inflation rider over that dollar amount. This rider will guarantee you desire to remain at home with coverage or a specific kind of assisted living facility remains attainable for many years in the future.
