Long term care insurance? Don’t I already have that?

There are many myths about long term care insurance. One of the biggest myths is that health and/or disability insurance pays for long term care expenses. In fact, many people automatically assume their insurance or Medicare will pay for their long term care. Those types of insurance were not designed to cover long term care.

  • Health Insurance/Medicare—Covers short-term acute care such as hospital stays, operations, prescription drugs, and doctor’s visits.
  • Disability Insurance—Replaces a portion of your income and is typically used to pay for basic living expenses when you can’t perform your job.
  • Long term care insurance—Is designed to reimburse expenses you may incur for help with everyday activities you would normally take for granted, like bathing, dressing and moving around when you can no longer care for yourself. This care can be received in the comfort of your own home or in an assisted living or nursing facility if needed.

Don’t let myths keep you from taking control of your future. Learn more about our long term care insurance offering for employees and family members.
