The 4 Solutions for Long Term Care: Short Term Care Insurance

What does short term care insurance cost?

The cost is going to vary for short term care insurance based on your age and the policy you end up choosing. One great aspect about STC insurance is that it offers unisex pricing. With traditional long term care insurance, women cost more as they are more likely to live longer and utilize these services.

With Policy 1, the home health-care benefits and maximum are separate from your use of facility care.

These numbers can be decreased or increased depending on the waiting period, benefit days, and how large of benefit you would like daily or monthly. Policies also vary in the way they pay for days.

It gives your family protection from out of pocket expenses for a year so they can focus on getting your finances in place for if or when they take over paying the long term care bill. No matter what route you go, the most important thing is that you have some sort of plan in place. If you don’t, the people who suffer the most will be your family who have to do this last-minute planning
