Cost of Long-term Care Insurance

health1Long-term care insurance premiums are based on your age at the time you apply for coverage, so the younger you are, the less premium you will pay. There are other factors that affect premium as well and some of the factors vary by company, so always check with an agent that specializes in long-term care insurance.





Other Factors That Affect Long Term Care Insurance Premiums:

  • Your health at the time you apply
  • The length of your benefit period
  • The policy’s features, benefits and options
  • Discounts you may be eligible for
  • Carrier you choose

It is important to point out that despite long-term care insurance seeming expensive, the alternative (having no long-term care insurance) is much more costly! Considering the cost of long-term care today – a single year of needing care would have paid for many years of long-term care insurance premiums!
