Some attorneys understand long term care insurance, others don’t.
Recently, a social media content writer, who blogs for elder law attorneys, wrote a blog that was filled with false and misleading statements about long term care insurance. Unfortunately, unsuspecting attorneys copied and pasted this blog not realize how misinformed the blogger was. Consumers have more choices today for long term care insurance than ever before. In most states, twice as many companies sell long term care insurance than medical insurance.
Here are the false and misleading statements made by the blogger:
The blogger stated that "40% of people who apply for long term care insurance policies are turned down for health reasons." That is completely false.
The blogger then stated that "the policies do not offer life coverage." This statement is also completely false.
Lastly, the blogger made this uninformed statement: "they are short term policies and if your need for coverage exceeds the policy term then the money spent on premiums is wasted."
For example, a married couple both age 61, in average health, could share a Long-Term Care Partnership Policy with $250,000 of benefits. Their premium would be about $100 per month per spouse. If they used all $250,000 in the policy, they could apply for Medicaid and protect $250,000 of their savings from Medicaid.
If you want to protect more savings you can buy more benefits for a higher premium.
If you have less savings you can buy less benefits for a lower premium.
You can target how much coverage you want based upon how much of your savings you want to protect from Medicaid.
In every case a lifetime of savings can be protected through a Long-Term Care Partnership Policy.
The Long-Term Care Partnership Programs are the equitable solution to the crisis facing our nation. The wealthy pay more to protect more assets. The “not-so-wealthy” pay less and can still protect all of their assets.
