What is long-term care insurance?
These are individual insurance policies that may help you when you are unable to take care of yourself due to prolonged illness or disability. These policies usually pay for skilled, intermediate, and custodial care in a nursing home. Home health care, adult day care, and assisted living care are also often covered. These policies usually pay a fixed amount per day or per visit to facilities or caregivers that are licensed by the state and/or participate in Medicaid and Medicare.
