Long-term care is the inability to care for one’s self due to an illness, injury or disability. This care provides assistance with daily living activities and is provided in a variety of settings, including in-home care. The need for long-term care can last for a few months to many years.
Long-term care for an individual can cost from $60,000 to more than $100,000 per year. These costs can severely disrupt the financial security of affected families. Private health insurance and Medicare are not intended to pay for long-term care. Long-term care insurance is becoming a popular way to protect against financial hardship when the need arises.
Make sure you have a plan for you and your family. Call FDA Services at 800.877.7597 to learn about long-term care insurance or go to http://www.completelongtermcare.com/assoc/fda.aspx.
