Long-term care policies offer security … for a price
Abstract: Medicare and standard health insurance can protect individuals from home-care, nursing-home or other care-related costs while recovering from surgery, an injury, an illness or another health issue. But they don’t cover such care long-term. Those who worry about how they’d afford care beyond those limits without depleting their estate might want to look into long-term care insurance. This article looks at the different kinds of policies, their tax treatment, and why it’s important to become familiar with their terms, conditions and features.
