Who Will Benefit and Who Should Buy Long Term Care Insurance Plans

April 12, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 141

While the number of those individuals who believe in the importance of LTC insurance in their lives increase, there are still some people who doubt that they would ever need an LTC plan to compensate for the possible LTC services and facilities that they will need in the future. With great confidence that they will not be included in the long list of those who should buy long term care insurance, they prefer to just save up for now and use whatever savings they will have in paying their LTC needs.

But unfortunately, this way of thinking might only lead them to greater financial burdens in the future because the rates and other costs of LTC services and facilities continue to soar as the years pass by. This means that even if some people would try to save up for them to be able to pay for the services that they will use, their savings may still not be enough to get all their needed facilities and services, thus limiting them to get only the services that their savings can afford.

As of the moment, the rates of LTC plans increase by as much as 18 percent annually, making it harder for average income earners, and to those who belong below the poverty level, to avail their own LTC insurance policy. But the longer they delay their plan purchase, the more difficult it would be for them to get one in the future particularly if the rates are increasing continuously.

Also, almost all individuals are considered and included to those who should buy long term care insurance policies because based on some surveys and studies conducted several years ago, an average person who reaches the age of 60 and above, would need to receive and use LTC services and facilities at least once in their entire lifetime, even if they do not have major or serious medical problem.

It was also found out that the average stay of an insured individual in a nursing home facility usually lasts up to five years so purchasing an LTC insurance policy with this benefit coverage period is highly recommended. But this may not be ideal especially to those who need longer medical treatment and professional assistance. It is better to know one's health condition and health needs first before deciding on the benefit coverage period that he will have.

Those who dream of a more comfortable and worry-free lives in their retirement year should also consider getting an LTC plan. Not only will they be able to enjoy the health and medical benefits that it provides, they can also spare their children and other loved ones of the burden of taking care of them and focus on their work and family lives instead.

We cannot blame those who think that LTC plans are not for them and that they are not considered as one of those who should buy long term care insurance, particularly because they do not have extra budget to pay for the monthly premiums. But if they will only learn the numerous ways of getting cheaper premiums and rates, then they might change their minds and be easily convinced that buying an LTC plan is all worth it. After all, its worth, value, and effectiveness has been proven all this time.
