Long term care applies to the ongoing care of individuals of all ages who can no longer perform basic activities of daily living (ADL), such as bathing, dressing or eating, due to illness, injury or cognitive disorder. With Medicaid having strict financial eligibility requirements, a large portion of your savings can be exhausted before you can become eligible to start receiving benefit from Medicare.
Common features and provisions of long term care policies require close attention when considering coverage, such as the elimination period, the duration of benefits, the range of care, pre-existing conditions and more.
