Staying healthy and active during the “golden years”
Long-term care insurance policies have a benefit period or lifetime benefit maximum,
which is the total amount of time or total amount of dollars up to which benefits
will be paid.
Common benefit periods for long-term care policies are two, three, four, and five
years, and lifetime or unlimited coverage. Other options between five years and lifetime/unlimited
coverage are also available from many companies. Most policies translate these time
periods into dollar amounts and do not actually limit the number of days for which
they will pay for care – just the overall dollar amount that the policy will pay.
There are fewer companies today willing to offer an unlimited/lifetime policy, although
some have a “high coverage option” like a $1 million lifetime limit. (SOURCE: www.longtermcare.gov)
Long Term Care Insurance: a type of insurance developed specifically to cover the
costs of long-term care services, most of which are not covered by traditional health
insurance or Medicare. (SOURCE: www.longtermcare.gov)
In addition to traditional insurance options, Vision Advisors also offers Life/LTC
and Annuity/LTC hybrid products, which have become increasingly popular among clients
due to their flexibility in design and the ability to adapt the use of the product
The Life/LTC combination products typically provide access to a portion of the death
benefit to pay for long term care services under qualifying situations. The Annuity/LTC
hybrid products either provide access to the income benefit directly, or provide
additional funding for long term care through some type of enhanced care rider.
