Do you know exactly what you expect to happen in your life, now, next year, five years from now, 10 years from now, or even 30 years from now? Most people can’t guarantee what’s going to happen, but they certainly can plan for a wide range of provisions. That’s one of the reasons why so many people focus on retirement, building a solid 401(k) plan, saving, investing, and more.
People also plan for care options in the future.
For example, some people carry a life insurance policy that will provide financial resources for their family in the event they pass away. They can pass away unexpectedly, leaving their spouse and children to fend for themselves if they don’t plan properly. Other people look at carrying a solid health insurance policy to make sure they get adequate care and support that doesn’t financially leave them in ruin.
Advanced care planning should include long-term care insurance.
While life insurance, health insurance, automobile insurance, and other policies are certainly an important component of great life planning, long-term care insurance is also crucial. Unfortunately, most people don’t take this seriously.
They simply don’t consider the prospect of relying on or needing any type of long-term care. They assume if they have a health emergency that they will return home, recover for a few weeks, and everything will get back to normal. They assume their spouse or family will rally around and help them with whatever they need.
Yet, in the event long-term care is required, the cost can be tremendous. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a nursing home care, assisted living, some other independent living environment, or even long-term home care. If it extends beyond just a few weeks, becomes months and months or even years of support and care, that could be hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Most health insurance policies will not provide that kind of coverage. Even if they have provisions for some type of extended care, there will be a limit on not just how long but how much the policy pays out.
For those who are diligent in planning for their future, for those who take care of their finances, they should be certain to include long-term care in those plans. When they begin to realize the potential cost of long-term care, most of those situations or unexpected emergencies, they will realize how much it could save them and their family in the future. Talking to long term-care insurance companies can provide information on this matter.
