Long Term Care Insurance | St Charles MO

Long-term care refers to the many services beyond medical care and nursing care used by people who have disabilities or chronic (long-lasting) illnesses. Long Term Care Insurance in St Charles, MO helps you pay for these services, which can be very expensive. A policy also ensures that you can make your own choices about what long-term care services you receive and where you receive them.

Ordinary health insurance won't cover it.

People are living longer and longer these days. That's good news, but the flip side of that is there are more years in which there's a risk of serious health problems. And that could literally cost all of your remaining life's savings. Unfortunately, ordinary health insurance policies and Medicare usually do not pay for long-term care expenses. Medicaid, a federal/state health insurance program, will only pay for long-term care if you've already spent most of your savings or other assets. So, there's long-term care insurance.

Long-term care insurance typically covers the cost of:

» Help in your home with daily activities like bathing, dressing, eating and cleaning.
» Community programs, such as adult day care.
» Assisted living services that are provided in a special residential setting other than your own home. These services may include meals, health monitoring, and help with daily activities.
» Visiting nurses.
» Care in a nursing home.
