Long-term care insurance gives you financial protection against the cost of long-term care services. Make sure you buy the right long-term care insurance policy that is right for you.
Some policies offer more coverage than other polices. Read the policy carefully to see what is and what isn't covered.
Supervision - Maximum Assistance
Some people might not be able to get a long-term care insurance policy because they have a pre-existing condition. A pre-existing condition is a health problem you have before getting a new insurance policy.
It is better to buy a long-term care insurance policy at a younger age when premiums are lower. If this is done, a periodic review is advised to make sure your policy covers your current and future long-term care needs.
