Does Long Term Care Insurance Cover Assisted Living?
Long Term Care (LTC) is a benefit designed to assist people with health or personal care needs during a period of time. Kenwood Care is frequently asked if their Long Term Care Insurance covers assisted living. The answer depends on your LTC plan.
Long Term Care Coverage
Generally speaking, LTC is designed to be flexible when it comes to elderly care. It can pay for assisted living, nursing homes and adult day care. Some plans do not cover in-home health care services.
The amount of coverage you have under an LTC plan varies by policy. Amounts can typically range from $2,000-$10,000 monthly. Long Term Care benefits usually will not kick in unless at least 2 of the activities of daily living can not be done by the policyholder.
Choose a Home Covered by Your Plan
Step 1 of the process is to determine if your Long Term Care insurance covers assisted living homes in general. Review your policy and call your carrier to determine this. Step 2 is to determine if the senior home you have chosen is approved by your insurance company. Contact your insurance company to verify if your new assisted living community qualifies under the provisions of your plan.
