What is it?
Long-term care insurance helps you pay for your extended medical needs in a nursing home facility or in the comfort of your own home.
Who needs it?
Long-term care insurance should be an important part of every family’s planning. While we’d like to think that we will never need long-term care, or that we could easily afford it the statistics suggest otherwise:
70 percent of people over age 65 will need some type of long-term care services during their lifetime.
3 years is the average duration of long-term care needed per individual.
$91,250 is the average annual cost of private nursing home care.
$80,300 is the average annual cost of at-home nursing care.
Traditional medical insurance programs and government medical insurance programs don’t usually provide enough help. According to the Department of Health and Human Services, Medicare only pays for long-term care services for a maximum of 100 days, with a copay after the 20th day, and only if you meet certain criteria. Medicaid does pay for long-term care, but only if your income is below a certain level, and you meet state requirements.
How does it work?
Knights of Columbus Long-Term Care insurance policies establish a pool of money (also known as a maximum lifetime benefit), which is determined by a number of options that you choose from (see below). That pool of money is then available for you to use to cover qualified long-term care expenses. When the pool of money is exhausted, your long-term care policy ends.
The Knights of Columbus also offers a spousal discount program, through which spouses who apply for long-term care insurance coverage together are eligible for up to a 30 percent discount.
