What Will Long-Term Care Insurance Cover?

Nov 29, 2018

Will all Long-Term Care insurance policies cover the entire cost of skilled nursing care? Almost never!! Remember that all such policies have a maximum daily benefit they will pay and for how long. Usually, the nursing home patient has to add to the insurance benefits in order to pay the full cost. It is prudent to review the provisions of your Long-term Care insurance with a skilled Elderlaw attorney.
