Premium Ranges for LTC Insurance Coverage

How much will it cost me? The best way to answer your question is to speak to a broker you're comfy with, and use that broker to help you make the best coverage decisions for your individual situation. Why? Because for every person, there can be over 3000 different premium levels for each policy, as the cost depends upon how much and what kind of coverage you want, as well as your state of health.

To illustrate the improbability of obtaining anything other than generic LTC insurance quotes without personal assistance from a licensed professional, we've listed a wide range of generalized, hypothetical, premium expenses for a hypothetical person(s) at several different ages.

Options for the Setting of Care

Facility Only - Covers you for care received in a licensed Assisted Living or Skilled Nursing Facility, but not for care received in a non-licensed setting such as your home.

Integrated Home Care @ 100% - Covers you for care received in a licensed Assisted Living or Skilled Nursing Facility. In addition, covers you for care received in a non-licensed setting such as your home.

Benefit Payment Options

Maximum Daily Benefit - $50 to $400 - How much you want the company to pay out per day?

Benefit Period - 2, 3, 4, 5 or unlimited years - How long you want to receive benefits for your care?

Elimination Period - 0, 20, 30, 60, 90 or 100+ days - How soon you want the payments to begin once you are eligible? The elimination period is the number of days you are willing to pay for care out of your own pocket. Longer elimination period means a lower premium to you.

5% Inflation Adjustment - Refers not to your premium expense, but to your Maximum Daily Benefit. Increases the dollar value of your benefit 5% each policy year to keep pace with rising care costs.

Health can also be an important factor in premium prices.
