Long Term Care Insurance – West Hartford CT

For Long-Term Care Insurance Options Call PBI

The PBI Insurance team would like to talk with you about Long Term Care Insurance. PBI Insurance is Connecticut company that provides individuals and businesses with insurance and financial planning resources. Many people have never heard of long term care insurance – and what you don’t know can lead to potential financial ruin for yourself or a loved one. We believe it is important to open a dialog about long-term care with your spouse and your family.

Long-term care describes a person’s medical needs and non-medical personal care. Care can be provided from a number of different sources, from friends and family members to paid home assistance to nursing facilities. Suppose your parent has a debilitating condition, such as dementia, ALS, or a medical condition from which he is not expected to recover. Medical services are entirely separate from non-medical services. Non-medical services include meal preparation and feeding, bathing, reminders to take prescribed medications on schedule, bathroom assistance, and other “custodial” care.

Most Long term care in the U.S. occurs in the home, not in a nursing facility. Opening up a dialog about your long-term care options with a trusted insurance agency is the first step. It is important to understand what your financial burden will be with the options before you, and how to qualify for and receive benefits with which to pay for needed services. A 2013 Public Opinion Strategies poll found that 65% or Americans surveyed have made no long-term care plans at all. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 70% of those over 65 will need some sort of long-term care during their lifetimes.

One of the greatest potential risks faced by America’s elderly is the need for long-term care. Long-term care insurance transfers a portion of the risk of long-term care expenses to an insurance company helping to protect you and your family from potentially devastating expenses. Medicare and Medicaid are federal programs that pay for portions of medical or non-medical care. Medicaid is the payor of last resort for those with no assets. There are strict financial eligibility requirements associated with Medicaid hat vary from one state to another. Medicaid planning can be complex and challenging, and we strongly advise you consult a professional who can work through the eligibility requirements with you. Private long term care insurance is an option open to those who are able to afford it. There are many types of long term care insurance with a wide variety of benefits. Veterans Administration Benefits also provide a home care/assisted living benefit, usually available to veterans and their spouses. Again, you must meet certain criteria to qualify for VA benefits.

When it comes to end of life care, what you don’t know can devastate you financially. At PBI Insurance, we will be happy to meet with you to talk about your options for long-term care. We have offices in West Hartford and Hamden for your convenience. We are PBI, and we are in the business of insuring your future. Call 860-233-1171 today.

MEDICARE SUPPLEMENTAL INSURANCE – MEDIGAP

Medicare is a federal health insurance program for Americans who are age 65 or older, younger people with disabilities, and those of any age suffering from permanent kidney damage. Medicare coverage is the same for people who qualify based on disability as for those who qualify based on age. For those who are eligible, the full range of Medicare benefits are available. Coverage includes certain hospital, nursing home, home health, physician, and community-based services.

Medicare Supplemental Insurance (Medigap) plans are divided into Plans A through N. Anyone with this Medigap coverage will be accepted anywhere in the country that takes Medicare. Not all insurance carriers offer every plan, but all plans are identical. These plans only differ by the monthly premium charged by each insurance carrier. The first step in choosing your Medigap policy is to decide on the benefits you need and want while considering your current and future health care needs. You must already have Medicare parts A and B. If you have a Medicare Advantage Plan, you should make sure you can leave that plan before your Medigap policy goes into effect. At PBI we shop the market and get the lowest premium for your Medicare supplemental insurance policy. We will do our best to tailor a plan that is right for you.
