There is nothing more tragic than watching a loved one that has lived their lives suffers from a sickness or disease and they have no insurance to help ease the pain. When we start to age, as we all do our bodies are tired and will start to wither away. Long term health care insurance is expensive yes, but think about not having it. Where would you be if there was no insurance to cover most of your bills? So many pay more for their houses and cars than they do for health insurance which is very sad and wrong.
When your parents start aging you must have some sort of long term health care insurance or it can cost them and you your life savings, not to mention your house and car. I honestly feel that our parents took care of us and now it is our turn to take care of them. There are three major factors when considering health insurance, long term in particular. It is where you live, your age and how healthy you are. These all factor into the price of the long term health care insurance.
If you start out young purchasing long term health care insurance the cheaper the rates will be and you are able to get more benefits if you should ever need it. People that are healthy when young and stay that way will more likely be healthy when they start to age. Some insurance companies will deduct around ten percent of the premiums which can really add up. Once that premium each year that you pay out, it cannot not be changed even if your health worsens or you get older, which you will.
All insurance companies that deal with long term health care insurance demand a physical for each person being insured. This determines the cost of the premiums that one is entitled to and the tax deductions. You should not lie about your health; you will eventually get caught and can lose your insurance. It also depends on what part of the United States you live in that determines the cost of your insurance.
If you live in the big metropolitan areas expect to pay quite a lot of money for your premiums each year, those living in rural areas won’t pay as much. So get with a good long term health care insurance company and sit down with them and decide what you want and need. Children of aging parents can do this as well.
