Insurance Coverage for In-Home Care

Does insurance cover home care services for seniors? The answer is: maybe.

Long-Term Care Insurance

Some long-term care insurance policies cover certain in-home care services. Check your policy to see if it covers the services you need at home. We work with many long-term care (LTC) insurance companies to bring you the covered services you need over the short or long term.

VA Benefits

The Veterans Administration also offers financial programs that pay cash to veterans and/or their spouses. These funds may be used to help pay for home care for veterans.

It's often a confusing and burdensome process to figure out if your insurance or the Veterans Administration will cover the home care services you need. We're here to help. We can help you find out if you qualify for any VA programs.

If you have questions about how to pay for senior care, give us a call: (860) 236-5995. We will be happy to discuss your options.
