Using Long Term Care Insurance to Fund Home Care

‚ÄčLong-term care insurance (LTCI) is a form of insurance that is generally intended to cover services needed to care for a person in later life. It is becoming an increasingly popular way to pay for home care and can protect your assets by paying for covered expenses up to the amounts set forth in your policy.

At Home Instead of Austin, TX, we are happy to work with you and your long term care insurance provider to facilitate the home care services you need!

Long Term Care Insurance for Home Care in Austin, TX

A LTCI policy is a signed contract between the insurance provider and the policyholder. Each policy’s provisions and policies are unique to the person and because of that, it is likely that no two policies are the same and even policies within the same insurance provider may be different.

To get the most out of the home care benefits offered, it is best to review each Long Term Care Insurance policy individually to understand the policy’s covered benefits. Home Instead of Austin, TX is happy to help you with this process!
