Home Health Care

Home health care can cost more than $4,000 per month. With long-term care insurance, much of these costs can be absorbed by your policy. That’s why it’s important to plan ahead for your home health care needs by purchasing a long-term care insurance policy.

Here’s more information about home health care and its costs.

Paying Out-Of-Pocket

Most clients who have home health care pay out of pocket. Many gather their savings to pay for these services. They tap into their annuities, investments and savings, or even their life insurance policies. In some cases, this isn’t enough, and they end up borrowing from banks, friends, or family.

Paying out of pocket for home health care services can be devastating to your retirement savings. If you have to refinance your mortgage or take a home equity loan, you are putting your place of living at risk.

Saving On Care
If you have no option but to pay for home health care privately, there is a way to save money. Rather than hiring an aide through a company, you can hire them directly. This is typically cheaper, but choosing this route comes with more responsibilities.

Government Help

In some cases, the government will help people who don’t have long-term care insurance and can’t afford to pay using their existing financial resources. Medicaid, for example, pays for home health services. They are willing to help with home-care bills if the individual has a low income or limited assets. Medicare will also pay for some home health services under the correct circumstances.

Why Purchase Long-Term Care Insurance?

If you don’t qualify for assistance from Medicaid, you may be left to pay the total cost of home health care on your own. By purchasing coverage in advance, you can protect yourself from these adverse circumstances.
