Americans are becoming more aware of the staggering costs associated with long-term care (LTC) for senior citizens and other people with debilitating illnesses or injuries. The annual cost for an individual's long-term care needs in a facility has surpassed $50,000 per year and continues to rise at levels that exceed normal inflation. Everyone needs to think seriously about long-term care insurance needs, whether it is for yourself or a family member.
As insurance consumers become more knowledgeable about the different product options, they also become more cognizant of the fact that government programs provide inadequate long-term care coverage and do not appear likely to increase the level of coverage anytime in the near future. As we all continue to live longer, long-term care insurance will continue to entrench itself as a necessity, and not the luxury insurance product as it has been known in the past. LTC insurance continues to experience a period of popularity, mainly due to the fact that the market is full of excellent-rated insurance carriers with rich plan options and aggressive pricing.
