“We get calls daily from spouses or family members who are looking for insurance that will pay for home care services,” explains Jesse Slome, director of the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance (AALTCI). “Most of the time, the individual is too old or can not health qualify for traditional long-term care insurance.
The trade group just posted a new four-minute video that shares a home care insurance policy available in a number of states. The policy can provide up to $750-per-week for home care services when the individual meets the policy requirements.
“Traditional long term care insurance policies stop taking new applications after age 75 and most are sold with a 90-day deductible or elimination period,” Slome shares. ”Often, especially with older individuals, home care services are desired immediately and when we find an option worth considering, we like to share it with consumers.”\
