How Can It Benefit You & Your Loved Ones?
Reduction In Financial Risks
Short Term Care (STC) insurance addresses significant financial risks facing individuals today. The National Advisory Center for Short Term Care Information was created to share information that can help you discover how short-term care insurance works and how it can benefit you and those you care about.
According to an AARP Report (2013), many hospitals have coded patients as “Observation Status” even when patients remained overnight due to financial penalties by Medicare, when they readmitted too many patients. This could mean a 20% coinsurance, that can add up to thousands of dollars you don’t have!
No Wait Time
Short-term care insurance also has a 0 day-wait, which allows beneficiaries to get immediate access to their benefits in their time of need, with coverage of up to 360 days. According to the National Advisory Center, 41% of all long-term care insurance policy claims last less than 1 year (2016)
What Does It Cover?
Short-term Care Insurance covers:
1) Home Health Care
2) Assisted Living Facilities
3) Skilled Nursing Home Stays
4) Adult Day Care/Hospice Care
Short-term care insurance policies can vary in terms of what they cover as well as coverage limits. But, in general, these policies will cover all of the above listed.
