How Can I Save Money on Long-Term Care Insurance?

  • September 16th, 2013
A

While long-term care insurance can be a good way to pay for a nursing home stay or a home health care worker, it doesn't come cheap. Annual premiums vary significantly, depending on your age, health, and the type of policy, but policies can run as high as $5,000 per year. You do not need to pay that much, however. There are some ways to reduce costs:

  • Buy a shorter benefit period
  • Buy when you are younger
  • Get a “shared care” policy with your spouse
  • Purchase a longer elimination period
  • Reduce the daily benefit amount
  • Buy inflation protection with simple-interest increases
