Navigating Home Care Funding Through Long-Term Care Insurance

Are You Covered by Long-Term Care Insurance?

If you, or a family member, have Long-Term Care (LTC) insurance, you might be in a position to significantly offset the costs associated with home care services. Grasping the nuances of your insurance policy is crucial before submitting a claim, and Modern Vintage Home Care in Houston stands ready to guide you through this process.

Navigating the Long-Term Care Insurance Claim Procedure

As the demand for long-term care has surged over the past few decades, encompassing a broad spectrum of services, Long-Term Care Insurance (LTCI) has emerged as a vital solution for covering these needs. Nonetheless, navigating the claim process can appear daunting and intricate for many policyholders, filled with various steps to achieve approval.

Eligibility for Initiating a Claim May Include:

The need for assistance with two or more Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), such as eating, dressing, bathing, toileting, transferring (getting in and out of a bed or chair), and maintaining continence.

Cognitive impairment in the individual requiring care.

Considerations Before Filing a Claim:

What is the duration of my elimination period*? Does it count calendar days or service days? Is there a specified minimum number of hours per day required for it to be considered a day of care?

How many ADLs must I need assistance with to qualify for benefits?

What are my daily, weekly, or monthly benefit limits? What is the total benefit my policy provides?

Will I need to continue paying premiums once my policy is activated?

If my need for care ceases or if I am hospitalized, does my elimination period reset?
