Key questions to ask about your LTC insurance policy

To help you better understand your LTC insurance policy, BrightStar Care suggests the following questions:

  • What is the elimination period (out-of-pocket, self-pay) before your policy takes effect? Is it calendar days or days of paid care? What are the minimum hours a day that will count? Does a hospital stay or rehab stay count?
  • How many ADLs (activities of daily living) do you need assistance with to qualify for activating your policy/claim? Does dementia count?
  • Are a doctor's orders needed to qualify?
  • Will the insurance company send out a nurse to do an assessment?
  • What is your daily, weekly, monthly maximum? Do you have an inflation clause in your policy?
  • Does your premium stop once you activate the policy?
  • If you stop needing care or you are hospitalized, does the elimination period start over?

The sooner you initiate your claim, the sooner your elimination period (deductible) will be met.
