What to Do When Insurers Fail to Cover Long-Term Care Expenses
Long-term care insurance is intended to provide essential care necessary when an injury or medical condition interferes with a person’s ability to independently care for him or herself. Long-term care insurance covers costs not usually covered by traditional health insurance or Medicare, and long-term care expenses average $56,000 per year. Benefits available under a long-term care insurance policy can include:
- Help with daily activities in your home
- Adult day care and other community programs
- Nursing home care
- Visits by nurses or other home health care professionals
- Medical devices
Many long-term care insurance policies are drafted by insurance company attorneys and contain provisions specifically designed to limit the responsibility of the insurer or to make it more difficult for policyholders to obtain coverage and compensation. It is therefore essential that policyholders’ rights are protected against bad faith insurance practices designed to make it more difficult for individuals to receive the long-term care benefits they are due.
