70% of Americans
More than 70% of Americans over age 65 will require long term care at some point in their lives. According to 2018 statistics, from Price Waterhouse Cooper, 18% will need long term care for 5 years or more. Hopefully you know that long-term care insurance [LTCi] is the only insurance designed to pay long-term care [LTC] expenses for home health care, assisted living facilities and nursing homes. And that you know that Medicare, Medicare Supplements and health insurance do not cover long term care expenses.
According to a Genworth 2018 survey, the cost for a private room in a Minnesota nursing home is over $122,000 per year. An assisted living facility charges more than $48,000/year and the cost of home health care is over $66,000/year without insurance. Most Americans cannot afford these services and as a result end up using their retirement savings and/or being a burden to their families.
