Long-term Care insurance policies have evolved over the years, but a standard long-term care policy still has two issues that many people find to be a deal-breaker.
One: All conventional stand-alone long-term care policies are guaranteed renewable. That means, you have the right to renew your policy at the end of each term, but the insurance company has the right to increase the premium on all its policies in a specific state. Let's face it, conventional long-term care policies are, after all, a type of health insurance policy, and we all know what the history of health insurance premiums has been over time. As a historical fact, almost all conventional long-term care policies have delivered significant price increases to their insureds over the past few years. Purchasing a plan of insurance which has an indeterminate cost as one is entering a stage of life where income tends to be fixed is not a sound financial decision.
Two: While modern long-term care policies do an excellent job of covering the costs of care in multiple venues, the question still remains: "What if I pay for this policy for twenty years and never need care?" Well, a stand-alone conventional long-term care policy is, after all, an insurance policy. Insurance policies are purchased to protect the insured against financial loss in the event of an unforseen event. No one asks "What if I pay premiums on a homeowner's policy for twenty years and never have a claim?" But somehow that sentiment about long-term care has been an impediment to taking action for many people.
To address these concerns, several insurance companies have developed new solutions for the problem of long-term care. These innovative solutions involve a product that is based on either a life insurance policy or an annuity. With these products, premiums are fixed and will never increase and if care is never needed, a benefit can be passed to children, grandchildren, or a favorite charity.
