What Other Options Can I Get With My Policy?

Long-term care insurance, unlike many other types of insurance, is a fairly straightforward insurance product. While long-term care policies have additional options you can get, just like most other insurance, you may or may not need anything added onto the basic coverage. In any case, additional options to your policy will be quite limited.

Perhaps you suffered a re-injury. Youd want your long-term care insurance to kick back in, right? If so, you want to ensure benefit's. This feature will put benefit's back in place, as long as you have recovered for a specified period of time. Typically, you need to have been without benefit's for 6 months before they can resume.

One other option to consider is non-forfeiture benefit's. If you are seriously ill, the ...
