Reducing Long Term Care Health Insurance Costs

In all cases when you buy insurance if you can reduce the risk to the insurance company, you can save money.

Here is a list of potential ways to save money on long term care health insurance:

  1. Find a group policy for long term care health insurance. Group coverage will always be less expensive. The risk for the long term care health insurance company is reduced because it is spread among the group. The challenge is that group policies may be restricted in what they cover. You can always supplement a group policy with some additional individual coverage, if you need it.
  1. Buy early. If you wait to buy long term care health insurance until you are in your 60's your premiums will be much higher. Premium increases are steep in this age bracket.

  3. You can also consider a long term care health insurance policy which only pays a percentage of the actual costs of care. This is another way to keep premiums lower.
  4. Always compare quotes. While you are comparing quotes, also compare long term care health insurance companies. The long term care health insurance company with the lowest premiums may actually have a track record of the most premium increases. Check all the factors which might affect you. If a long term care health insurance company increases premiums frequently, and you are buying insurance while you are young, you may more than make up the money you sav...
