Paying for Health Care and Long Term Care Expenses
Who Will Pay The Tab?
For Many- Their Children Will Pay
75% Americans Have No Long-Term Care Insurance*
Medicare Will Not Pay For Long-Term Care*
Medicaid Pays For 50% of Nursing Home Stays*
$76,000 Is The Average Annual Cost for a Semi-Private Room in Georgia*($6,333/mo.)
For many retirees, paying for out of pocket medical expenses will become a huge drain on their retirement savings. These expenses include everything not covered by Medicare and supplemental medical plans, as well as long-term care expenses. Remember, Medicare does not pay for non-skilled long-term care!
The Price Tag for LTC
According to Fidelity Investments, couples now approaching retirement may spend upwards of $250,000, or about $12,000 per year, on out-of-pocket expenses, including co-pays for medical care and prescription drugs. (This is based on an average of 20+ years spent in retirement.)
Long-term Care rates vary by state, but the national average for 2018 hovers at around $7,500 per month. The average length of stay in long-term care is 2-3 years.
With costs becoming almost prohibitive, many insurers are pulling out of the long-term care market. This may present a considerable problem in the future.
By 2018 Only 18 LTC Insurance Carriers Offered Individual LTC
According to AARP, in the year 2000 there were 125 insurance carriers providing long-term care coverage.
Previously, the Only LTC Payment Options Were:
- Self-insure. The dangers here are obvious. Unless you have substantial retirement savings, at almost $70,000-$100,000 per year for long-term care alone, one can deplete a sizable nest egg in a hurry.
- Purchase private long-term care insurance at a cost of $3,000 to 4,500 per year, per person, (and rising). In the event that long-term care is not needed, this premium not refunded. It is money lost.
