The American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance was established to create awareness and benefit both consumers and insurance professionals. We do not sell insurance (our members do). We do not favor or promote one insurance company over another. When we learn of opportunities that can benefit consumers, we pass along the information. Always work with a knowledgeable insurance professional you trust, read the policy and be sure to ask questions.

A Home Health Care Policy With Added Benefits (North Carolina Residents)

If you have health insurance, you might be surprised how many things are not covered. And, if you qualify for Medicare, the same is true. Health insurance (including ObamaCare) and Medicare do not cover all charges. Take a minute to read our 2-page guide "Shock Treatment" Click here to read there is NO 'sign-in' info required to access.

And, if you're thinking about long-term care, you want coverage that allows you to receive care in your own home. That's what most people want ... and a home health care insurance policy can affordably provide cash to pay for home health care services.

Many home health care policies (also referred to as "Recovery Care" or "Short-Term Care" insurance policies) will pay benefits for 1 year or less. This makes the policy far more affordable. For many people, it is all the insurance they need. While some long-term care claims last for many years, almost half (49%) of long-term care insurance claims LAST ONE YEAR OR LESS.

We have recently become aware of a Home Health Care Insurance Policy that offers residents of North Carolina BOTH Home Health Care Benefits PLUS ADDITIONAL OPTIONAL BENEFITS that pay for care that may NOT be covered by your health insurance or Medicare. Click this link to read the Kemper Home Health Care Insurance Plan brochure.

In fact, this policy will pay you a cash benefit for things like a physical exam and prescription drugs, EVEN IF YOUR HEALTH INSURANCE or MEDICARE PAYS.

HOW YOU BENEFIT -- If You Are 55 ... If You Are 65 ... if You Are 75!

A 55-year-old will pay $210-per-year for the Home Health Care Coverage with EXTRA BENEFITS. If you take prescription drugs with a RETAIL cost of around $360 a year, submit and get reimbursed about $248 ($360 less $50 deductible = $310 x 80%). If you go for an annual physical (after 1 year) you submit your bill and get reimbursed up to $150 ... even if your health insurance plan covers the charges!       YES, you could receive more back in benefits than the policy costs -- by taking advantage of all the benefits!

A 65-year-old will pay $240-per-year. This is NOT Medicare Supplement insurance but it will pay for costs not covered by Medicare ... and it will pay EVEN IF MEDICARE ALSO PAYS! If you go for an annual physical (after 1 year) you submit your bill and get reimbursed up to $150 ... even if Medicare covered the charges. And, as you get older, the chances of needing home health care grow.

A 75-year-old will pay less than $25 a month. By age 75, you likely know what home care costs. When you add up all the potential benefits offered by this coverage and the simple YES / NO health questions asked to qualify, you'll see the real potential value.

What Are The Two Questions You Must Answer "NO" To
