You know the importance of long term care insurance and you’ve made up your mind you really need to get it. However, you also realize that it will cost you some extra after getting your auto, home, health and, perhaps, life insurance. Here’s how you can easily pay for it…But before I go into how you can easily pay for it, let me take time out to ensure we’re all on the same plate. This provides for you if you need care above and beyond such a period when your health insurance will no longer give you coverage.It will cost you around $100K to stay in a nursing home for a year. And if you’re a couple, that’s around $200k. Long term care insurance will take care of you if you have to spend time in a nursing home or use specialized care providers at your home. It saves you the pain of seeing your life investment go to waste because you have to pay for prolonged care. It also allows members of your immediate family have a life of their own in the event that you need such long term care.If you’ve not looked after a sick elderly or anyone who needed special care for a protracted period you can only guess how stressful it is. I’ve had first hand experience and believe me, it takes a lot from you. Furthermore, you, the recipient of such long term care, will have a feeling of worthlessness at the inconvenience you’re causing your loved ones.Now, how can you pay for it with ease? This is my recommendation: Visit three reputable insurance quotes sites and get your quotes. And to make it even easier on yourself, also get quotes for your existing insurance policies like auto, home, health and life. Why should you do this? You should do this because you will save several hundred dollars on your current policies. Unless you’ve taken out time to do this not so long ago, you could be paying much more than you should.Done well, the savings realized could fund your premium albeit partly. Therefore, take your time to do this well.
