My fellow blogger and long term care specialist Beatrixxx Lewis of has shared another informative long term care post, particularly in the state of Arizona. Find time to read it to further enrich your knowledge in long term care insurance, its costs, policy types and benefits. 

Residents of Arizona might not be aware of it but the costs of coverage for long term care insurance in Arizona belong to the upper bracket of states that have more expensive monthly premiums than the others. This means that the residents must act now and they should start getting their own insurance policies before it is too late.

In case you do not know, the costs and other rates of LTC plans offered in all states in the country incessantly grow every year. The increase is from a whopping 10% to 12%, which gives the residents even tougher challenges to secure themselves of an LTC plan that can help them pay their LTC needs.

But even though the rates are quite high, the public can still make use of the different policy options and policy types that the insurance providers offer. this is also the reason why it is essential for an individual to plan his LTC purchase beforehand.

LTC insurance is quite complicated and there might be some terminologies and conditions that might confuse the consumers. So in order to understand and comprehend it better, they should know and learn how it works even before they avail one.

The insurance agents and the insurance companies alike should see to it that they were able to explain and discuss every little detail of a possible insurance contract with their clients. By doing this, they can avoid future misunderstanding and confusion with regards to the policy of the individual.

An Arizona long term care insurance policy have three possible policy types that the public can choose from:
  • Reimbursement policy – This is the most common policy type in the country because it is a lot cheaper than the other alternatives. By owning a policy that fall under this, the insurance owner will be given or paid the exact amount of services that he was able to use even if his allotted benefit amount is higher. Whatever extra amount that he can save will stay in his policy trust fund, which can also prolong his benefit coverage period.
  •  Indemnity type – This particular LTC type is more expensive than the first type because it gives the individual the full amount of his insurance plan regardless if he was unable to consume his benefit amount. The insurance owner can have the freedom on how he would spend the money that will be given to him but he must make sure that it can cover all his needs.

  • Partnership policy – Partnership plans offer two more additional policy features that could help the policyholders achieve bigger benefits. Considering that Partnership policies are cheap, the public can get even more benefits by availing this policy type. However, they must first make sure that their state has Partnership plan options before they can get one.

B     But an individual must remember that all these policy types are very strict in terms of the benefit amount of the policyholders. Whichever way or process they reimburse or pay the insured persons for the services that they incurred, insurance providers will no longer handle any amount that would exceed the permitted benefit amount per person. When this happens, the individual must personally for any succeeding or extra LTC services that he will receive.
