Long Term Care is Good Insurance
You’re young, you’re strong, you’re military. Why think about long term care health insurance? Isn’t long term care insurance (LTCI) for elderly veterans or those in nursing homes?
Not completely. LTCI can also help you right now, if you’re temporarily injured, or disabled with a chronic condition.
Several insurance providers sponsor strong-quality LTCI programs for members of the military, veterans, retirees from federal or military service, and specified military and federal employees’ relatives. While active military and retired veterans both qualify for the Federal Long-Term Care Insurance Program (FLTCIP), it may not be the least expensive or the right option for you.
