How much does long-term care cost?
Currently, the cost of long-term care in a skilled-care facility in Northern Kentucky ranges between $6,500.00 to $9,000.00 monthly. Even a short stay in such a facility can have a major adverse impact on your financial well-being.
Who will pay for the cost of long-term care?
Frequently, an individual or family believes that (1) Medicare, (2) their health insurance, or (3) their disability insurance will pay this expense. The reality is that NONE of these is a source of payment, except if an individual is admitted to the facility after a "qualified stay" in a hospital and the individual requires "qualified medical care". In such an instance, Medicare benefits could be available, but only up to a maximum of 100 days, with a co-pay after the first 20 days and with payment only continuing as long as the person is receiving qualified medical care (usually a type of therapy) and exhibiting some benefit from said therapy.
