Economic Downturn Impacting Women's Ability to Plan for Long-Term Care Costs, New Survey Finds
Date:1/8/2009

incorrectly believe they have long-term care coverage.

For those who said they do not have long-term care insurance, 42 percent said they would rely on government programs, such as Medicaid, to cover long-term care costs. Others said they would sell assets (31 percent), use their retirement savings (31 percent), or rely on family and friends (12 percent) to help with these costs. Twenty-three percent incorrectly believe that other insurance would provide assistance for long-term care costs.

AHIP supports legislation that would make long-term care insurance more accessible and affordable, including legislation to allow employers to offer long-term care insurance through cafeteria plans or flexible spending arrangements. Sixty-one percent of women surveyed said they would be more likely to purchase long-term care insurance if they could deduct premiums from income taxes. Forty-two percent said they would be more likely to purchase if they could use non-taxable funds such as IRAs or 401(k)s to pay premiums.

This consumer-friendly website provides consumers with basic information about long-term care insurance, including videos that feature real-life stories from current policyholders, an interactive online quiz, and additional resources on the value long-term care insurance provides.
