It can be tempting to buy the long term care insurance plan offered at work: it’s convenient and sounds like a sensible idea, especially in midst of all the advertisement.

Couples’ premiums with good health were an average of 36.12% less than group plans.
Individuals’ premiums with good health were an average of 15.49% less than group plans.
