Written on July 15, 2013 – 2:05 pm | by Brian Wallace |

The costs and need for long-term care are rising, and it is important to protect your retirement, and your family from large costs. It is highly likely that you will require long-term care in your lifetime – 70 percent of people ages 65+ will require long-term care, and out of those who already have long-term needs, 42 percent of those are below age 65.  Medicaid only covers 52 percent of long-term care facility costs; and on average 41 percent of costs are paid out of pocket. If you acquire insurance earlier rather than later, you can spare yourself of many costs and risks.
