Private Long-Term Care Insurance: Cost, Coverage, and Restrictions.
Wiener, Joshua M.; And Others
Gerontologist, v27 n4 p487-93 Aug 1987
Conducted descriptive analysis of 31 private long-term care insurance policies. Examined policies for premium rates, extent and levels of coverage, restrictions of eligibility to purchase a policy, and indemnity payment levels. Findings suggest that policies are expensive, impose numerous restrictions, offer limited coverage for certain services, and provide indemnity payments that fail to account for inflation. (Author)
