Cohen, Marc A.; And Others
Gerontologist, v33 n1 p105-13 Feb 1993
Examined over 6,000 elderly long-term care insurance purchasers. Found that typical policy sold cost $102 per month, covered five years of nursing home care and paid $69 per day in benefits. Close to one-third of purchasers had incomes under $20,000, 63% used some savings to pay premiums, 37% spent more than 5% of income on policies. (Author/NB)
