Long Term Care Insurance Cost

You can likely guess that long term care insurance costs might be a valid concern while planning for the future.  After all, in California, the average cost of a shared room in a nursing home is about $214 and for a private room, the cost is about $286 per day.  So, how much is the insurance that pays for nursing home care?

We’ll talk about the cost of long term care insurance, but first we need to be on the same page about what it costs if you or a loved one needs long term care. 

Long Term Care Costs

If you haven’t looked at the numbers yet, this is going to be a shocker.  These numbers are for the state of California.

  • Pulling in the $214/$286 per day, that’s $78,110 to $94,170 a year, on average. 
  • High cost of living areas like San Francisco, San Diego, and Los Angeles demand much higher payments – even up to $497 per day, which is $181,405 per year. 
  • The average stay in a nursing home is 2.5 years.  That’s $195,275 on average, for a shared room. 
  • If a couple needs care, the costs are doubled.  That’s $390,550. 
  • Shockingly, these fees are for basic care; they don’t include personal products like Depends, sitters and attendants, or getting your hair or nails done. 
  • And, lastly, an important question:  With health care costs skyrocketing at more than 4% annually, how much will that nursing home cost by the time you need it?  Yikes! 

Long Term Care Insurance Costs

This is actually good news:

  • All the premiums, you pay over your entire lifetime, will likely be less than the cost of one year in a nursing home. 
  • You can pick a long term insurance policy that fits your budget.  If premiums are going to take food off your table, you shouldn’t buy it, but, otherwise, there are a myriad of ways to make it work. 
  • Long term care annuities allow you to get ALL your money back if you don’t use it to pay for LTC. 
  • Costs depend on how much protection you buy, the options you select, your age at purchase, and your health when you apply for coverage. 
  • Costs vary widely, depending on your coverage selections as well as your age and health.  For example, long term care insurance costs may range from a $1,500 to $7,000+, depending on your individual situation and goals.
