Long Term Care Program to be explained

The enrollment period for this benefit is a short one beginning Jan. 22, 2013 to Feb. 15, 2013.

The ISU Benefits Office has issued the following information when considering long term care insurance:

ā€œIt covers expenses for long term care services received at home, in the community or in a nursing facility. Here are a few quick points to consider:

  • Neither health nor disability insurance will cover this kind of care.
  • Relying on government programs may not be a viable solution.
  • Without insurance, the costs of these services may have to come out of your savings or income.ā€
