What exactly is long-term care insurance and how does it work?

With long-term care insurance (LTCI), you are guaranteed to be paid a certain amount of money towards care for a specified length of time.

As the age of the covered individual increases, so does the premium, so in order to get a better rate, this is something that you may want to purchase earlier in life while the premiums are still low.

Indemnity-type insurance actually distributes the money to the caregivers, and pays the daily benefit directly to the insured party; this type can be easier because there is much less paperwork and more flexibility about how the money can be spent.
