Medicare Supplement Insurance
Medicare supplement policies do not cover long term care costs. However, four Medicare supplement policies – Plans D, G, I and J – do pay up to $1600 per year for services to people recovering at home from an illness, injury or surgery.
Medicaid is the government funded program that pays nursing home care only for individuals who are low income and who have spent most of their assets. Many people start paying for nursing home care out of their own funds and “spend down” their income until they are eligible for Medicaid. Medicaid may then pay part or all of their nursing home costs. You may have to use up most of your assets on your health care before Medicaid is able to help.
