Recovery Care

Consider this; Medicare generally does not pay for short or long-term care. Medicare also doesn’t pay for help with activities of daily living. Some examples of activities of daily living include bathing yourself, feeding yourself and getting dressed.

Short Term Care 

 

Short Term Care plans, also known as convalescent care plans, are plans that help cover your expenses associated from care received after rehabilitation from a hospital stay, recovery from illness or recovery from injury or surgery. These plans generally have a benefit period of one year or less.

 

Long Term Care

 

According to Medicare’s website, in 2010 about nine million men and women over the age of 65 will need long-term care. By 2020, 12 million older Americans will need long-term care. Where will the money to pay for this care come from? Remember, Medicare does not generally pay for short or long term care. These expenses can be monumental, and can deplete a person’s life saving in only a short amount of time. Long Term Care plans are designed to cover these expenses and help you protect your assets.
