Buy long term care insurance

Received Sept. 10

Please buy Long Term Care Insurance for yourself and your parents before the age of 60. It is cheap. After age 60, most people will have a disqualifying disease. By the year 2023, the annual cost of a nursing home in Idaho will exceed $100,000. Health insurance and Medicare do not pay for nursing home care. For Medicaid benefits, a person must sell all possessions and have an income below $800.00. About ninety percent of the Social Security income will go to the nursing home.
