I can get long term coverage through my late husband's company. I decided at age 66 to go ahead with it. You never know what life has in store for you. Three years ago I was surprised by a diagnosis of breast cancer. I opted for the Comprehensive coverage (includes in home care) at a $100 per day benefit with a 3 year total lifetime benefit. This costs me $1264 per year and every so many years you can chose to increase coverage for inflation. The amount I chose will only partially cover my costs should I need to use them. For the amount I pay, it is worth a little peace of mind. I chose the 3 year benefit because if I should need more I hope someone shoots me dead!
