Two things,

You need to read the study by the New England Journal of Medicine on their long-term study. The other thing that you have done, like most clients I have helped, is to initially justify not needing long-term care because "its not going to happen to you". Then you can say you do not need it. The second thing to keep in mind is that you have not made this concious decision with your health insurance, which you probably use only once or twice a year, nor your auto insurance, nor your homeowners insurance. Even if it was not the law to have these coverages you would still keep them, because you see car accidents all the time and house fires on the news daily. If this is your way of dealing with it, albeit, expensive then that is good for you. Just keep in mind that nursing facilities are like insurance companies, they are in business to make money. Once you get past that fact, or statistic, all you have to decide is who do you want to pay for your care.
